Home From the Hospital

I wasn't expecting to be discharged before the weekend, however, my blood counts rebounded and my fever has been eliminated, so here I am back at home! While in hosptial I received a couple more units of blood, as well as the IV antibiotic, and I will continue with oral antibiotics for several days.

My next chemo will be pushed back by a week to give me extra recovery time, so I get a little bonus "break" from the chemo grind.

Not much else..... I'll be resting lots and laying low while I recover from this latest little bump in the road !!!

Well I'm glad you've got home so quickly.

Take care and rest up.

HI Joanne, I think that all of our prayers have been heard. I know that you are much happier to be at home than in the hospital. Rest up and take care.
Lots of Love and Hugs, Loretta

Thanks Joanne (and Gord) for the recent updates. Glad to hear this "bump in the road" is behind you and that you are able to rest at home. That beats a hospital anytime! It seems hard to imagine that having pneumonia could be good news but glad to hear that was what set you back (and not disease progression). We'll take that as good news (although I'm sure having pneumonia is not exactly fun). Enjoy your chemo break as much as possible. Love and continued prayers! Nick & Lorraine

Hi Jo,
Glad to hear that you are back at home. I know that will be far more comfortable for you. I hope that your "break" goes well.
