Get out of here!

I was told to expect around a week stay in the hospital. I also heard five to seven days. To my great delight and surprise, this morning they discharged me! I did wake up with pretty bad pain this morning, but they figured out quickly how to address it with oral medication. So with pain relatively under control, and all systems in working order, I left. I am amazed and keep thinking there must be something wrong! My response is simply thanksgiving.

Believe it or not, the orders for my leaving were written up by our good friend Judy Wu (now Judy Dominick). You may remember me writing about Judy here or here.


Now some of you might be wondering if I slipped Judy some cash or somehow used my inside connection to get those orders signed. I'm going to invoke patient-doctor confidentiality on that one.

So here I am, back in my hotel room with Christine. I have to stay in Houston at least two nights in case complications arise. Now that I am out of the hospital, I am looking forward to some good rest.

I'm thinking your gonna wanna borrow my email address ( pretty soon.. smiles.. ie. because you have so much to testify about. We're so happy for you and Christine.
I love Ps 150:2 where it says.. Praise him for his mighty acts: praise him according to his excellent greatness.
And verse 6 when it says.. "Let every thing that hath breath praise the LORD. Praise ye the LORD."
We're so thankful you're able to breath w/o tubes already.. and truly have an opportunity to get some good rest this evening.. = )
