Lulu: “Dada has posted another entry in his series about his ruptured cerebral aneurysm in November.”
Chaplin: “This is Part 5, AKA ‘The One Where Dada Gets Discharged From The Hospital’.”
Charlee: “Ooh, that’s my favorite one.”
Lulu: “Mine too!”
Once I was well enough to leave ICU, the hospital transferred me to the “step-down unit”, also called Telemetry. (If you never heard of a unit called “Telemetry”, you’re not the only one.) I was moved by wheelchair on Saturday evening, schlepping most of my stuff—my blanket and pillow from home, the get well cards I had accumulated, the posters made by our friends’ daughter, pictures of the animals, and, of course, Substitute Charlee—on my lap. The rest of the stuff was transported in a bag by a courier, A.K.A. my wife.

everybody’s favorite patient”. That says so much about what kind of human being you are. So glad you are still here to communicate with us!
As copied from your cross-post:
You sure have a way with words, and I enjoy reading your story! Though enjoy is likely not the best choice of words, Hah!
Once again, you have shown us all the blessings you have experienced!
Your furry gang sure was excited to have you back with them:)
Dada sure has been though a lot but that was one happy homecoming!
Our huMom googled the recipe for Syracuse Salt Potatoes (she would not even be allowed to print it out if her doctor knew…) Her only comment was – “It needs sour cream.””
