Getting better

August 25th, 2011 at 11:16 pm

Today was a good day. My drain was removed, and it has made such a difference in the way I feel. Then I went to see my primary care physician and got lots of encouragement on how well I am doing.

I have decided to give myself the IV's. I could have changed my plan to having it done at the health center, but then I would have had to pay for all the meds already delivered, as well as the ones the center would provide. It would have been really expensive.

My boss came today to help me with the IV. (She has a daughter with many health issues). I think tomorrow I will be able to do it alone. My boss also brought me a reimbursement check for my conference -- $1127. I deposited it into savings.

I am really looking forward to sleeping tonight without that drain in my butt!

I've had three free delicious meals this week; I am really enjoying this aspect of my illness!

    I think the highlight of my month was when they took the drainage tube out. It is such a feeling of freedom! I'm glad you are feeling better today and hope it continues.
