ShanN Posted July 24, 2013 Report Share Posted July 24, 2013 HI EVERYONE. SHAN TYPED THIS MESSAGE FOR ALL OF YOU A COUPLE HRS AGO BUT WITH LOUSY INTERNET WAS UNABLE TO SEND IT, SO I AM SENDING FOR HER. -Mary (SIL) Hi. I've missed you all! Dr allowed me my iPad (de-germed of course!) in isolation to write to you all. Though I'm not getting enough Internet signal here in this part of the hospital so Mary will send this later. I had my brother's bone marrow cells infused to me last Thursday. God bless him. I've not seen him only once because he has my two nephews with him and they are both sick so no carrying germs to me. I had a few days with severe mouth sores but they are starting to let up. I've had two blood transfusions since the 18th. I'm on yucky antibiotics... But in IV form so they aren't making me too sick. Having a good amount of nausea but getting Zofran regularly. And a lot of bad pain but the morphine drip is helping some and helping me sleep four hours or so at a time. I'm praying and praying the healthy stem cells start taking up a healthy home in my system and growing from there to recovery. But I'm told it will be several weeks more before we know. I am out of it a lot. I guess a blessing. But I hate this hospital and isolation and pain etc... And I have dreams of my Leo bear vividly being here but then wake and he is not. I miss him more than I think even I know right now because I'm so medicated. Sometimes I just wish I would not make this battle so I could be with him. But that's not my decision to make. I'm sad. And I'm really kind of numb still. It will be two months next week. Still can't wrap myself around it. Thank you my dears for all of your thoughts prayers and well wishes. Mary has read most everything to me. I just wanted to write something while I had a little energy. I'm wiped out and need to go back to sleep. Love and hugs.
