A Very Busy Morning!
I am thankful that I have a family. On Easter Sunday Quincy, Jen, Drew and Katie came to visit me. Drew and I played Farkel and he beat me 27,000 to 16,000! It amazes me how intelligent 6 year old children are these days. He can add all the numbers in his head and I had to add everything up the old fashioned way. He just laughs at me..... don't have to worry too much about him. The priest came in and gave me Holy Communion and Drew wanted to have a host too. I assumed it was because he wanted the body of Christ in his body....he said, no, he was just curious to see what it tastes like. LOL!
This morning was rather hectic to say the least. Woke up to the surgeon telling me that in 10 minutes he would be taking out the staples in my stomach and draining the fluid that's causing the infection. It wasn't as bad as I thought, because I've had multiple staph infections from being in hospitals, and in 2007, when my lung collapsed, there was a huge one on the top of my head. My son had to clean it out for me every night.
The next procedure was a picc line. That is when they put a permanent IV into your body, so all the antibiotics, pain meds, contrat for CT scans, chemo, or whatever you need can get into the body without poking each time with an IV.
The bummer is I can't leave the hospital yet, but I don't really feel like going anywhere , so it's all o.k. Stanford is a wonderful place to be and my room now looks like a botanical garden.
