Hi Flist, I’m home at last after another trip to the hospital. I couldn’t get rid of a nasty infection and ended up having to stay in the hospital for IV antibiotics for 7 days. The treatment really helped, but it was really hard to be away from home that long! I had a good doctor, but he definitely wasn’t Dr. Joe McKay.

During my stay, I watched the Food Network a lot – which is a bad idea for someone that is on a diet of hospital food and no snacks to be found anywhere! I also watched plenty of do-it-yourself fix-the-house shows – and I don’t even have a house!

So, I’m home and doing fine, catching up on my flist and other important interweb stuff! I sure hope everyone else is heading into the holiday season in good health. I am definitely thankful for many good friends that helped and encouraged me during my medical adventures!

OMG! I'm glad you're home and feeling better! I'm a little overwhelmed by my own life at the moment and haven't been keeping up with my flist for ages! Just skiving for a few minutes right now before I get back to work (moving! from the States to Canada!!)

Anyway I'm glad you're on the mend and back home - it's always way easier to relax and get better in your own home.

Omigod Pam! I didn't know! I'm so sorry to hear you were in the hospital again! But best to be where you could get the right treatment to get the infection under control.

Dr. McKay is very concerned that you take it easy and not overdo! Jim and Blair beanie are so downcast, hearing that their Auntie Pamster is still under the weather, they are trying to think what they can do to make you feel better and make sure that you stay well.

Sorry to have been out of touch. Especially during this setback! Since Taz and Ching died, I'm back to falling asleep every night at about 8 and getting nothing done again as usual!

Take good care of yourself! May this be the end of the health problems for good and all!

I'm so sorry to hear you were back in the hospital. If I'd known, I'd've sent you as much blue jello as you could eat.

Here's hoping you've seen the last of it.

Ack - I had a horrid feeling 'cos you'd gone awfully quiet...

Hope you're doing much better now - take massive care of yourself, ok?

Aw bless, I am glad they set you free finally. A week of IV antibiotics is rough! Please remember that it is going to be quite awhile before you feel really good and strong again. It is a ratio of like a month for every week you are flat out sick to recoup! Wouldn't we all love a doctor as sweet looking as Dr McKay???!!!??? Then again, I might never leave the hospital!
