Default Tuesday Nov. 12 We're Home!

Morning Mates, it is 2 am and I am still awake. Arrived home around 12:30am after a long day of flights and waiting in airports.
In case you missed the sordid details, James came down with a very serious leg infection (cellulitis) on day 2 of the 2nd cruise. He visited the hospital on board twice a day for 5 days for IV antibiotics and anti-clotting injections, and spent the rest of the time confined to the cabin with his leg elevated. He was pretty sick, and watched a lot of movies.
By the last 2 days he was able to do oral antibiotics, but still had to go for injections. We also have to go to hospital at home for an ultrasound to rule out any blood clots. I will MAKE him do this tomorrow.
Naturally, all shore excursions were canceled, so nothing to report there, but I have to say that Princess staff and crew were AWESOME with their help and care.
I'll keep you updated once I get him to the hospital later today...meanwhile, it's nice to be home.

Get well James!!!!

Good people sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

Courage and perserverance have a magical talisman; before which difficulties disappear and obstacles vanish into the air.

Pick your company wisely! Hang around people who are going to help you become all God created you to be.

Good morning

It must be a big relief to be home close to your own doctors. Wishes James a quick recovery.

And a good overcast morning to you all.

Donna, it's always a relief to get home when you've been sick. I hope James feels better soon. Please keep us posted.

Keith got sprung yesterday. He's home with a bunch of equipment. He's doing very well, though.
Yesterday was exhausting getting all the stuff set up. A neighbor came over and brought in a knee contraption that I couldn't lift.

I can't smell or taste, but I'm sure the coffee will be good!
