I took a turn the worse last night, around 11:30pm, I spiked a fever. Troops rushed in, blood cultures and all and woke Scott out of his sound sleep. After everyone left, I obviously could not go back to sleep because I knew there was no way in hell they were going to let me go home. My blood counts weren’t the only factors anymore. I am on quite the cocktail of pills here because of how I take care of myself at home. The vitamins and minerals that I put into my body every day from my diet and juicing have kept my body a thriving environment. Since I have been in this joint the whole week, my body is severely depleted of everything and messed with my alkaline and Ph levels that they are throwing pills down my throat like I’ve never seen before. Keep in mind, I don’t even take supplements at home, there has never been a need because I am on top of it. Sunrise comes and I get my morning check up and, here’s a big surprise….they find another complication!!

Off to radiology I go with my get up, mask and gloves.

I make it back to my room and get settled and my very patient (because I have just about had enough) doctor comes in and tells me that I have bacterial pneumonia and I am not going anywhere.

There are pros and cons with this new finding.
-I do not have a bacterial blood infection and it appears my port line is not infected.
-I am in the right place.
-I will have to live in a bubble for awhile when I do go home. No visitors, sterile, masks and bleach. My girlfriends are going to my house tomorrow to clean my house so it’s ready for when I come home 🙂

I have started my new meds for this lovely diagnosis and will see how I do. My ANC and white count are creeping up and if I stay in this direction, I could possiblyyyyyyy go home tomorrow 🙂

Keep checking for updates, never a dull moment!
