Home again!

Larry here, liberated yet again from the Saint John Regional Hospital. Nice place, lovely view out of some of the windows, friendly staff giving lots of kind attention, but I wouldn’t wanna live there. And lately it seems like I almost do!

I now have another PICCline installed (my third if anyone’s counting) and am carrying a pump containing the antibiotic Vancomycin which I’ll be receiving for the next week. This will necessitate a brief daily trip to the hospital to have the pump refilled. Irksome, yes, but I still feel like a released prisoner. During this hospital visit I felt fine; good vital signs and not a trace of sickness. I almost felt I was there under false pretences in a ward filled with some really damaged looking people. Hanging around a place like that can induce illness, I’m certain.

Tonight we’re going to attend the Country Star contest down on the Boardwalk, now in its finals and featuring some good talent, I’m told. And tomorrow we’ll check out our friend Mike Biggar opening for NEeMA at the Bourbon Quarter. Saint John ain’t Nashville by a long shot but there is stuff to do here and plenty of talent to enjoy. Nice to be out breathing fresh air again!
