If you are not from Toronto you will have to believe me when I say that today was an absolutely wonderful day to go home.  My step father John picked up Christi and me in his nice, tall truck.  Normally I hate SUVs but today it was kind of nice.

Some observations: our bed at home is more comfortable than my bed in the hospital, the music at home is better than the chorus of pings at the hospital, and my dog and my cat are fantastic roommates. 

So far today my wife has only picked me up, checked me out, fed me, undressed me, dressed me, rented me movies, and warmed my bed.  

Although it's hard to predict when I will be awake and when I will be asleep, if you don't mind the risk of catching me sleeping I'd be happy to have some visitors.  


  1. Hey Kevin, glad to hear that you're back enjoying the comforts of home. That's one more big step forward in this journey!

    I took advantage of the gorgeous weather yesterday to squeeze in more kilometers on my bike. I dedicated the ride to you, and we were flying!

    Happy birthday to Christi!

  2. OMG! That's the nicest thing I have ever heard you say about Billie (the cat).

  3. Well done Chief. Get used to being headed back into the groove.

  4. Hi Kevin. I just found out about this inspiring blog. Just to let you know I will be quoting your phrase "chorus of pings" in a talk I am giving about our upcoming exhibit on the sights and sounds of medicine. Best of luck with the recovery at home.
