Day 9

HGB 9.5
WBC 1160 up 1000
PLT 65

Feeling a bit tired today but seem to be doing much better. I'm able to keep fluids down with very little pain. They are working me towards pills and not IV's and they do think Tuesday is the day. Met with the nutritionist today and she said it will be slow go for a while with foods until my intestinal track calms down a bit. Keith, my brother, The MAN is going to take they day off on Tuesday and the game plan is when I'm discharged to call my sister and Mom to start heading north. He will drive 3 hours and they will drive 3 hours to meet me. So, I should be home Tuesday afternoon~YAHOO! It's going to take me a couple of weeks to get back on my feet. This has taken a lot out of me. My one fat roll on my stomach is all but gone and when I slip my pants on, they fall off. I feel good about the weight loss, I just don't want to lose too much. Chaplin came in today and prayed with me. She could understand my emotional (Homesick) status but we prayed it up to God and all is good!

wow that all seems like pretty good news to me, white blood count is doing great too. You are smart to know that it is going to take you a while to get back on your feet, take your time, pray lots and feel better as soon as it is right for your body
