Well, I was released from the hospital yesterday. Yay for that good news. The bad news is that I was diagnosed with colitis. They took biopsies and will get back to me to let me know if it is bacterial or autoimmune. Two years ago, when I had general anesthesia I had horrible side-effects to fentanyl, well the same thing happened this time in the hospital. I have hallucinations and extreme dry mouth for days. I’m sorry if this post is a bit here and there, I am feeling a bit out of it.
I have been doing ok, just extremely exhausted. I was able to get up and do some stuff today, but let me tell you it was with regret. After 4 days of dilaudid I am still feeling the after effects. Tonight my sister Kristin went into false labor, so I somehow drove myself down to see the birth of my new niece, bella grace. That’s not going to happen now… But hopefully in the next 24 hour hours!
In other news, a year ago my mom had a hip replacement. Recently, my mom had a few really bad falls. It looks like she broke the socket and will most likely need another hip replacement. So with a ready to pop sister (measuring at 42-43 weeks), a hurt mom and a girl quite disconcerted by being in the hospital for a few days .. things are a bit crazy here!
The good news? God is good. ALL the time!
I am thankful for doctors that have the knowledge to do liver transplant.
I am thankful for the miracle of birth and the soon to be addition of another niece!
I am thankful that my mom is somehow able to still get around, even with a broken hip socket.
I am thankful that my sister qualified as my living donor.
I am thankful for my wonderful fiance who spent every minute by my side in the hospital, squeezed in the tiny bed with me just to watch some tv.
I am thankful for my sweet nephews.
Cute nephew story:
As my pregnant sister, Kristin, was leaving for the hospital to have bella (or so she thought), Micah yells “wait! you forgot something” and he ran to grab a little purple dress for his new little sister to wear home from the hospital. (He is only 4).
