I want to tell my tale so bad!
Hello, I still can't see well and had a really bad day yesterday and pain in places that I didn't know I had, so can't post really. But I want to thank each and every one of you for your prayers. The Dr told my husband that I might not make it; but I did! So many complications. I haven't even felt like holding Rosie and she knows it. She is on the bed with me most of the time and asks Sherron for her other needs. I am just assuming that I still have chickens, and Josie Wales.
Intensive care is a blur to me; but I do know that I was delirous the whole time and sedated most of it as I was on a ventilator. But I could hear (remember that if you ever have a loved one in that shape). I thought that the drs were trying to kill me and then it became my husband and children. Rosie was with me and together we were trying to figure out which child had the most motive. When they finally let me become conscious, I said awful things to my children--told them that it wouldn't do any good to kill me because I was disinheiriting them (like I am wealthy or something). Luckily the drs had told everyone not to argue with me--that paranoia and delerrium (sp) were normal. My mind is still foggy as I am still taking pretty strong pain meds along with lots of other meds. I have lost around 30 lbs of fluid so far and am still so swollen. Well that is all folks. It just hit me, I have to lay back down. more later.
