No place like home!

We're out of here today. Kay is a day ahead of usual schedule, and though the prayed for flatus is yet to arrive, we are going home anyway. Kay got a good night's sleep and feels really good today. We've been up for our tour of the four oncology pods and Kay has declared to all that the A pod rocks. None-the-less it can rock on without us.

Jean is home this morning doing last minute preparations. We have been coveting a HDTV for a while, and yesterday I visited Costco and got a nice 40" flat screen, and blue-ray player. Kay is going to have a bedroom home theatre to enjoy.

Yesterday Cheryl bought Kay a really pretty floral pattern robe, and she looks really good. A shower and shampoo at home today will finish the look.

We expect to be home by early afternoon if Kay can get her port placed early on the schedule this morning. She sure hopes so as the dreaded 3 letters of being in the hospital apply now: NPO.

We're off now for the port. Got to go.

Good job Kay on getting out of there and going home so quickly. You are a superstar! I wish I was home to help Ed with the tv, so I could watch a few shows before you get there. Enjoy your home theater and rest well. Peter

Hi Kay, Ed & Family,I have been so grateful to get all this info from Ed, ( also that i can respond here!)and thrilled to hear that you are doing so well Kay! I have been sending prayers and good karma vibrations your way...also saw Corydon this weekend so he is also sending prayers. Keep up the good work...I think NPO must stand for "Now Performing Outstandingly!"
love to all,
Kathy

And I tought I was the only one that wasn't sure what NPO stood for, how about New Purple Outfit or Never Phlilander Outdoors or Nice Proud Ovation. Laugh Kay, you have a wonderful laugh. xxoo Sara

Kay,
We are so happy you are home. You continue to amaze all of us. Once again the phrase, "There is no one like Kay Pullen comes to mind."
Remember we are planning to watch some chick flicks on that big screen T.V. so make room in the bed!!!! Patty
