Starting Over

Imagine being 12 months old but having a 42 year old brain; acting like a baby but being self-aware enough to know the militude (I made that up, it means "the opposite of magnitude") of your accomplishments.

I've spent the last 4 days being heartily congratulated for drinking, sitting up, peeing, moving my feet, walking, and having a bowel movement.

None of it feels belittling though. Every one of these actions feels like a very big deal to me!

Winding down for my last sleep in the hospital. It will be nice to be home but I will definitely miss this electronic bed.


  1. Robert Kraus also "Like" Kevin Watson's bowel movement.

  2. Congratulations on being sent home, Kevin. That's another big accomplishment. Thanks for sharing and keeping us posted.
    You can rent one of those electronic beds for home if you really want to!!! It would be cool to watch 3dD TV while moving up and down....that would make it 4D, right? Hope the rest of your recovery is smooth and speedy. With love from Denver and Moscow, Anna and the Kassner boys.

  3. It will be good to know you are back in the hood! LInda

  4. Good to hear you'll be heading home. Hopefully someone will protect you from that cat!
