LUT IS HOME

We are both extremely happy. I was skipping around in the hallways at the nursing facility as I gathered his stuff to get it into the car.

We have a week's worth of his general medications, but only a couple of days of pain meds. I meant to call his new primary care physician about that but forgot. Dangit. Hopefully I can get it taken care of tomorrow.

I got him home a little after ten. His physical therapists had told me that he could in fact get in and out of our current bed, so I hadn't replaced the bed yet. He confirmed this by getting up and down a few times. Then we spent some time cuddling because it has been SO LONG since we got any proper cuddling. ♥

Afterwards, I left him to rest while I went to the nearest Microsoft Store, which is a half-hour away. The peripherals for the Surface 3 arrived on Tuesday. I am happy with the case and keyboard, but the stylus I got is terrible. I decided I wanted to test some in person, rather than ordering and returning one after another from Amazon. I couldn't find anywhere close that had floor models of styluses: hence, pilgrimage to MS Store. They only had one stylus, which was of course super-fancy and over three times the cost of the one I'd gotten from Amazon. On the other hand, I didn't actively hate the feel of it against the screen. Like the tactile sense of using plastic stylus on glass screen was extremely unpleasant. The MS pen has a softer nib and it feels much nicer. So I went ahead and bought it. At the store! Which I would have done even if it had been cheaper at Amazon, because I am not the sort of monster who will test things in a store so I can buy them only. But this was a weird case where it was cheaper in person. Amazon, for some reason, is charging $14 more for it than the retail price.

I still have to return the other stylus to Amazon, and a pair of loafers that I ordered that doesn't fit Lut.

*goes to Amazon and gets the electronic part of the return taken care of now*

I am spending so much more money at Amazon lately, but Amazon Prime is so nice. -_- On balance, Amazon Prime makes it actually easier to return items than things bought in person. I do have to print the label, which is annoying, but even with boxes that have to be dropped off and can't just be shoved in a mailbox, the dropoff locations for USPS and UPS are closer than most stores. And I don't have to wait at a customer service counter. OTOH, I am much more likely to buy the wrong thing online where I can't try it than I am in person, so there's that.

Anyway, since I was relatively close to the nice Indian place on the other side of town, I went there for lunch. Why is naan so good. I don't even know. It's a buffet, and I had skipped breakfast because I was figuring on going there today. I have now also skipped dinner because I am still so full. SO FULL. The buffet includes bottomless mango lassi and also bottomless chai because OF COURSE IT DOES.

I saw them packing a to-go order. I am getting food to-go next time because buffet is such a bad idea for me.

They sent me home with a cup of chai and the remaining naan.

After that, I stopped by a Chinese place to get to-go for Lut/ Lut got up to eat, then went back to bed. He is still spending most of his time asleep or resting, but when he's awake he is alert and lucid. So this is far from optimal but oh man, it has been SO MUCH worse. And it is just so nice to have him be home and me be home and we can be at home and comfortable together. We keep saying it to each other. "You're home!" "I'm home!" We are so happy, y'all.

I took a nap in the afternoon because SO FULL. Also, this is the first time since Lut went to the hospital on June 30 that I have been home in the afternoon to nap. Ahhh, home. z_z

Later, I put away Lut's stuff that we brought home from the nursing facility, because I am temporarily possessed by the Spirit of Adulthood and don't want to leave things sitting around in bags for months like I normally do. My house is presently kind of almost tidy? I mean not really but SORT OF? And I want to keep it that way.

And cuddled Lut some more.

Because Lut is home.
