There's no place like home *clicking heels*

Hi!  John and I got back from the hospital yesterday.  Gee, we were there for over three weeks.  When we left, I didn't think we would be staying that long.  John went through many tests, and they never did figure out what his "fevers of unknown origin" were from.  He had fevers of around 102 degrees for about 3 weeks in total.  That's something else.  Combined with the fevers in the past, the doctors are a little concerned, even though the fevers are not present for the time being.  John and I have to go back in about two weeks to check out the results of a few final tests, and then he may get another test.  Hopefully he will not have to stay in Hershey, or get checked into the hospital for awhile.

Because this isn't a good time.  We are in the process of moving.  I am packing up the apartment now, so that if we get called back to Hershey, we will be out of this apartment, by the due date.  I am actually working (packing, etc.) on July 4, LOL.  Doesn't matter anyway, I don't have anything else I want to do.  It is actually freeing to be out of Hope Lodge and doing something I want to do.  I REALLY appreciate it's service, but I was getting bored there and wanted to get on with my life.  There were so many tests, and we didn't get out.  The most we did was walk to the end of the driveway, LOL.

Maybe John and I will do something tonight, on the 4th of July.  They have some fireworks here rated best in the country.  I don't really feel like going out though.  Perhaps I will watch them on television.  Gee I am getting old, LOL! 

I just asked John what he wanted to add. Like how he was feeling.  He said yesterday he felt "disoriented".  "Being three weeks in Hershey and then suddenly two hours later we are back here.  And everything is different.  And adjusting to a new schedule and new things to do."  

He said this has happened to him before coming back after a long stay.

I feel sort of the same way.

But we are glad to be home.

I hope we stay home for a long while, normalcy would be great!

Love you all, Krissy :)

  2. So glad your back in your own surroundings.  Even if you are spending the day packing.  If I were nearby I'd come help you. Just have a good day and enjoy being out of the hospital setting.   Watching the fireworks is really the best way, it looks like I'm going to the fireworks today, but there's nothing wrong with sitting in your jammies with a soda and a bowl of popcorn watching them on TV.  Linda in hot western Washington

  4. I am glad that you two got to come back home. That in itself is a celebration. You are probably worn out and I am sure you are not old. Just the exausted body makes you feel that way. Hope you get everything all packed up soon and can move. Helen

  17. Krissy, Normalcy is what you BOTH need.  Oh, I will pray you can have more normalcy in your lives.   I am happy to hear you are home.  I WISH they had more definite answers on dear John's fever, though.  You guys are tough though and have learned to roll with what life deals you.  I dunno how you do it so well.  You are awesome.  I can't wait for you to get in your new apt.  Krssy, as soon as you have regualar access to a computer IM me.  We need to talk, girlfriend.  I have missed you a lot.  Love to both of you,  Happy 4th. Merry

  28. Praying all will go well with the tests and the move, dearhearts.  I can see how disoriented would describe the major shifts from the holding pattern in one place to being home.
    loving you

    Goodness, Krissy, you have had so much on your plate plus a move.  I'm keeping you and John in my prayers.  I'm supposing no origin for a fever is far better than what could be.  LOL...I watched the fireworks on tv because I'm terrified of the booms.  I'm such a wuss.  Big Hugs  Chris

  40. I haven't checked in with you for a while, I had no idea you were back in Hershey.  I am sure it is disorienting to go back and forth, with such long hospital stays.  Hope they figure out what is causing the fevers.  Love, Jae

  41. Hi Michael,

    So you do not like dogs?  Is that what I remember reading on my Journal?  That's ok-I will still be your friend.
    We have something in common-- I really do not like fireworks,
    they hurt my sensitive ears.  I stay indoors in my bed when they go off.
    My family had a cat that used to love to wear sweater because he was old and liked the warmth.
    I hope your family is doing well-
    Your new canine friend ,
    Julius

    I hope they find out what is wrong with John and treat it properly.  My prayers are with you.  

    Thanks for the comment you left in my journal.  Been working much lately and tending to my sister who had radical cancer surgery.  I have not been in the journals lately.  

    Yes, those are palm trees of south west Florida.
