Dr. Harmon comes in to check my incision, which is fine. Dr. Bellin and I go over my insulin needs, which are already decreasing despite the fact that I am eating more. I get my final instructions from Val, the coordinator, and we are ready to head back to Ohio.
It is a beautiful and warm day, and the drive is pleasant. We make a few stops for food and gas, and are excited to finally get home. We arrive at about 2:45am with Gary doing all of the driving. We wake up and hug both of the girls. It has been a long time since we left them. They survived well without us and I know learned alot about running the house. If they had too much fun while we were away, at least they covered their tracks well. They both had the same question upon being awakened. "Let me see your scar?!"
