Still at home....

I didn't go back to work today. I told them last week the surgeon said it would be a week or two before I can go back but I guess he doesn't know about my super healing powers (LOL). I am getting a little stir crazy but I am tired. I am having some reaction to the antibiotic (Avelox), I think they are going to call in something else. I sure hope so. First I called my family doctor (Dr. Russ) but he isn't going to be in the office for 6 weeks because his 6 month old son was killed in a car accident. I can't even imagine. It just happened last week (the same day he prescribed the meds for my barfing). The lady at his office said others would be covering his shift but not until I called the surgeon and his office is supposed to get back to me. I am an hour past due to take the stuff but if they are going to put me on something else I'd rather not take today's dose. It really is nasty stuff.

Oh, and FYI, I have now lost 10 lbs. Still 7 up but I am sure that should be dropping off soon. You'd think I should have lost 17 lbs through all this. I still really can't eat much of anything. Watermelon - that is about it. I did eat cereal this morning and it tasted really funny.

Some people from our church are bringing us meals over. Isn't that nice. I told them it really isn't necessary - I feel silly accepting a meal for just the three of us and really I feel fine. So, I told the lady organizing it not to bother but she acted like she didn't hear me. LOL....she is very sweet.

NONONONOOOOOOO, don't turn the food away, send it to me!! Glad you are feeling better. I talked to your dad this morning, your mom has gone to Knox. to the dr. (you probably already know all that, I'm sure you have talked today).
BTW, why didn't you send Jake to me....just a thought. (hope that didn't sound ugly, didn't mean it that way, but he is really good looking, plus a good cook!!).

I agree with your Aunt D, if you have people in your life that will help, let them as not everyone does. If I lived closer I would be happy to make you something to eat. It sounds like you should rest while you can. Gail

Isn't nice when people are doing something nice for you because they want to, not because they have to!
