I've survived through a truly horrible long weekend and am finally starting to feel human again. I had a great surgery, though I came out of anesthesia with a migraine, which I'm told is common, but didn't happen to me last time. I was recovering beautifully until Friday afternoon when I quickly developed a 103 fever which lasted a full 24 hours, combined with a hacking cough and stuffy head. I spent a lot of that time in the bathtub, until my neighbor downstairs came up and said my bathtub is leaking into her unit. Awesome. Saturday morning, our sweet family dog Rosie took a turn for the worst and my Dad flew home to help comfort my poor sister who was all alone. She had a really long, happy life and that is all I think about because it is so physically painful to cry I just can't do it.
Today, I'm weaning off the painkillers and spending a little more time out of bed (aka the Kleenex Graveyard). This week I will get more lab results and have a better idea of what comes next in my battle. Thank you, thank you, a million times thank you for all the notes, they made me smile during some really dark moments!
