Waking in my own bed is an AMAZING thing!

I have to post to tell you of my most exciting advancement.  I am HOME!!  And this morning, I woke up in my own bed, with my husband and daughters snuggling me. 
Addie was so excited I was home that she couldn't take her eyes off me...
she was completely giddy. 
I felt the exact same way! 

I could have had to stay in the hospital for several more weeks, but I was so fortunate to have passed all of the requirements quickly and didn't run into the complications that occur in so many of these cases.  I feel SO blessed!!!!  

The past two weeks have been the hardest weeks of my life, without a doubt.  There were several points where I had to stop and think...."can I really do this?"...I am tempted to explain, but probably shouldn't, but believe me when I say it has been brutal.  Through it all, I was fortunate to have my family, my friends, my support system and all of you in my mind rooting me on and giving me the strength to carry on.  It was truly amazing!!!

I am too tired right now to post more details, but wanted to share my JOY! I AM HOME!!! It will still be a LONG road, but now I have that huge surgery behind me...and it feels good to have one thing DONE!
