“He’s got a new attitude!”
After the worse possible morning and early afternoon I feel like a new person. It’s as though a fog has lifted and I can see the sun again. Finding out my colony counts of MRSA are so low that I don’t even need treatment helped. I just had to promise to not ever flick boogers at people. Getting out of my room helped a lot. I can now go on water seal…disconnected from the wall suction…and walk around this huge 38 bed unit. I’m on telemetry (portable heart monitor) so I can’t leave the floor, but being able to ‘freely move about the cabin’ is awesome. After I freshened up tonight I put on clothes from home…an old Hawaiian shirt and some sweatpants…wow! Sam+ called, some parishioners called, and I found out mom is making me some liver and onions tomorrow…next to kraut, the best comfort food ever. The night nurses ordered Chinese tonight, too, so Dawn and I are piggin’ out right now.
