Update Post Reply with Quote Edit/Delete Post Report Post to a Moderator        IP Information Go to the top of this page

At this time three weeks ago I was in the ICU of my local hospital.

Earlier that morning, Shawna, the lady who helps me get up in the mornings, found me feverish and drenched in sweat. I was in serious pain and had a little trouble speaking. She called for an ambulance and rushed me to the emergency room, afraid I might have had a mini-stroke.

Thankfully, I didn't have a stroke. However, the wounds I've been dealing with for the past few years have gone septic.

Nobody was talking amputation (WHEW!) But I spent a week trying to break a 102F fever and undergoing intense MRSA treatments.

And it looks like I'll be spending another 4-6 weeks getting IV antibiotics in a nursing home.

As my strength quickly wanes, I want to thank those who dropped a line to see if I'm okay.

Also, could a couple of you take care of the Bradbury's Jars until I've recovered?

Oh, yuck. MRSA is horrible. Wishing you a speedy recovery.

Hoping for a speedy recovery for you EW. Hugs.

I can possibly take care of this week's Bradbury's Jar prompt, as well as next week's one which was my turn anyway.

Don't want to step on anyone else's toes though, so if anyone has already adopted the date for this week (2nd June) they should let me know.

Get well soon, EW. Giveflowers

I have June 2nd, and I could possibly do the 16th if you could take the week after that (23rd) .... unless they're taken of course.

I can take care of the 23rd if no one has been allocated that one.

I wish the best, EW. Keep a positive outlook. Think of something you want to do after you're well again.

Thanks, gang. I can't tell you how much I appreciate all the warm wishes.

Also, nobody else is scheduled to take Bradbury's Jar. Thanks for taking care of it.

I got a nice surprise this afternoon: I was able to lift my leg enough to slide a standard-sized pillow under it!

Ever since I was in the ICU, my leg was very weak. For about a month I couldn't lift it at all. Then I was doing great to raise it an inch. And today, suddenly, I lifted my leg as an aide was about to put a pillow under my knee -- no strain or pain! I couldn't believe it! Eek4

Now I need a couple of wounds to heal enough so I can start sitting up on my own....
