What a Week
So I've been out of commission for a week. Really out of commission. Last Tuesday, May 26th, I woke up not feeling too well. I had stomach and abdominal pains. As the morning progressed I began to feel severely chilled and light-headed. I put my son on the bus for school and called my husband to come home. I ended up in the ER, then was transferred and admitted to my original surgical hospital with a post-surgical abdominal infection.
The last week has been spent in the hospital -fighting the infection, having lots of blood drawn, pushing my I.V. stand around the halls and trying to eat the hospital food. The staff was wonderful, and really helped to make it bearable.
I finally came home yesterday. I am tired and hooked up to funky drainage stuff -ick!, but oh so glad to be home again!
