Hospital Day 09292011

Funny that I have to attach an actual date to my hospital days, which means that I am here enough (every Thursday for infusions) to where I need to be specific about the date.

Yeah...I put a head covering on, my nurse just passed and asked it something had changed.  Anyway, in this picture I am on the phone with my mom.  But oftentimes, I have to handle business from my hospital room.  As a matter of fact, I am about to call my primary care, so that he can edit some of my prescriptions that I receive during my infusion sessions.  The newer prescriptions say to take by mouth, but since I am already hooked up to the IV for my infusion, my nurse might as well administer the medications through the IV (Which we usually do, but some how it all got mixed up in the new script.).

And I am not gonna complain about already being ready to go home for the day (got here at 6:45 AM and won't leave until around 4 PM), just gonna do my time and not dwell on how wonderful it is when I am home in my own bed.  Wait...said I wasn't gonna complain.  My bad.  Shyt happens.

And in the picture above that is me mouthing "thank you" to everyone who has sent me emails (you can, too:  So many people have reached out to share their stories with me, and I am grateful to have such great readers.

When I started this blog in 2005, I could not have imagined that I would still be posting to it in 2011.  And I never would have imagined that I would have a lasting viewership.  And I surely could not have fathomed being chronically ill.  But here I am.  In the moment.  Being amazed and blessed by life's journey.

"Be good.
Be patient.
Be in the moment.
And thank you for being on this ride with me."
