John may get discharged today!

Hi!  I wanted to do a quick entry to let you all know that John is doing much better.  If he had no fever during the night, they are discharing him today.  That is providing they didn't find anything positive in his cultures that needs to be treated.

His fevers are finally starting to dissipate.  He is going to be sent home on an oral antibiotic, so he will no long need IV antibiotics.  He has been on two IV antibiotics in the hospital - Vancomycin and Cefepime. 

I feel bad that I even mentioned this hospitalization to you all as it did not turn out to be something serious.  I worried you after good news. 

I was concerned when he was first hospitalized, but am only relieved now. 

Hopefully John will be discharged tonight.  Just in time for the biggest snowstorm of the year!  Or what could be the biggest snow storm of the past twenty years, they say!  I hope it isn't that huge.  And I hope it doesn't last too long.  We should be stuck at Hope Lodge for a few days when John gets out of the hospital, because his release about coincides with when it is supposed too start snowing.  I am thankful that we have a safe place to stay.

So I will get back on tonight and let you know if he was discharged.

I also want to get back on today or tomorrow and write a little more on narcolepsy and answer a few of you all's questions.  

But for now I have to run over to the hospital to see what the doctors are saying about John. 

Okay, love you all, Krissy :)

    ((((((((((((((((HUGSTOYOUBOTH))))))))))))))))))I am glad everything is ok with John.I am still praying for Him and you both.Yeah,we are in fro some bad weather also,I cant belive it thoe,because it is Spring.I guess when we got all that nice weather during the winter time,were getting it a nce weekend.

  2. Dear Krissy, this is wonderful news.  So glad everything is going well for John.  I cannot believe your weather.  We have the opposite here.  Supposed to hit 79 degrees today and it is only April!!!  I hope John is safely home before the snowstorm hits. God bless you both.

  3. I do hope John is released and you make it home before the snow hits. Can you believe this crazy weather? I'm going to the grocery store today and picking up somethings just in case. Take care and will look forward to hearing from you again about John. ((((((((((hugs)))))))))))

  4. I hope your are on your way home - I'll be praying for a safe trip.  Snow in April what a blast !  Take good care !  'On Ya' - ma

  5. I am so happy to read that John may be going home today.  I can't believe we are expecting snow like this in April.  We are just going to hang around the house and veg out.  Hugs, Lu

  6. Yes, you should have posted about John being in the hospital. That way many prayere could be sent up for him. That could be the reason things didn't get really serious. Hope it doesn't snow as much as they are predicting. Helen

  7. I do pray they let John go, and I hope you don't get stuck in the snow, but you do have a nice place to stay if it happens...My best to you both.


  8. Glad things are starting to look up!


  9. Good news! Tammy

  10. Krissy, I am glad John is doing better.  That is good news.  IMHO, there is nothing wrong with letting your online friends know about a hospitalization, even if it turns out to be short or have a good outcome.  With fevers and John's health history there is never a way to know how serious the problem is at first, so I'd like to know when trouble happens.  Prayers continue for both of you.  I am looking forward to hearing more about the narcolepsy.
    loving you

  11. So glad John is doing better.... and you did not worry us for no reason, that is keeping us informed so we can be there for you and just maybe all the prayers helped send the fevers away, lol...
    and what is with this weather...
    Be Safe!!
    Linda :)

  12. Krissy, don't ever worry or feel bad about telling us anything about you or John just because it didn't turn out serious, we all care about you both and you are in our special prayers and in our heart. We want to be there with you for the minor, good, whatever because we all care....that is what friends do for each other. Arlene (AJ)

  13. Good to hear that John may get home today - looking forward to your update. Snowstorm? It's up to 25C / 77F in the UK today. Don't hesitate to tell us what John's condition is - any change is cause of concern, small or large. Drive safely.

  20. Oh Krissy, I am thrilled to hear that John won't have to stay there long.  And never feel bad about talking to us, to  me anyway.  That is what friends are for!

    We just got 6-8 inches of  snow Wed. and Thursday.  Dave was unable to go out of town on business.  It was a mess!  I had to shovel half the back yard for the dogs to wee & uh you know.

    Let me know when you get safely home.  Love you both!  merry1621

  21. I am thrilled with the good news about John. Please do keep posting so we can pray, please don't feel that you can't/shouldn't share because you might upset us we are here to support you both. I am glad you have a safe place to stay in the snow storm.
