My Week in Numbers

9 nights I have spent in the hospital
7 days until the 28th anniversary of my birth in this very hospital
6 runs the Giants scored tonight, woot!
3 trips to the ER for this ordeal
2 CT scans in 2 weeks
And 1 mango smoothie a day, keeps Amber happy during her hospital stay

I wasn't going to post today, because hospital updates aren't the most fun to write, and y'all are probably getting tired of reading them. But I do thank you for reading them and for all your wonderful comments. So I apologize for one more hospital post but I figured I have come this far so I might as well keep this hospital journal up so I can look back on this ordeal one day and remember all
the craziness.
Today my Dad and Rena kept me company in the hospital. We watched morning talk shows (and critiqued Martha's outfits), watched some baseball and discussed cities, countries and states we have been to. It was quite a fun day considering we sat around all day waiting to hear what the heck is up with me. When my specialist finally showed up he compared the CT scans from last week with the ones from this week, and while there has been significant improvements there is still a hole in my lung that needs to be watched. Wonderful! So they upped my antibiotics and I am currently being montiored to make sure I am in healing mode and not taking steps backward. If I keep improving I will be able to go home tomorrow, so fingers crossed!! I still can't believe all this is happening. Thank you Dad and Rena for your time, company and expert smoothie delivery services. And again, thank you all for the sweet comments and thoughts!! It is so nice to read them all.
