Big News!

Well, my big news today is that I might get to go home tomorrow. It will depend on my blood counts, but they've been steadily increasing. Other criteria the doctor gave me is that I eat enough, and am able to take my meds by mouth (they've been giving me many of them through the IV because I've had trouble keeping them down).

I'm determined that I will do whatever it take to go home. I just need my body to cooperate and get those counts up high enough!

The thinking seems to be that if my counts are okay, I can do the things I'm doing in the hospital just as well (or better) at home. I know I'll eat better. The food here is atrocious. The nausea has abated, so I think I can keep my pills down. I just took 6 potassium tablets over a 30 minute period, and they haven't come back up.

My potassium has been low and they've had trouble getting it to come back up, because of the diarrhea.

Anyway, I'm excited and hopeful. I will be so disappointed if I don't get to go!

In other news, I had a very peaceful night last night. My room was filled with guardian angels sent by loving friends and family. My dreams were of bountiful feasts (I so need good food) and Christmas! Very sweet dreams. Thank you all for your prayers, your loving support and your angels!

Sharon, we have been praying for you. My daughter has been saying a rosary for you, last Sunday she felt the urge to pray even harder for you at Mass. I hope you do get to come home, the hospital is just a hard place to heal, isn't it.

Positive thoughts and prayers are being sent your way.
