I've Got The Best News Ever!!!

Well,I've got the best news ever for you tonight!I'm home from the hospital & rehabilitation center now!I'm still on the road to recovery,though!I've got a doctor's appointment on Monday afternoon for a new primary care doctor!After that,I've got home care coming for my therapy,etc.I went from being in a wheelchair to a walker to a 4 wheeled walker in less than a month.Wow,huh?Boy,I'll say!I did need some help when I was in a wheelchair & some help when I didn't!The people at the Rocky Mountain Rehabilitation center really gave me the help that I needed & at the hospital as well.One of my doctors named Kelly Beams recommended that I should get up & walk & that's what I did.Thank you,Dr.Beams for what you did for me!I certainly appreciate it!While I was at Rocky Mountain Care,I was cared for by a person named Kyle Toone & he was the best & he still is!My occupational therapist was a person by the name of Robert York & I would always surprise him by being up before the rooster started to crow in the mornings!I was released on the same day as 3 other ladies named:Joyce Nielsen,Delores Warr & some other lady's name that I can't remember who went to live over at Cottage Glen just right over where my brother & I had lived!Well,I'll post more later!

It's Been A While Since I've Blogged!

Well,it's like it says in regards to my blog or title that it's been a while since I've either blogged or posted because I've been in the hospital for about a week(or thereabouts)with acute pancreatitis & I couldn't eat or drink for a few days because of it!It's the worst thing anyone could ever ask for besides the 24 hour flu bug.It eats at you until you stop throwing up.I had to have an IV in my arm for anti-nausea,pain & some other type of medication.My brother had to take me to the hospital & I was in for about a week.I'm out now & am receiveing treatment & therapy right now.The veins in my left arm were no good & they tried to establish an IV for me.I'm in the Rocky Mountain Care center in Tooele right now.My lipase levels were through the roof when I was admitted & I don't really know what they are now.I was put on a liquid diet at first when I could eat & then I got onto a diet that I could tolerate.Well,enough of that!I'll either blog or post more soon!
