Guess What???

My dad was released from the hospital last night! Yayyyyy!!! I
am SO happy! He is in a lot of pain though. I got my first good
night's sleep last night and slept til about 9:30am today then went
into what turned out to be a very long day at work. I am so be-
hind! Then I went to visit my dad at his house and I hate that he
is hurting so much but he does look good.

By the way, of all four of us who were in the room a lot, guess
who left the hospital with a staph infection? Yep! That would
be the immune compromised ME. Now, I am SUPER HAPPY
that my dad didn't get a staph infection, nor anyone else actually.
But why do I always have to pick up every damn germ floating
around?

And UNFORTUNATELY, it's on my FACE. Very unattractive
but the doctor said we were lucky to catch it this early and I'm
on Cipro since this morning. Lovely. This is the second staph
infection I've had and I knew immediately that's what it was.
Lovely. Just lovely. LOL

I had a blood count taken today to see how well my procrit is
working and I'll get the results of that tomorrow, but I have a
feeling its going to come out well because I am starting to feel
better and I have more color and all of that good stuff. Plus, my
migraines seem to be under control lately.

So now if the chicken market would just turn around and people
could quit hitting my damn car then life would truly start look-
pretty damn good. LOL

Good to hear your dad is out of the hospital.

I got a staff infection when I was a little kid. The doctor said if they had caught it 12 hours later, they'd have had to amputate my leg.

I am so glad he was released..when all the dust settles, you might want to consider locking yourself into a sealed compound impregnable of natural disaster, famine, disease or human mishap....seriously, it has got to be a relief that he is home...now if it is possible, get some rest freind.

Great News, Syd! Take care of yourself, Vit C, Zinc, Mexican antibodies, etc; lol. Mainly-REST,
something you haven't done now for awhile. I'll order chicken tonite in your honour.

I am so happy that your dad is home. Sorry about your staph infection. Take care!

I so happy to head your dad had finally been released from the hospital. That was a long journey for you. Cipro is ugly stuff but it does beat the alternative. It's nice to see your voice again.

That was supposed to be hea(R) NOT (d).

Denise said...

Great news! (Well, except for the staph infection):)

That's great news! Now both you and your dad can settle down and get better :-)

I've had staph twice, as well. Both time caught it at the gym. You are right, once you've had it you know what it is right away...eeww!

Do not take zinc while on Cipro as it can render Cipro ineffective. Also avoid antacids.

Take care of yourself. Staph infections can be very serious. I've had several that required intravenous intervention ... not fun.

Good news about your dad, and I hope you are feeling better.

I'm so glad you Dad is home. . . I hate hospitals. . .

Please, get some rest. Don't run yourself down any more than you already are.

By the way. . . Whay IS UP with the chicken market? Local stores are giving it away. Good for me, but that's got to be hurting your business.

Take care. . .

HUGGSS!!

great news on your dad!! have you seen "my name is earl"?

last night earl's ex wife was teaching her chinese competitor manicurist to speak english, the phrase she taught her, "i have big infection"

a classic.

Great to hear your dad's doing fine. I'm not sure what a staph infection is, but any infection sounds gross to me.

Hi Sydney.

Just a question: I tried to access that blog "formerblogster.blogspot.com", and all I get is the error page.

Has it been deleted?

Please reply in your comments, as I don't have my blog set up here yet. Thanks!

Definitely glad that your dad is better! :)

I'm dealing with a sick again/well again mother who does her best to avoid going to the doctor. Even though she promised me she'd be more accepting of medical care after she was released from the hospital a few years ago. She lied.
