Thank you everyone. Each comment, tweet, visit and text message I received in hospital were so precious to me.

After almost two weeks I came home to Autumn in full decline. Each breath of fresh air I take is a treat, and the sound of my feet shuffling through dry fallen leaves in my back yard is such a novelty that it's like I am 8 years old all over again. This morning I sat in the sun and watched the Mister attempt to rake up 3 weeks worth of fallen leaves from our elm tree. It defeated him, but I think that's OK because I could crunch through those elm leaves for weeks yet, and never get tired of them.

  7. You are never too old to kick the leaves around while you shuffle through the fallen leaves. Enjoy it while you can, winter is nearly here.

    Is that multiple attempts at putting in an arterial line I can see on your wrist? If it is, I'm glad you were asleep at that point, ouch! So glad that you are getting better.

  10. So glad that you are home. Enjoy your own bed, your own bathroom, your own couch, your own clothes, your home, your street (with all those lovely crunchy leaves- be careful not to trip on the acorns!) Take care and I hope recovery at home is peaceful, needle-free and maybe even a little crafty :) xoxo

  12. Welcome home, gorgeous. May there be a good, big hit of Autumn crisp, before the whammy of Winter frost (cos there's less crunching underfoot then)...
