They've been keeping Drew from me since he's been sick and snotty lately, even though I promised Mere Id wear a mask and tether Drew to his excersaucer, but it didnt work. Emma and Alex will be stepping in as my kiddie obession for the week....
Before I go in to Chili Cook-Off Details & pictures, Ill update you on the latest and greatest...
Came home from the home from the hospital on Friday night and got back to Cincinnati Saturday morning. John had done 100% of the work for the party so I didnt have to lift a finger. Sunday morning I woke up feeling kind of ugh...then I ate some soup, and my breathing was getting worse, and I was coughing so bad I ended up getting sick, and John winds up taking me BACK up to the hospital....like, 24 hours later. So yes, I basically got discharged for the chili cook-off and went right back.
There really wasnt much they could do. Still havent gotten my PET scan at this point, and they only did an ultrasound on my legs to see if there were any blood clots. Just trying to rule everything out with the breathing. The ER doc called Romer and he said to call the office first thing Monday and get an appointment.
We go in today (Monday) and Romer doesnt waste anytime letting me know we've got to make some changes quick. He's putting me back on the same drug that cleared up my lungs last time (I was feeling better in a matter of days), and, just as I had been fantasizing, HE GOT ME STARTED ON IT TODAY!!! And since we're already moving in our new direction and with the Cat scan and the tumor markers indicating bad news, we both agreed the PET was really unnecessary.
My legs were really sore last night and I took some pain killers that helped me get to sleep, but as usual, completely RUINED my day with nausea and stomach aches, but getting my lickety-split spoiled brat treatment at Romers pretty much made my day. So, Im not healed, but things are finally heading in a much more positive direction and just that makes me feel better already.
Now onto the 3rd Annual Chili Cookoff pics!!
