This Has To Be Over Soon

I had planned on doing a more thorough update about my hospitalization, but I was feeling so exhausted and just not quite myself until last Wednesday when they discovered an infection in my incision. They lanced it, leaving me with a second open wound in my stomach, and sent me home. By Friday, the infected wound looked so bad that my mom called the doctor who wanted me to come to the ER. I told my mom that if we went to the ER, they would admit me to the hospital and she didn't believe me. By Friday night, I was being admitted for IV antibiotics and observation. I was released this afternoon. I am feeling much better now and I'm hoping that the two open wounds will close up soon and that I can get back to normal. We'll see...

I'm Finally Home

Yes, I have actually been in the hospital recovering from surgery for the last 28 days. There were a number of complications - almost all minor, yet they couldn't release me until they were taken care of. I'm exhausted and I promise that I will post more details later, but for now I need to rest. I am doing really well. My liver function numbers are normal and it has already started to regenerate. They were also able to remove all the cancer so I should but without evidence of disease.
