I'm back after a few days as an inpatient. My second elbow tricked into an elephant arm and high fever after my doctor's appointment. I ended up immediately admitted. 6 cultures later and a bit of compartment syndrome, a nice deep slash and degunk and later we found out that i had contracted MRSA from my surgery. I spent 5 days in. And now have a nurse coming into my home. My left arm is above my head most of the time..I tried typing and using it and i get 5 minutes of use before the pain kicks in.
I see my onc in a few. Dr.L tomorrow.
I guess psysios in my future.
threw a punch at your cancer.
It has been a while since I have had a chance to write. Most of my time is spent in bed. My well meaning sister visited with Influzena A and I have been pretty weak and mostly house bound since then. It hurts to type for too long. My incision might be infected or something it is very painful. It looks like it is bulging a bit. And the hydro morphine does nothing really for the pain at all.
I see my GP tomorrow and it is better than waiting in the ER for hours for an evaluation to wait the time and get some other people sick with the influzena. I am going to have a hard time going back to work with my arm being this way, since 80% of my day is spent typing and talking and well I have no voice for the immediate future. I can get about 25 minutes in before I have to rest. Which is noob typing.
I have been getting a lot of quality time in with Iain which is really nice. I just thought that maybe this year my vacation pay would not be used for cancer and we could do normal couple things. Am I just unlucky in life to get two different types?
Iain's pain doctor put him on cannabis oil for pain so I am looking forward to his being under control a fair bit. I miss you all and I don't ever stop thinking about you guys... Janay, Thomas, Marcia, Irene, Kathee, Emsnana, Laren, Val, Michael, and everyone...so so so many of you. When I am not typing I am reading about you and thinking about you ass kickers. I am sorry that you have had to face this but you keep me strong with your words. <3
