Still Here

They kept me for another day. My iron was very low, so they gave me IV iron in hopes that it will help me breathe, which I am sure it will. Most likely I will go home tomorrow. My liver definitely sent up the white flag and has stopped producing the clotting factors like a good little liver. I am much closer to being as thin blooded as they want. I have had some ups and downs, but as I sit right now, I am feeling better than I did yesterday. After a mega throwing up episode, I have a chance to be very grateful for Zofran. I haven't ever had it before, but let me tell you, it is a wonderful thing when you are sick to your stomach.
Still blogging from bed, Jo

What made you so sick? throwing up on top of everything else, it just doesn't seem fair.

I just nominated you for the sunshine award. Not that you should think you have to nominate 12 people like the "rules" say, but the award comes with a beautiful picture of a flower and I love flowers when I am under the weather and wanted to share. Rest and feel better soon. :-)

JO! What are you doing in the hospital still? Oh, I see...it's the staff. They can't bear to be parted from their favorite patient. I understand. Your company is rather addictive.

I really, really hope that you are feeling better and on the mend Jo. You have been in my thoughts and prayers and will continue to be. ♥♥

K J and the kids said...

Do better than this. I need to be SURE that you are ready to go home or I'm calling your doctor again. :)

Feel better soon!

Azul said...

I'm crossing all my bits that the Iron will give you a boost.

Take care!

Jami said...

You are such a good person to find the silver lining in a pile of puke. I love you.

Laura said...

Praying hard for you my dear Jo. And your family, and especially Little Man.

I love Lovenox! I gave myself a shot every day during my miracle twin pregnancy, controlled my clotting issues, and gave birth to my beautiful girls! God Bless Lovenox. I know it will heal you. (And not make you pregnant with twin girls! :):))
Love, Laura
