And Now For Some Recuperation

Back in one of my favorite spots
 Well Lordy lordy, the way these two are carrying on and smothering me and all you'd think I was gone
Up on the futon...
away for years!  I got to go home yesterday afternoon, and I'm already feeling much, much  better than I have

...and underneath it
in days.  Oh, and check out the awesome pink wrap they put where my IV was.  that's right- real men aren't afraid to wear pink.   I've gained some weight back, and it feels good to be able to eat and drink without my damn teeth bothering me.  
     I ended up getting four of the damn things pulled.  Apparently they were that rotted and infected.  The down side of all this fuss is that I have to have medicine every day, and I cringe when I see dad coming at me with that stupid syringe.
     I have to go back in a couple of weeks for all my follow-up crap, and mom and dad have to get me some special food now because there are still issues with my kidneys.  Kinda sucks getting old, I say.
 Though I know I already have tons of pictures like this last one, this was taken this morning- my first back home.  I did miss all my comforts.  
     I just read all your comments, and I thank you all for your kind words and well-wishes. It's nice to know I have so many friends pulling for me!

We are glad you are home. And you are right. Manly mancats look fantastic in pink. It absolutely is striking with your black furs!

glad you are home and able to eat and drink. Nothing worse than not being able to enjoy the simple things.

Orbit, I'm so glad to know you're home and steadily recuperating. I say milk it for all it's worth!

I'm so happy to hear that you are back home and feeling better already! Humans worry more when you get older, so I guess you will just have to deal with all the hovering.

Sorry to hear about your toofies, but if it makes you feel better, you won't miss them.
Recovery at home is the best and that bed looks mighty comfy.
Have a great day Orbit!
