I'M FREE!!!!

Physically I'm at about 80%, mentally and emotionally I'm a mess. I just want to break down and cry from joy AND frustration.

Although I'm sure that my doctor -- okay, I saw a total of SIX doctors while in hospital -- thinks that I'm nuts, but we're going to see U2 tonight. I begged and begged to be released so we could go and I also felt like I was just in limbo doing nothing.

So I promise a more detailed post about what happened to me. It's a pretty crazy story and it looks like I'm going to have A LOT of doctor's appointments in my future. I have to see an infectious disease specialist now!!! So crazy.

The next step is a CT scan on Monday to see if the abscess has shrunk. I have to take my first dose of the oral antibiotics soon. I hope and pray that I don't have a reaction because I'll end up back in the hospital. I didn't have any side effects with the IV version of the drug so I'm not too concerned.

Thank you all for your prayers. As I told Sew, I offered up all of the pain (and there was a TON of it on Tuesday!) for all of you!

  6. I would say you poor, poor thing, but, um... U2???!!!! Now I just want to call you something else!!!

    But seriously, I'm so sorry you had to go through all of that! Man o man, didn't you have your fill of Drs and hospitals, JB? You just had to go back for more? :)

    I'll now be praying that your emotional and mental state catch up to your physical state. U2 should help with that.
