Hi ya'll. It's been a little while since I've written. That's because almost all my time has been taken up taking care of John. He's been pretty sick lately. All weekend and since he has run fevers. So the home Critical Care nurse that comes in the morning called up Hershey (Dr. Claxton) and told him what was going on. Dr. Claxton said to bring John up on Monday. So John, my Dad and I went to Hershey on Monday. John, besides having a fever, also had chest pain and severe pains in his abdomen. And extreme exhaustion, trouble breathing, and a hard time even walking across the room. So Hershey did an EKG and took a chest X-Ray as well.
They were going to admit John to the hospital, but there were no beds available. So then they were going to put him in Hope Lodge, to keep him up there to keep an eye on him, but there were no beds available there either. So Mitzi, the nurse coordinator, called around the local hotels to try to find John and me a room to stay in, to no avail. There was a convention in town! So the doctor sent us back to State College and told us to come back on Thursday. So we are going back to Hershey tomorrow. Unless John feels so sick today that he doesn't make it till tomorrow. Then I am just going to call the ambulance and get over there today.
I am telling you all this because I don't know if they will admit John on Thursday or send him home. If they admit him, my entries should be sparser. I plan to try to continue to post via the hospital computers, but I probably won't be able to keep up on alerts as much. We shall see.
Well, I am tired now, so I must go, LOL. Please pray for John. He is surprised this is happening to him, as he sailed through the transplant. Now he is wondering why he is having all these complications. Pray for me also. I'm a little tired. Thanks! :)
Lots of love, Krissy
