One Day More...

So last night when they took a pressure reading it didn't come back so great. They ended up increasing my IV medication (Milrinone) which means I have to stay another day for monitoring. The good news is that the SWAN in my neck should be coming out later this afternoon and then I'll move up the a regular room. I'm hoping I go up to the 11th floor because all the rooms are private and have just been remodeled. I'm not really in the mood to meet a roommate. I didn't get much sleep last night even though I was given something to help me do so. I'm so bored today. Even with my iPad and laptop to keep me occupied. Kris came to visit this morning which is always nice of him. I'm sure the last place he wants to spend is day off is in a hospital (for those who don't know, Kris is a nurse at Good Shepherd which is a partner of HUP). He said he's going to try to come back this evening. I hope he does. I'm very lonely today and the company helps to take my mind off things.

I was also supposed to visit my friend Ange tomorrow for her birthday but I'm not going to be able to make it now. I know she'll understand (I know she's reading this lol) but I still feel bad because I don't get to see her as often as I would like. But I know we will get together soon.

Well, that's all the news for right now. As always, I'll keep you all posted if anything changes.


  1. you're darn right i'm reading this, LOL, and of course I understand. I'll miss you, but your health obviously comes first. and we absolutely will get together soon. keep me updated about everything and i hope you feel better soon! <3

  2. I wish I could come visit you! My circus would certainly have you entertained. :) I hope you get your nice private room soon and not some stinky roommate. Thinking of you! -Sandy
