A little excitement to stir the otherwise monotonous tone around here. Although, not all good things, but all are certain on the path to the curative.
The doctors are concerned that I many have a secondary infection somewhere in my body which may be causing the recent fever spikes. So we’re going to a contrasted CT scan today – and I’m told I have much to look forward to with drinking the contrasting dye. They asked what I wanted to mix it with; of course, I asked for vodka, but the nurse said beer would probably cut the taste better. I think both are unlikely. I’m going to ask for champagne instead.
This will probably also address my sore tummy issue as well. More pronounced when I’m laying down, I’ve had these dull pains in my stomach which I thought might be me backed up or gassy. But it could also be a sign of infection so having the CT scan done today will be a good thing to get to the bottom of things. It could be as simple as just switching up the antibiotics I’m on.
Then, of course, it’s time to receive a little blood. Not unusual, this happens as my levels drop. So, many moving pieces. And there’s a part of me that, while still strong and resolved to kick this thing, I am tired of being in the hospital. It’s day 17 and I’ve just had. Enough interrupting my life – can I get back to my own life now, please? UGH! So bored. And getting the TV turned on hasn’t helped – now I just sit like mush, not that I have much attention span to do other things. < sigh >
Anyway – more to come later.
