Diet Mountain Dew and other things….   Leave a comment

So because I am back on third shift this week, I started drinking diet Mountain Dew for the caffeine

I am not crazy about it, but it is what it is.


I went back to the hospital again today and the doctor poked around in my wound again trying to loosen up the little pockets of blood clots in my back

It was painful but not as bad as last week

I have to go back again next week and she said it will be several more weeks before she can stitch me up and that will be the end of it.

Not what I wanted to hear, but I want it gone so…….

My husband and daughter have to change the bandage and repack it every other day.

Repacking it is quite painful as they have to stuff this medicated gauze inside my would and go about three inches.

It feels like I am being stabbed with a knife and they twist the knife, when they repack the wound.

Needless to say I hate it, but I want it better so……..

My blood sugars have been declining too.

The doctor said today that they may still run high with this infection but it was 355 last Thursday and only 204 this morning

So I am moving in the right direction 🙂


8 days and we will be in Florida for a week.

I am looking forward to that.

I was going to add something else but for the life of me I can’t remember it now
