    It's always great to hear another safely to *this* side. Sleep, sleep sleep! Nothing wrong with that. (Get a walk in each day between the sleeps too, it will help everything.)

    Yay Ann! You made it!
    I know how tired you are, but you'll be surprised how much better you feel now that you're home. Don't expect too much of yourself for a while - your job is to relax and heal.
