Hello Rosemary, thanks for the welcoming message. Yes, we are finally home after spending 3 months in Jacksonville. Adjusting to the "new normal" will take some getting used to, but I think we are coping well. As for many people in this group, preparing food can sometimes be a challenge as we are learning the dos and don'ts of food preparation. We have not been out to eat yet, and I am very careful about what I fix at home. We are also very aware of the environment and its pollutants.
As we said in a previous post, we enjoy reading the posts and participating in this community.

@genocurt,
Being home IS wonderful! We were away from home at Mayo Rochester for 3 months. There is really no reason to go anywhere at all, except for labs, and those are so-o-o tiring in the beginning, aren't they? As a lung recipient, your husband probably wears a mask, which I didn't have to do.
Are you comfortable to run errands and leave him alone?
I recommend naps as required. We scheduled noon – 3:00 as daily quiet times.
Here is feature that I am especially proud of. I think can see that many of us share how we have adjusted to being at home.

@genocurt, How are you and your husband getting along now that you are back at home? Are you getting adjusted to your new normal? Has this been an easier or harder adjustment than you had expected?
