Crazy Hospital Happenings

You know it’s finally time to get out of here when the new admittee across the hall is not only ill, but suffering from some sort of dementia that is causing him to repeatedly yell “help!! help!! get out of my house!!” Which means the rest of us get late meds and short shrift as the poor overworked nurses have to deal with the crazy person they didn’t even get warned about.

Thankfully, it looks like discharge date might be sometime Wednesday.  We’ve got a trial-period live-in help, a pain regimen that is working CLOSE to what we want and may very likely work better once it’s more under my control and not dementia-distracted nurse control, and I’m working on my PT to rebuild my muscular system to help protect my poor hole-riddled skeletal system.

I’m sure you’re all anticipating the story of the saga of how I switched from a near-”terminal” cancer patient to one who is riding out Wednesday with a good chance of years’ more survival, and I think writing about it in bits and pieces will be good for me and my continued healing.  Along those lines, please any of you feel free to ask questions about particular things you’re interesting in hearing more about from the last two months, it will help me get some focus since, my goodness, there’s so very much to write about.

    :: sniffle ::

    emotional reactions
    the specifics of the cancer and how it’s being treated
    physical reactions
    how your family dealt with it

    that’s all I can think of right now.

    Yay! It definitely sounds like time to go home. Please let me know if you need anything and when you might wish for a visit.

    Hugs! (and virtual head rubs!)
