Going home at some point

I'm still here at the hospital, but they assure me I am going home sometime today. I have to learn about my 'leg catheter' and how to use it, get the IV out, change into some street clothes and get wheeled out of here. I feel like I've been here FOREVER!

The weird thing is that I picked up a recent Robin Cook book to read, called Marker, and it turns out the main character finds out she is BRCA1+. She has to deal with all of the thoughts associated with that, and come to a decision. It's a side story right now, about halfway through the book, so I don't know if it will be tied in with the main story. It just feels weird that the book didn't say anything about that, yet here it is. Talking about all of the emotions I went through when I found out.

Hopefully, Scott will be here soon and we can push to finish up and get out of here. I'm not so much looking forward to the 45 minute drive home, though. :(

Great that you're going home! Hope you're ok with all the needles and tubes in the car; I agree, that doesn't sound fun. Hopefully the boys will have a nice banner, preferably with homemade misspellings and such, to welcome you!

Weird synchronicity about the book. When I read that part, my first thought was, hey, maybe she'll get some inspiration, empathy, etc. Hopefully you still will. Maybe they didn't think about fellow-sufferers randomly picking it up, especially in such a vulnerable position as you; one hopes they didn't blindside you on purpose. (I would assume it will tie in to the main plot. Something that big in a novel is never an accident. Unlike real life, which never has developed character arcs. I can only speculate on what that must be like..... um, ok, I'm going to stop here before I start projecting on your reactions to the book.....)
