Day 35

16 September 94

Not much happened in the hospital this morning. X-Ray took almost an hour. I get a chest X-Ray on Fridays now as an outpaitent. My father sat in the familly room and gabed with all the wives while I was getting zapped and getting bloods drawn. All my levels look good, so the Docs said farewell and sent me on my way to Portland for the weekend. After giving me the hard nose about getting tired, staying away from people, bla, bla, bla.. Let me OUTA HERE!!!

Oh my god that was a long trip! 3.5 hours in a car with my dad is no picnic. He has bad eyes and I thought I was driving most of the time. All and all I was suprized my rear didn't hurt more. That was the longest ride in a car since I got out.

It feels GREAT to be back home!

Lora (wife) let me drive up to her fathers house where we will be staying. Called best friend (David Linn) and went over to his parents house after the rehersal dinner. Allmost all my friends were there. It's so wonderfull to see them all. I think I cried any time someone wasn't around. I was just so happy to home. We had a great time, good food, good friends, just great. We were all worn out by the end of the night.

Best day in a long time!
