Finally Got a Tentative Discharge Date from San Francisco Nursing Center

Those of you who read this blog know I have been a patient at the San Francisco Nursing Center for nearly three months. Back in September I suffered a lower leg infection on my right leg near the ankle which required 4 surgeries and almost 3 months of nursing care in order to heal properly.

I'm beginning to see a light at the end of this tunnel. In a visit last week my podiatrist said I could begin walking again and go home on November 23rd. On that day, she is going to remove the staples they used to hold a skin graft in place and I'll be formally discharged from her care and from the SFNC.

I can't wait to be discharged so I can enjoy lazy Sundays at home again. It's great to be able to drink coffee, read the newspaper and relax without any pressure from people, places or things.

The good new is I didn't waste my time while being a patient here at the SFNC. I wrote blog posts on this Trying to Change My Life blog and on other blogs and I've improved my writing. I know I have a lot of work to do to be a better writer, but I'm willing to put in the work.
