I cannot thank you all enough for all the kindness sent my way. It has meant the world to me. I don’t yet have the strength to respond to all the lovely comments and prayers sent to me. I had a set back a couple of days ago. I have a “pic line” installed in my arm through which I receive IV antibiotics twice daily from a nurse who comes to my home. I developed a blood clot in that line and had some complications because of it.
I am NOT having any fun. However, I am happy. If I had been only a couple of days later in getting help I might not have survived. So from that perspective I have no complaints. My energy level is very low and I have quite a bit of dizziness….and pain. I must be on the mend because all I can think about is getting back to work. For a few days there I couldn’t see past my pain so that my friends is progress!!!
I can also share with you that while I am mildly ashamed to admit it I do watch Grey’s Anatomy. While spending so much time in the hospital I thought I would watch to see if there was any of that sort of “behavior” going on to help pass the time. When I saw nothing of interest asked about it. Long story short the nurses all gathered in my room to share with me the tales of wild times in closets and wild times from long ago. The stories were full of “bad behavior” and fun to listen to while I was trapped like a monkey in a cage.
Then I started watching carefully the doctors as they came and went….they were all about 100 years old so it was easy to see why the wild times had ended (giggle). Please excuse the silly nature of my thoughts….I have been so bored and trapped in a hospital bed not getting enough sleep. The minute they see you sleeping they wake you right up to take your blood pressure or hang another bag of antibiotics…..or empty the garbage at 3am.
I’m at home now getting my IV meds in my own bed. That’s much better but I am still not sleeping. My patience for all of this is just about over. I fear I may forget how to cook!!!! I need to feel some dough and soon!!!!! I have decided to use my sheer will to get over all of this in the next few days….I never fail when I put my mind to something so….. I will see you back in my kitchen shortly. Because I said so….ok, if I don’t make it I might go mad. I have done all the crying I plan to do.
I warn you…when I get back I will hit my kitchen HARD. I have a long list and can’t wait to get to it. Have a great weekend!
