Day 6, potentially the day before D-Day (discharge day).
I am given a 2 hour day pass to go out into the world and test drive normal life to make sure I feel ok to go home tomorrow. How cool is that? I get to wear my street clothes, woohoo! Albeit I still have to wear a hospital mask but nonetheless, freedom with limitations is still freedom from the IV pump – I’ll take it. Question is, what do I do with this freedom (other than grab a coffee)? I have 1 hour to figure out what I want to do. Might go for a walk outside, in the fresh air, away from the hospital – there’s a concept!
Later gator – I’m off getting ready for my freedom.
