July 27, 2010

I just got home from seeing Dr. Baker and got a good report. I have been taken off my wound vac and have put on a wet/dry bandage. I have to have that changed twice a day so I guess that means that home health will be coming every day at least once a day and then mom will be changing it at night. Not really sure how that is going to work Dr. Baker was in a hurry and we didn't get a chance to ask him so I guess we will find out tomorrow. He didn't give us many supplies so I guess that means home health will be coming.

I learned a valuable lesson though don't mix blue cheese with feta cheese it makes your tummy hurt. We stopped at Whole foods for lunch and so I could look at their gluten free foods as I am trying the gluten free lifestyle for awhile to see if it makes me feel better and we ate at the salad bar and it made my stomach upset and that is the only thing I can think of because I was the only one that got sick. So don't try this at home LOL. I was impressed with their selection of gluten free products though and we are going to start getting our quinoa there as it is a lot cheaper there than up here and a little cheaper than at Kroger plus it is right off of the highway.

So the good thing is I am healing well enough to be taken off the wound vac and hopefully soon enough to go home. I will need to figure out things though to have in place when the urge to go down to the neighbor's house and bum a smoke hits so I don't do that as it is hard for me fight the urge. I wasn't able to resist in the short term time I was at home. I know it is bad for me and I know I don't need to do it but the addiction is a hard one to give up. So I need to come up with things to take the place of that.

I found out today that I am no longer able to drive for awhile. When I had gone to see Dr. Baker last he had released me to drive and I was able to go home. Well that didn't last long when he found out that made it so I was no longer eligible for home health. I am having to move back in with mom and dad :(. I don't understand why I can't go to the wound care center for my wound care. I don't see what the deal is. I guess he has his reasons though. I am waiting to hear back from him. Mom will have to take me back into town when they get home as I need to get my daily meds. I dole them out weekly and I do that on Wednesday's. Just what she wants to do drive more after being in the car all day. They are on their way home from Colorado.

So needless to say I am bummed. I see Dr. Baker again on July 30th and then will see if I am able to get rid of the wound vac. When I saw him last he said just a couple of more weeks. So I will be looking forward to getting rid of this thing.

July 2 2010

I am so excited I get to go home. I saw Dr. Baker today and asked him when do I get to drive and go home? He teased me and asked if I could drive before. He then said as long as I'm not on any pain killers that he didn't see a problem with me driving. So tomorrow and over the weekend I will be moving back home. I will be taking Tyger with me. He may like it out here at my parents but it was never to be a permanent thing. Right now Tyger is asleep on the desk beside me I think he knows something is up but he can't figure out what it is. I hope he doesn't meow the whole way back home. I guess when Rex brought him out here he cried almost the whole way. Tyger doesn't like cars.

But I am excited about going home and hopefully soon getting rid of this wound vac. I asked him when I would be getting rid of it and he said probably with in the next few weeks. So hopefully when I go to see him July 30 he will give the ok to get rid of it.
