Anywho, back to jumping the gun. Those aren't the only lab results that they have not received back before starting treatment. I have quite a bit of antibiotics flowing through my veins, most of them we haven't received results back on yet. Jeeze, I don't know why my liver counts keep going up... maybe all these extra procedures, sedation, and medications on my poor new lil liver? Maybe not, we'll see.
Now today they say my labs are about the same as they have been these last few days -- to high, and they are thinking that the hematoma may need to be taken out, but since it is in there like a bunch of grapes full of fluid, they cannot poke a bunch of holes to drain each one, so that means another surgery to clean it out. They say that it is most likely not the reason for my numbers rising, but they don't have much else to go by, and since it is not going away on its own (like it is supposed to!) they might as well remove it. It does put a lot of extra pressure on my belly, and has grown from 10cm x 4 x 4 to 14cm x 4 x 4. Yuck. So that is it medically speaking. My hubby is going to spend the night with me tonight, ooh la la. teheheehee, just kidding. No funny business here. And Monday, River starts his first day of kindergarten. I'm coming to terms with it but it still really hurts my heart to know I won't be there. I had planned to make him some ABC shaped pancakes and cry all the way home from dropping my big boy off, but instead, I'm making daddy film it all - I don't care who it embarrasses. hehehe
I'm on my 6th week inside and I'm going a little stir crazy, but as they say, I'm feeding my faith and starving my fears! I'll be home soon enough and will have many years with my family to enjoy... and believe me, I will be enjoying every moment of it, I'm not taking one second for granted. :) Don't sweat the small stuff my friends, its not worth it. Enjoy what you have... you could have less. (Oh ya, I should make bumper stickers or something)
