normally

Normally, I write a poem most days and of late, I have not been doing that… I am out of my element and have been since Friday, July 26th, when I was taken, by ambulance to a local hospital.

Surgery was done on Sunday, July 28th and I am now sitting here in the bed with a machine (wound vac) attached to my right leg, to drain the infection out of my leg through the opening in it.

So, I had my sister bring my laptop, so I can stay in the loop as much as possible and I may feel the urge to write at any time. But, when there are nurses, Doctors, aides, etc. who are popping in whenever it is best for them, I have precious little time to myself, except when I am sleeping (which I am doing like a new born baby does)

It appears I may be in here for the rest of the week. They are being thorough with their tests and care. Everyone wants me to be able to go home as soon as possible but they want to make sure I do not have to come back.

Thank you for ALL the prayers and support for me and my family, they have been scared to death (not that there is any reason for it) because I am not someone who EVER gets sick. I am not sick, but I have a medical situation that requires the attention of professionals.

God Bless you all!Ā  Take good care of yourselves and know that your health is worth the world.

xoxo

  1. OMG, Annette! What happened. Have you had sepsis? However, I send you the biggest embrace and I hope that the healing progresses very well and that you are sent home soon again. But I am glad to hear that you seem to be in good hands šŸ’–

      • I can only imagine how scared you must have been. I am so glad you are in good hands. Annette. I hope they can soon come over with a diagnosis. Knowing what to deal with is not only necessary to treat it but also to deal with it mentally. Huge hugs, Annette šŸ’–

  16. Hospitals aren’t the best places for rest or creativity. I know that from personal experience, despite what some people who haven’t been in one think. I hope you won’t have to be in there much longer, and the medical issue that caused you to end up in there is one that won’t have you making too many repeat trips in to hospital.

  17. Wishing you a speedy recovery, Annette. I did wonder what your ailment was. An infection can be very nasty so take it easy and rest.
