Although I was itching to get home when I finally did get back it felt a bit strange and  overwhelming. Almost like I had been on a long, surreal journey only to be plonked back into reality with a hearty thud. Which I guess is exactly what has happened. How can I go back when so much has changed? I think it will take a while for me to settle back into the comfort of routine. I will miss the conveniences of the hospital though, not having to clean and run after a toddler, being able to lie in bed all day and watch TV without feeling guilty, individual attention with a click of a button. I will not, however, miss the food.
