i did not overdoit! honest!
i loved being at home with my hubby, mom, kitties, my own bed and food i liked...but the years of immuno-suppressants really took me for a loop. i have an infection (peritonitis scare) and am back at Emory on IV antibiotics. when i left wed, my wbc was 6...yesterday afternoon when i was readmitted it was 20, though mom says she thought the gal said 40? last night i could hardly move w/out being in horrible pain thru my whole abdomen. it took me 30min to get rolled out of bed to go potty and after i finally got up/down, i could only breathe very shallowly, so i woke hubby up and told him i thought i needed to go back.
hubby has come to stay the night w/ me last night and he brought the laptop and some milk w/ my precious instant breakfast and myoplex to stir in.
everything seemed just fine earlier in the week. i was stir crazy and beyond ready to go home on wed. i was told to leave the bandage over the drain wound for 2 days before removal. by thurs my stitches/staples were becoming inflamed and that afternoon i was feeling punky so i took my temp to see it was elevated. i decided to peek at the drain wound...and it was not pretty. mom took me to my family dr and i got some antibiotics but that night was the night i couldnt breathe after moving and decided i needed to come back.
i will try my hardest to not push for escape. i mean early discharge.
i am feeling better, enough to type this much, at least. i will still probably participate minimally until i am feeling much better. i'd rather have all my steps be forward with no slidebacks because i tried to go to fast.
I have the ability of single-minded determination and accurate project focu....Hey, look, a cat!
I'd much rather laugh.
