7 - 10 days

Happy Cinco de Mayo!  I hope everyone has a good day today, and a good weekend.  I wanted to correct a mistake I noticed I made.  I said John would be in the hospital 7 - 10 weeks.  I meant days.  I hope it won't be any longer than 7 - 10 days.  Sorry for the scare.

Yesterday was a Red Letter Day for John.  He walked the hall for the first time in a week.  He also sat up in a chair three times for ten minutes at a stretch.  His abdomen still hurts him a lot, though.  The doctors came in today and told him the test results have not come back yet.

The nurse that is taking care of John's PICC line told John that he was allowed to shower.  She proceeded to tell him how he was supposed to do it.  He was supposed to take his arm and stick it in a bag that the newspaper comes in in the morning.  Then he is supposed to tape it up at the end of the bag.  Then he is supposed to stick his arm straight out of the shower stall while he showers, LOLOLOL.  She didn't tell him if he should sing, LOL. 

Well, I gotta run.  I have to finish my laundry, go shower (sans the newspaper bag), and catch the shuttle to the hospital to go see John.  I am only going in so late this morning because I wanted to do my laundry this morning and you can't use the laundry machines here at Hope Lodge until 8 am.  Staff is concerned you might wake someone up.  So now that my laundry is almost done I must scoot.

Love you all, Krissy :)

  6. That is great that you meant 7 to 10 days as weeks would have been another situation.     Thank you for writing me that John enjoy's reading Astronomy magazines.    Most of the time I forget that we are living in a universe with so much to think about concerning our place in it.   mark

  13. Hi Krissy!

    You sound a little perkier, does that mean you are getting a little more rest? or just getting used to it?  I'm sorry John is having more problems.  I hope I don't sound like a know-it-all, but Drs. don't tell you this.  You have good bacteria that grows in your GI tract..that needs to be there.  When you take antibiotics they kill bacteria...all bacteria good and bad.  If the good bacteria is killed you have pain.  Will they let John eat yogurt? If so get him some that says "with live cultures" in it. Or some L. Salivarious capsules. They always tell me not to take it, or antioxidants when I'm on antibiotics (or other stuff) but I do anyway. I don't tell them and they can't tell a difference and I have less stomach pain. That's just what I do, my opinion, and I know everyone has one of them. LOL

    You guys are in my prayers!

  14. Hi Krissy,

    You do sound really upbeat, things must be going well. I`m so pleased to hear that John is a little better though it must be hard to shower like that!  Take care and best wishes to John. :o)
