As I mentioned in the last post, Richard is out of the hospital. He is staying nice and close to the hospital at the Cancer Lodge for his very many outpatient appointments to come at the LBMT Clinic at VGH.
He has an appointment today and one tomorrow, but he gets Sunday off. His Monday appointment will not be until 2:30pm.
This means he and Norma can come stay at the house for two nights ! He'll be coming Saturday night and Sunday night, barring no unforeseen circumstances or blizzards.
I cannot wait!
From here on out, it's just kind of a 'wait and see' situation. If Richard's appointments go down to about twice a week, then he may decide to stay home instead of the lodge. If his appointments stay up at thrice a week or more, then the lodge is the better option.
Who knows, really. But I thought I'd explain for the many of you who are asking "When is he allowed to come home?"
The answer is, that he's allowed to come home, as soon as he's let out of the hospital, which was yesterday. If we lived in Vancouver, then that would make sense. But we don't. We live a long ways away in Abbotsford. When there's no traffic and no construction, the commute is as quick as 45 minutes. However, there IS construction (so the highway is 80km most of the way) and there is almost always traffic during the weekdays, even when it isn't rush hour. Sometimes the commute is then upwards of 2 hours. It sucks. Especially when you're sick. It just takes everything out of him and whoever is driving. It's exhausting.
So, is he allowed to come home? Yes, whenever he wants.
Does it make sense for him to come home? No, not yet.
