I Want to Go Home…Right Now!

Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz said it best, ‘There’s no place like home’. 

At home, you know where everything is…unless someone moved it. 

You get to put your own sleep wear/pj’s

Your bed is there waiting for you

Everything feels comfortable because it’s home 

No more begin assaulted by the 3am blood draws–yes they need the bright light so they can see your veins, or the PICC nurses using the ultrasound machine looking for a ‘good’ vein

No more doctors and nurses asking you a thousand and one questions again and again

No more poking and pushing and ‘Take a deep breath, hold it please’; turn to the right, turn to the left; everything is looking good 

Yes, home is just a little ways away…you may have to go to rehab before going home

But it’s still there waiting for you…

‘There’s no place like home’
