a message about many medical maladies


The past ten days have not exactly been a time I will look back on with great excitement and joy. 

To be precise, I am recovering from an infection, allergic reactions to medications given for said infection, e.coli, and a heart rate of 137 which resulted in an eight hour visit to the hospital. It's been a grand-slam of medical maladies.

I would like to introduce six of my new best friends. 
Try not to be jealous.

Christopher has been taking wonderful care of me. He is in charge of dispensing all medications, as well as delivering applesauce, yogurt, juice, and any other get-well necessities. Last night he even took me for a drive at sunset because I was getting a little stir crazy after being inside so long. I think I'll keep him around to take care of me forever and ever. 

Now I must go. I do believe it's Maalox time again.

Oh dear - that sounds like NO FUN! I'm glad that your husband has been taking good care of you. Unfortunately my husband got broken in on that duty right quick; I came down with strep throat on our wedding day. He's an excellent caregiver too, thank God!
I hope you are well on the mend now!
