Getting ready for the ride home. 6 hours in traffic and rain and snow. I prepared the car as much as I could beforehand, but there was no way it was going to be as comfy as a hospital bed. In this photo, I was still pretty unaware of the havoc that the anti-biotics and narcotics had done. About half way to home, the nausea and abdominal cramps set in and lasted for about 24 hours. My last dose of narcotics was the day I left the hospital. I'll take the pain over the nausea. I could have got some anti-nausea meds, but I was ready to be done with meds. All I needed at this point was acetaminophen anyway, so why take the heavy stuff.
