We are home

They finally discharged Marshall around 2:30 this afternoon.  We still haven't gotten the results of the scans.  And we learned that Century denied our request for home health care.  They didn't give a reason.  But at least we do have the palliative care thing.  So a few things still need to fall into place.

The drive home was very pleasant.  He felt good all the way.  We stopped at Walgreens to fill prescriptions for pain medications.

When we got home Marshall went to bed and after a little bit he was in pain again at the surgical site.  He took one of the breakthrough pills and it didn't seem to help.  We'll see how tonight goes.  He was thinking maybe it was the different bed causing the problem.  At the hospital not only could he adjust the bed in a million ways but the bed was constantly inflating and deflating (not sure how to describe that) to keep you from having circulation problems.  That probably helped with the pain, too.

It was so good to see the animals again.  Coco is getting so old and is having problems with his rear legs.  It's heartbreaking.  I miss him when we're gone.
