Gone Home

We came home from the hospital on Tuesday night about 9:00.¬† I went to sleep quickly and had the first restful night since the operation. Since then, I’ve been sleeping¬† a lot, with some walks around the halls every now and then.

There’s a real tradeoff between comfort and the ability to think. The pain medicine does seem to stop the pain, but it leaves me feeling like I’m fumbling with everything, both physical and mental.

I have a “bovine tissue valve” which is apparently the best over-all choice for my age. Summary: When I’m not doped up I have more energy than I’ve had in a while, though I’m easily tired I know that sounds weird, but think of it as an improved general state with a heavy wound on top.
