(Here is another one of my cute bunnies. Check out the eye make up. This one is a Dutch. )
Today has been a good day. Not without its challenges, but a good day. One of the surgeons called and told me he was calling in two prescripts for antibiotics. A swab of the “hole” showed the presence of two bacteria that are common to people going through what I am going through, but in order to be “covered” he wanted to take action and be ahead of the game. So now I am on two different antibiotics (CIPRO and a Sulfa based one) and I am no longer taking the Cephalexin. These are really strong and have a list of side effects and possible reactions, so pray for me that I do well and that the Lord Himself will cover me. Doctors treat and medicate, but God is the Healer. I am so thankful for the care these guys are providing me with both surgically and follow up care. It is good to know they have my back. I am also so thankful for The Lord and all He has provided me and my family with during this time.
Still changing the dressing and I have gotten a little more used to it, but it is not easy. The site is still really sore and even burns/stings sometimes. I find myself procrastinating just before it is time to change it. The phrase “just do it” does not help, but that is really the only way to look at it. The Doctor said it was okay to get in the shower and let warm water run over the site – I am not sure about that, I may give a try. If you hear someone yelling in the shower, that might be me tomorrow.
Did I tell you I had part of a crown break off the other day? I was chewing and bit down on what I thought was a piece of rock and then realized it was part of one of my teeth. I knew it was coming one day, just didn’t know when. I have an appt to get it looked at.
We all got together tonight and ate leftovers and some fresh cooked stuff. We had a good time visiting. A couple of the family are sniffing and sneezing with sore throats. It is that time of year, I ain’t claiming anything but good health. I do not have a choice.
The cats are both home and doing okay. We are having to medicate them twice a day for 7 days and keep a close eye on them too. They are acting normal , just a little slower going. They do not like being in a cage that is for sure. She (Blacky) had a little umbilical hernia which was repaired during the surgery.
Mom is doing good and I have yet to talk with my brother, but my aunt said he was okay.
Don’t forget to vote this coming Tuesday - November 7th.
I am supporting the amendment to have a Central school system. I would encourage others to do the same. You know I don’t like to get political, but however you vote is your business, just be sure to vote.
I will catch ya’ll up tomorrow. It’s dressing changing time. Trust God. George.
