I'm Home Again

I am home from the hospital - which is such a nice thing! I got released late Monday night and this week has just been overwhelming with nurse visits and doctor visits. I'm so tired!

I have several infections and so they sent me home with a picc line and I'm having to give myself push meds and IV's through the line. It's all a new experience! My youngest son has really helped me and he learned to do the IV's, too, just in case I'm too tired or unable to do everything myself. So far, I'm doing good with it and I always believe in taking personal responsibility for caring for myself as much as possible. I can't do a whole lot, so what I can do, I do. So far, I'll be doing this for two weeks but it really depends on what my blood work shows. 

I'm still on the wound vac and even though the wound is larger now because of the amount of dead tissue and infection the doctor had to remove, it looks better and healthier. I'm so very thankful that I got this surgery done as I truly wonder if this infection would have eventually just taken over my body and I would have had all kinds of horrible problems.

I don't have a lot of news other than health news right now. I haven't been up to doing much but read and study my Bible. However, I would rather study my Bible and read than anything else anyway so it's all good. I'm hoping this weekend I'll be able to catch up on my rest because I won't have to go anywhere or have any nursing visits. I haven't been able to sleep in since I've been home so I've been running on about 5-6 hours of sleep. Not enough, my friends! lol

I hope you have a wonderful weekend and happy Father's Day to all those dads out there!

Blessings - Julie
