I AM OUTTA HERE!
Being released from hospital this morning after 7 long days. Wow.
The Doctors took me off IV's yesterday and switched to dry pills (antibiotics).
Since the inflammation didn't spring back up over night they are going to be able to send me home today.
I'm am so done with hospitals!
Lying in bed all day? No thank you. I'll bicycle instead.
Now I have to get my strength back and get my culprit teeth taken care of by an oral surgeon and I'm well on my
way to normality.
Who would have thought I'd spend the entire week that way?
1.Don't over do.....anything
2.Watch how hot you get and how hydrated you are at all times.
3.Don't allow your basic defensive systems get over taxed or you are vulnerable to bacterial infection.
4.Cracked teeth are invitations to inflammation
5.Once you have an inflammation it can be like a grass fire. There is NO END in sight.
6.Stopping an infection--even with antibiotics--is NOT easy. It takes a long long time.
7.Learn to value the simple things like swallowing, mobility and basic health.
8.Friends and Family are the only reason to be alive and walking around on planet Earth.
THANK YOU, ALL!
Honestly, I now understand how important a community solidarity is to the mental well-being of humanity in a way I did not understand before.
Your generous positive messages actually lifted me up. (Uh-oh, I can hear Bette Midler singing......)
Sincerly from my heart, I love you all.
