They discharged me from the hospital last night with a bag of syringes and yet more liquid food.  A friend joined me in hospital transport to help me settle back at home.  Feeling a bit war-wounded but confident that the energy will return.  Taking it easy for a few days while getting used to feeding myself in this new way.  Looking forward to a few days of quiet … and maybe thinking about music …
