Friends - Coworkers and Family

Grant me still a friend in my retreat, Whom I may whisper, Solitude is sweet - william cowper

How is it that I am the luckiest of women? I am so blessed and the universe sends me the tings and puts me in the places I need to be. Even in the confinement I have had to endure ( and endure some more) my Co-workers sent me the most lovley of bouquets - My family has been at my beck and call and My friends Have come from all over to lend support in everyway that is possible...... I am ever so grateful for all that I have and hold dear.

I am back at work for partial days probably until the holidays are done. the cellulitus is still not resolved fully and according to doctors may take months before I am well Enough!!

the good, the bad and the ugly

Yesterday I went to see the Infectious disease doc and the to follow up with a work comp doc. The news was mixed.

The good- The PICC line comes out tomorrow morning after a 10 day run on the Vancomycyn yes I am very happy about that this leads to the ugly truth but hang on a moment for that I will get there too. So that is a good thing in my book.

The bad- More antibiotics - What you say? yes I need to continue treatment another mixed bag of drugs for another 10 days this time a combination of two good antibiotics - but I can take them orally. but I need to remain off the leg still so feet elevated as much as I can and try to fight this off and get well. So I am going to try visualizing fighting white knight in my leg ( white good cells) and they will win and next week I hope to be fit for work !! it still a wait and see as of yesterday.

The ugly- the truth is I can't wait for the PICC line to come out so I can shower on a daily basis LOL with the way it is stuck in my arm a shower was less than desirable or manageable more than a couple of times. my routine was highly disturbed. Yes I will be resuming my daily ( or most daily) habit commencing tomorrow afternoon.
