Saturday Morning Hospital Update

Sorry I haven't posted again since Wednesday! I'm still in the hospital, and are feeling better. My fevers are gone, and I got my appetite back last night. My xray is also looking better, but don't know if the pneumonia is gone or not. I'm still not feeling great, but are on my way. They are continuing to treat me with 3 IV antibiotics in addition to the albuterol/atrovent aerosols. My wheezing is still acting up as well as my coughing, but that's pretty understandable.

I still have not been transferred to our transplant unit yet, but are going to do everything I can to try to get transferred today. Pray that I can get transferred, because it's not the same being off unit, and especially when you don't feel good. Dr.Y came on yesterday for the weekend, so I'm not sure how he will react to the request??

I'm trying to do a little bit of school work and plan to do some more this weekend. My guess is that I will be here until Wednesday and then go home on home IV's. But no-one has said anything yet, so who knows? I'm guessing we will do a pretty aggressive treatment plan this time to make sure the pneumonia clears up completely. I'll update again soon or if I end up moving rooms (keeping my fingers crossed).

Thanks for your continued prayers and sweet comments. Please continue to keep my friend Shaun in your prayers too, as he is still ventilated. He's improving, but it's been a VERY slow process!

I hope everyone has a great weekend.

Oh Katey, I'm so sorry you are having such a tough time, but I am glad that you are feeling better. I just said a prayer for you and Shaun. I hope you both continue to get better.

You are super amazing to still be wanting to do school work while in the hospital! My husband Josh only wants to veg and ride on the Iv polls up and down the halls when he is in. Both you and shaun are in our prayers, Not get better soon!
