Well the past week has been a busy one that's for sure!
Tuesday night we found out that I was going in to surgery the next day (Wednesday). I have been recovering since then and it really knocked me off my feet.
Things around the house have been hectic and I am scheduled to get my port placed this Wednesday. We are hopeful that things will be on the upswing from here on out. I have noticed improvements in my health- little things here and there. Although I took a complete crash in the night last night and developed a fever today.
So we're praying the fever and flu-like symptoms are just a passing thing and my lungs that have been considerably weaker will be strengthened before I go through the more minor surgery on Wednesday. It is quite the ordeal but I am confident in the doctors that are treating me.
I am sure there are many things I have missed because I am quite tired but- the surgery was a major this week and we continue to hope that things are better soon...
Chuck is my spot-light person of the day... He is an IV therapist at Arnot and he has been very helpful along my journey. Today he put in my IV and was very quick which was impressive considering the fact that many nurses complain about how bad of a stick I am. He has treated me very nice and has been patient and shown his love for people through his work. He is as many say the "king" of IV therapy and although he's the best in the hospital he does not hold an ego and listens carefully to the people he works with. I couldn't ask for a better IV therapist and I am thankful that he shows his compassion... It's rare to find a person who works with his heart at the hospital and who takes time out of his day to understand the case.
Healthy days ahead!
