Out! (Sorta.)

My longest hospital stay ever is over; but the Sloan-Kettering medical madness, it goes on.

I was admitted immediately after my last regularly scheduled Brivanib checkup two weeks ago, with the next one scheduled for April 2. As I think I mentioned here earlier, we pushed that appointment and CT scan to today to avoid a yo-yo trip back and forth. So here I am in the familiar posture of waiting for Dr. BT. We had planned to at least start the drive back this afternoon, but we're both already exhausted and we may well not be done here until 6 p.m., so it's another night in New York City.

This one, however, will be a little bit more luxurious, offering the Kiehl's toiletries and Frette linens that Memorial Hospital, so far, lacks.

We're aching to see the kids, and they no doubt are primed to jump all over us, but I think it's going to work out a little better this way. Besides, after sleeping on a "sleeping chair" for nearly two weeks, a device that was too short, too cold, too hard and too vinyl, L. deserves a king-sized bed. I do, too.
