A week in review

I know I haven't posted much this week but there hasn't been much blog worthy going on.

The girls are on spring break and Grace has been going to camp this week. She's had a great time and each day had a new adventure. She's been swimming, bowling and to the movies just to name a few.

Josh has been busy at work, like always, and taking great care of us and the house. He is without a doubt the best husband I could ever hope for. I hit the spouse jackpot with him! Thanks Sue!

As for me all three of my classes have started so it's keeping me busy. I missed the week I had surgery but my instructor was great about it and I'm all caught up so no worries on that front. I just have to make sure I stay on top of everything, it's definitely a whole different mind set!

I know I said I wouldn't talk about my health on here so much so I'll just give an update. Last week I had a lump where the infection was removed and started running a fever again. I saw the doctor Weds and he wanted to give it until Friday and see how I was. Well my home nurse decided on Thursday it wasn't getting any better and called my doctor to let him know. He had me come in on Friday for another CT scan and told me not to eat or drink anything because they were thinking it was another infected fluid pocket and I was going to have to have another surgery. After the scan the doctor talked to the radiologist and great news is there are no fluid pockets and every thing related to my surgery is healing great. He thinks after Monday I shouldn't even need the home nurse anymore! Yay! They did also find out the cause of the fever though, thanks to the CT scan, turns out I have pneumonia. I'm already taking antibiotics and it's, thankfully, a mild case.

You know your perception is way off when you go to the doctor and are relieved to find out you only have pneumonia.

Glad you are able to do your classes to keep your mind off your body (that sounds funny, doesn't it? :) )
Hang in there!
