4th Day Of My Hospital Stay -Thursday, August 27, 2015


I knew it was coming but I won’t be going home tomorrow. In fact I won’t be going home at all this weekend.

They also decided to hold off doing much on Friday. I need rest as much as anything and it is the one thing I can’t seem to do.
My ankle is swollen and they have it elevated for me right now, which means I am stuck in bed.
It’s one thing for me not to feel good and have trouble getting out of bed. It is one thing for my ankle to hurt when I walk on it.
I can still manage to get up and go to the bathroom.

I don’t like bed pans. There is nothing dignified in them.

What I want  more than anything right now (other than being healthy and HAPPY) is to be able to get in the truck and drive. Head to the East Coast. I’d say head West but to do that I have to drive North for 6 hours or more before I could even start my journey WEST.

Feeling confined.

  • I don’t like my choices taken away.
    My mood will improve. In a few hours (When I should be sleeping ) I will be more alert and that always makes me feel better.
    I am in a blue mood. Scared because I fear surgery is next and I have been down that road before.
    On a good note, except for the hot flashes (I did let them give me something else for those. I’d been fighting it because I hate pills.) I haven’t been hot.

    Danny wears a long sleeve shirt in here and will still complain that his hands get cold. I told him to bring gloves.

    That was my attempt at humor.
    He didn’t appreciate it.
    He said we had 5 inches of rain at home yesterday.

    There was a huge storm here. Lot’s of lightening and it was windy. He said we have branches and limbs down all over our yard and at the park.
    So we are a bit Soggy at home now again.

    The park, itself, only had an inch. It is amazing how that works sometimes.
    Closing for now….
    I was given a sleeping pill a little while ago. Praying it works. Danny went home around 9 PM tonight.

    They are really good about letting him stay.
    Love for Our Neck Of The Woods
    via a hospital bed.
    Thanks again for ALL of the wonderful messages. Thank you also for the cards I got. Danny brought me a handful today. Amazed  at them all.

    He said that some of the park staff have asked if they could stop by but weren’t surprised when he said that I didn’t like visitors. They are used to that.
    I don’t like them at home either.
    It is unusual for me to even let anyone else know what is going on here.
    This is new for me.
    Love S
