Home From the Hospital

Yes it is true. I am home and feeling fine from the neck down. My head feels like my hair has been pulled much too tight and ear as though someone has pulled it off and sewn it back on. Everywhere there is stitches it's as thou I'm bursting from the seems. I think thats more of a feeling than a reality.

The ladies/nurses were very nice and helpful. I woke up at 4am and they brought me coffee as I asked. Then I asked for toast and got that as well along with hot chocolate. I tried to watch tv but other than an evangelist preaching at 4am there wasn't much to see. Finally I fell back to sleep and woke up to Connie setting her bag on the floor next to the bed.

The Doctor came in about 7 and said he thought it all looked pretty good. I didn't have the heart to tell him he hadn't cut out the cyst I wanted him to get on my left cheek. He said he had taken out two other bumps, who knows what they were. I wanted to mark the right spot the day of the surgery but we couldn't find a pen to mark it. Anyway at least he didn't remove my nose or a chunk of my lip. We'll just pray that the scar goes away. There is always so much to be thankful for.

Connie and I tried to go to Nelson Mandella Mall today which we saw, but I wasn't much fun cuz I wanted to come home and go to bed. It was my idea to go to the Mall and it was fun. We even found Cinnabon and got some rolls to bring home. Not long after we started walking around I started to feel a bit dizzy so we came home. We are here now in our locked up house where we are staying. I'll post some pictures as soon as I get back to Malawi.
