I'm Here. Just Don't Aske Me Where "Here" is.

Still in hospital, same room since admitted on Oct. 1.

Nightmares do not only happen at night.  When the pain strikes it's a real screamer. When the fevers take hold (usually 2 or 3 times daily) I cannot move at all. Can't hold up my own weight. I am in a magic bed that has a massage mechanism to prevent bed sores.. thrilling, that.  Since I am prone to fall due to weakness,  the bed can also be a tattletail. An alarm will sound if I try to get out of bed without assistance. I feel pretty safe when I feel anything at all.

Fevers spiking to 103.5 have left me totally drained. I cannot go home while they're happening.

Probably unable to go home at all to a second-story apartment. I will need at least a walker, possibly a wheelchair.

There are rumors of an assisted living option, but the specialists don't believe that will be enough.

One visitor only since arrival.  That's all I can stand.  Good friend.

Due to the arrogance and stupidity of a new physician, I almost bought the farm the other night. For the next 2 days I wish I had.

And so it goes.


  1. you are in my thoughts, dear one. and you are in the thoughts of many other people too; you are loved! thank you for posting today.

  2. Are you up for another visitor, or is it too taxing?

  3. So glad to see your post today. You are in my thoughts and prayers. Sorry to hear the news, just keep your smile...it's such a nice one it will get you through. More furry forehead kisses...

  4. I'm sorry to hear all you're going thru, but its good to hear from you. I hope there won't be anymore screw ups with your care (there had better not be). You are in my thoughts - please rest and regain your strength.

    Take care my friend,

  5. I'm visiting everyday in my thoughts and even on those days the nurse nods no I'm in the hallway or just down the hall!

  6. : - ( No words can be adequate, C. Sending you as much consoling thought as I can muster, and will keep repeating it. May it help alleviate your troubles, even if it's only a very little bit.. Comforts and hugs to you. XXX.
