I hope everyone is having a nice weekend. Just wanted to give a quick update and let you all know that I’m out of the hospital and back home.
It’s been a tough couple of months, and to be honest, I’m getting really tired of this. I want my life back. I want my body back. I want this to be over…and yet, as rough as this has been, I realize how much worse it could be, and how fortunate I am in so many regards. It’s a very strange place that I’m in mentally and emotionally. I’m just trying to focus on whats in front of me and try not to get ahead of myself.
They sent me home with a LOT of IV medication. I’m on four different antibiotics, each with a different schedule and a slightly different method for infusion. It’s a lot to manage, and will basically be my full-time job for the next month while we make sure that the bacteria in my lungs is dead and gone. As for chemo, according to my doctor, I’ve seen my last round of Hyper C-VAD. It’s an intense regimen, and after six rounds, my body has had enough. I will have more chemo, but the drugs and dosage is still TBD. For now, the focus is on beating the pneumonia–which we will.
Thanks as always for your love and support. It helps more than you know.
