I’m back in the saddle and ready to ride.
Let me be serious and say thank you for all of the thoughts, prayers, Power of the Paw, and kind words over the past few days. My friends in Blogville and BlogPaws® along with the rest of you made all of the difference in my world. How do I know?
Over the weekend, I began running a fever with chills, nausea, and a migraine. It progressively got worse. Monday morning, my doctor felt the hospital was a great place for me to call home for the next few days. Might be appendicitis, might not, need tests. To be honest, the days are rather fuzzy with sleep, IVs, a stomach scan and more sleep. There was also an amazing staff at the hospital along with my doctor that took great care of me. The scan showed the problem was my kidney. They were able to treat it quickly and effectively. No surgery required, thank you very much!
Here’s the thing; my first grandchild has been due “any day now.” I cannot express to you how much I did not want to be in that hospital room strapped to an IV when that day arrived. It seems through the fog that I mentioned it to everyone that took my vital signs. That fog finally lifted Tuesday afternoon and I suddenly felt human again.
I was going to be released during the day on Wednesday. My son and daughter-in-law called early Wednesday morning to say, “It is go time!” In my rather vast experience of being a patient, there is one thing that I know, being discharged is a hurry up and wait process. This was completely different. My nurse along with others went above and beyond the call of duty to have me released in record time. I was good to go before Kelly and Michael hit the airwaves! This allowed me the biggest miracle of all; to be at the hospital in the afternoon for the birth of our very first grandchild,
♥ She is simply perfect in every way.♥
