I'm Home......again

But I think this time will take.

I got home late yesterday.  And have been home now for 24 hours.

And I'm no longer in a drug induced stupor, although I did take a pain med prior to the Physical therapist coming and couldn't put a string of words together.  But I was very funny.

I think I turned the corner today.  I felt like I was going to die on Sunday, but by Monday I was quite aware of being alive.  Today I think I will live.

The pain from the cellulitis in quite intense, but it is distinctly different from the surgery.  The surgery is fine and progressing quite well in spite of the fact that my leg was swollen twice it size and would not move or bend.  And the conundrum is that the knee people want me to move it and walk on it, the infectious disease people want me to stay still and keep it elevated.

I have to make both of them happy.

But, yes, I am better.  I have an appt with the infectious disease doc tomorrow, Dr. Gertie palawalwgistanahian.  Yep. Dr. Gertie!


  1. Just take care of you. I hope Carrie & Frank are giving you the attention you deserve. I know the dogs are!

  2. Sounds like you are moving in the right direction to healing now. Take care!

  3. Omg! I'm sorry you are going through this. I don't know what cellulitis is but it sounds bad and scary. Sending you healing thoughts and prayers .


I love to hear from friends! Thanks for leaving a message!
