Adventures in Hospitalization, #7
I’m at home now. The discharge process started at 10 AM, and I actually exited the hospital around 3 PM. Diane and her mother, Marguerite, came to pick me up.
No stooping, bending, or lifting for 3 weeks. No driving in that time, either. I got instructions on diet and care of my ileostomy.
Now I have to see if I can keep up with my metabolic demands and hydration. I’m still pretty weak.

Reading through your hospitalization updates I got worried about you for a minute there. Don’t scare us like that!
It’s great to hear you’re back home again!
Get well soon.
Fantastic news! Be sure and take it easy and don’t get worn out talking on the phone. Get lots of rest and you’ll be out with the hawks in no time. So glad to hear you’re out of the hospital. My news is Diva has osteosarcoma and will have her leg amputated on Monday. Such a great little dog with a wonderful joyous personality. She’s a lovely companion for my dad and so young soooo onward we go with another cancer battle. Fingers crossed and take care. Get well soon!
Good news, Wes! Take it easy and you’ll be back fighting the good fight before you know it.
This is SUCH WONDERFUL news! I got a little worried when I checked this site Friday and there wasn’t an entry. You’d mentioned the day before that you were going to try eating that day and also that no blog entry was an indicator of a bad day. I put all that together and came up with the wrong conclusion! So glad to hear you are at home and doing well. Keep it up!!
BTW Yesterday I found the perfect spot to take Rusty hunting. It’s a gorgeous canyon near Placitas. Also saw a Great Horned Owl and her 3 babies in the cliffwall “nest”. Keep on healing fast and come see the place yourself.
Welcome home Wes. Being released means you are doing very well. Don’t rush yourself. Take this time to heal and rest. Gradually you will gain your strength back. I know your wife is happy to have you back home.
Hey Wes, so glad to hear you’re back at home. The Biola conference was interesting, as it turned out one whole talk was devoted to critiquing my flagellum essay, and I just happened to be on hand as your substitute. Don’t worry, I took notes…
Speaking of flagella, you’ll be glad to know that I just discovered that this divinely designed, irreducibly complex system which is the key piece of evidence in the new initiative to revitalize Christianity in the Academy and the nation, and make science again play its part in conservative apologetics, likely plays a key role in Crohn’s disease:
So, we know who to thank, according to the ID movement…oh wait, it looks like you may not have had Crohn’s after all? I guess my idea to make you a dart board with Crohn’s face on it is scratched, then…
Glad to hear you’re home now, Mr. Elsberry. Many of us average joes are looking forward to seeing some more articles from you over at the Panda. Besides, it looks like they could use a good kick in the pants over there.
