Ive been here for 15 days. I'm actually surprised that for the most part, it's gone fairly fast. Yesterday was a pretty good day...Steph and my littles came and surprised me...and my sister brought my little Mickey for a visit. He danced all around on my bed, licked and licked and snuggled up. We went outside for a bit...it was a little chilly, but not too bad. I walked Mickey while the boys had fun on the play set. And it's nice to be outside because I don't have to wear a mask. I do when I'm anywhere outside my room. I really wish I could post pictures...I told Warren to get me the adapter thing that I need.
My creatinine level started to creep up a bit again, so I'm back on fluids. Shoot. But whatever it takes to help my kidneys, right? Today at PT, i did stairs, a lot of walking all over the hospital and rode the bike for 10 minutes. I was impressed with myself! I'm feeling stronger. I'm doing PFTs again tomorrow and they need to keep going UP again...even if just a point. The way it sounds is that I'll be here awhile yet...they want to get my PFTs up as high as possible. And I'm OK with that, because I want to feel as good as i can before going home. They are giving me a pass to get out of here for awhile on Sunday. I thought about going home, but not sure it's worth it with the drive. Maybe we'll just go out to a nice restaurant...have a little date. I'm ready to get away for a little, so I'm excited!
And now I'm going to chill and listen to our Hiland boys game in the state semi-finals. I feel like I'm probably one of the few people from our little town that isn't there! Good luck guys!
