Midnight: first day home from hospital
After months of sleeping fitfully, a week of interupted sleep, suddenly, on my first night home sleep five hours straight without moving. I find it a bit scarey.
I transfer to wheel chair, and head for bathroom. Later, I wake up, in my chair, about five feet from the bathroom door. I have no idea how long I slept there. I almost fall asleep on the toilet. Transfer back. I phone the caregiver here at the old folks home and ask him to look in on his hourly rounds. I might be asleep anywhere.
I then decided to make this entry. The caregiver did check on me and we chatted.
Next: back to bed on the new hospital bed installed in my bedroom. I am still nervous, but only one short coughing spell since I have been up. Been awake one hour... perhaps time to try to sleep more.
(Well, just one quick look at the journals I have missed this week.)
