It feels good to get settled back at home again. The homecare nurse showed us how to administer the IV and maintain the PICC line yesterday. Peter helped getting me hooked up last night and this morning. Here I am getting the IV treatment and nursing Owen at the same time. It’s going to be like this for a while, I kept remind myself, I better get use to this new level of comfort. It’s not too bad after all, sure better than staying at the hospital!
The grandparents have all left. My parents brought over groceries and made us one more meal before they drove home this morning. For dinner, we went to our favorite Ethiopian restaurant with Peter’s parents before they flew back to Sweden. It was the biggest meal I’ve had since Owen was born. For the first time my stomach didn’t bother me. Owen cooperated by sleeping through the entire meal and car ride home. It was so good to feel relaxed and normal again. I have almost forgotten what this feels like.
