Hey journal friends! We got home from Hershey Medical Center last night but I was so exhausted I couldn't do an entry. I've finally caught up on my sleep so here I am.
Well, as you can tell, John was discharged from the hospital pretty quickly, by the decision of Dr. E. When I first heard John was going to go, I was kind of upset and John and I were considering whether or not to phone Dr. Claxton. Next thing you know the Physician's Assistant came in the room and said Dr. Claxton had been spoken to (I am guessing yesterday's doctor had arranged this - the doctor who was trying to get John the tests!). The P.A. said that Dr. Claxton wanted John to take a new medicine. It is a very strong medication that acts against all kinds of fungi, especially mold. I think Dr. Claxton was worried that John might have fungal pneumonia as John's pneumonia has been hanging on for so long and his pain level is 8 without the pain meds. And still pretty high with the pain meds. So anyway, Dr. Claxton gave John about 4 scripts for different meds. And gave John an appointment for a CT scan and a check up with him on this coming Monday. This made me very happy and I was comfortable with John leaving the hospital at this point. So all is well. If Dr. Claxton wants him back in the hospital on Monday, he will put him back in, but I am hoping John will be able to be treated at home. But at least he will get a thorough check up.
So last night on the trip home from the hospital, when we got two towns over, I looked up, and I noticed the town was all decorated for Christmas! Gee, they start even earlier than me! I am not talking about individual houses, but the actual town. Here in PA the whole towns get decorated, by the local county governments I think. Or maybe townships, I am not sure how they do it exactly. Anyway, when I lived in VA, we never did anything like that. So John and I are looking around at the pretty Christmas decorations. Each pole along the road is decked out in a wreath with a bigred bow, LOL. And we get out and I notice it is snowing, LOL! Crazy. I am thinking, but it is not even Thanksgiving! And as we got into our hometown, I noticed it was also decorated for Christmas downtown! Big silver and blue snowflakes that sparkle were attached to the poles. They were so pretty!
Okay, now that I am in the holiday mood, I better get off here and do some holiday things, LOL. Oh yes, I better think of Thanksgiving first, I still have a little shopping to do, LOL.
Love you all, Krissy :)
