I was able to talk our neurosurgeon into letting us out today despite Marissa's less-than-perfect demeanor.  Her MRI looked great, her KUB looked pretty darn good, chest x-ray was clear, labs were normal.  Seeing as there was no real obvious physical reason for her extreme irritability, I proposed that it was just plain and simple her being sick and tired of being there.  He felt it would be reasonable to keep her another day to just see how things went, but I made the argument that I really felt I could be a better judge of how things were going if I could get her back in her own, comfortable environment.  So, off we went and it feels SO GOOD to be home!!   I'm happy to report that while Marissa is still irritable, it has tapered significantly and she is eating and drinking much better at home!  Hopefully we're here to stay for a good long while.

Oh, on a side note, please stop back tomorrow for a very important announcement!
