May 3 / matt


I got home a little after 1 pm today. I arrived to a wonderful and sparkling clean house thanks to Lindsay, Ben and Grace. It feels so great to be outside of the room I was stuck in for 26 days! I’m very much enjoying laying on the couch and watching tv in the comfort of my own home. Mom and Lindsay cooked me up a great non-hospital dinner. I still have another 80 days of restrictions on the road to recovery but a huge hurdle has been cleared.

Being free of the IV pole is such a relief!

Thanks to everyone for keeping me in your thoughts and prayers.

    That is so great – OK “smart ass” time. Pick a different place to find out about each day – what would you call your diary – hummmmmmmmmmm. I KNOW, I KNOW – AROUND THE WORLD IN 80 DAYS!!

    Sorry – seriously – rest relax and get better.
