I Am Home
I arrived home last night. They discharged me at about 7pm. The doc wanted me out as the ER was being bombarded with flu patients and he didn't want me getting the flu or anything else on top of what I already have. My sats are hovering around 94% which isn't bad, but not as good as I usually am. I have my picc line in so I can infuse my iv antibiotics at home. I am on 2 iv's and one inhaled, and one oral. My cultures aren't back yet so they really don't know what is going on in there. It is something I haven't had before, this one is a real butt kicker. I feel terrible. I am still running fevers periodically. When we arrived home last night we had no electricity so had to start my iv's by flashlight until Brett got the generator up and running at mom's. Thank goodness because at this point I can't live without my breathing treatments. The power just came on tonight, at 7pm. I have been instructed by my doctor not to go back into our camper. He suspects I have gotten sick from staying there. So now even more pressure on Brett to get us into the house. Well thanks everyone for all your thoughts and prayers, I am very tired and am gonna go for now.
