Hi! We are home and it is glorious! To be in our own bed, to see our kitty, to eat our own food, LOL. But I am afraid I overdid it. I have had to do everything without the nurses in the hospital. There will be a homehealthcare nurse, but she doesn't come till tomorrow. And she won't be doing much anyway. So I have had to do just about everything myself. So I have had a hard time keeping up with the pace. What I did was pull the muscles in my legs. Now they are so stiff that they are spasming. So I am off to the ER to get a muscle relaxant or something. Perhaps I am a baby, but they are hurting so severely, and keep starting to painfully go into charlie horses. I can't go into charlie horses tonight. I can't really bare that. I have done that before and that's very painful.
I also have cellulitis in my legs. They are so swollen and red. They are extremely large. Like giant stuffed sausages, LOL. My feet are that way too! I got the cellulitis in Hershey. I had to go to the ER when I was in Hershey. They wanted me to get an appointment at my family doctor when I got back home. I called today and they told me to come in next Tuesday. I can't wait that long. I am going to the ER tonight so I can be seen for that also.
I will write more when I get back. I want to give you some happy news about how great it is to be back home! It really is great! Even though I am tired, I praise God we are here. It has been such a blessing for John and I to be home. John is really flourishing at home. He is doing so well. By the way, John has been able to be OFF dialysis! I will tell you more about that later. He is a real fighter. He is still getting blood about every five days, but maybe that will end soon. Who knows. He will be getting blood tomorrow morning. Probably two units (bags). He will get it at our local hospital. Okay, I must go. A taxi is going to take us to the local Emergency Room (ER).
Love you all lots, and sorry if I have been so busy that I have not been able to post sooner, or thank those who have written or sent us anything. My apologies. I love you all. So does John.
