Well, I’m excited. My sister in law Amy is not far from the hospital! It’s so exciting. I mean, not for Amy, but for me! Less imprtany, it is Steve Harvey Day! My parents are there as I type! I can’t wait to interview them later!
So, last night went like many before. Sleep is hard because of all the steroids. I took an ambien at 10:30, at about 1:00 fell asleep. Then when my nurse came in at 2:30 to hook me up to antibiotic, she gave me ativan and I slept a few more hours. Finally, I caved and asked for Zofran at like 5:00 am because I made the wise decision after a week of Cup of Noodles I decided to eat a PBJ and then French fries at 6:00 the night before. I asked Dr Burt to put a French fry restriction on my restriction list. He liked that and the fact that I was going for a healthy diet. Lol
I needed a pain pill and got that at about 8:30. So at about 10:00, I sent my parents to the hotel, my mom looked exhausted and needed to rest up for the big day! I tried to sleep… Didnt happen, but layed down for an hour. Got up, made my bed… Had my picc line wrapped for a shower (wish I had a cast cover or something… Has to be easier, but I don’t plan on having it much longer! Lol), got dressed, talked to the best housekeeper ever, disinfected my room, ate, did a bunch of laps, talked to friends in TX and here I am. Can you tell the steroids are getting to me. I just pray I don’t crash! I also have a good attitude I am adopting. THIS WILL BE MY LAST WEEKEND IN CHICAGO! This is the goal I am setting for myself! This is what I want to achieve and through determination, prayer and NO INFECTION! So please pray for that as well. My wbc are officially too low to count, so it’s a waitin game to get to 1 and get out of here! I have an average of a week for this! I CAN DO IT! Nuetropen shots also start tomorrow. They will help too!
PS – I am going to try and do an interview with the celebrities later. Stay tuned! Lol
