Darn darn darn .  Today is my nadir and you guessed it, fever and chills.  Hubby is at his ill parents.  Fever up to 102.5  so as soon as he get here we are back to Dante's Inferno (ER).  Crap but knew my white cells suck.  Will let you know when (if) I ever make it through the ER!  I know it will be fine just don't like going in.

If you have to wait, get that temp down! Quickest way to do that is to get in a tub of tepid water. 102.5 is nothing to mess with. That or get a neighbor to take you for help.  Be better Pattie! So sorry this is happening again for you. Hugs!

Sending you hugs and prayers that every thing will be ok.  I hate going to the ER and it has to be bad before I go.  I seem to,have a habit of hitting holidays.

I hate the ER, too, but, given the alternative...  Agree with MAbound, though.  Get that fever down.  So sorry you have to deal with this!

I'm so sorry, Patty!!  I hate the ER too but know when I get there, I'm in good hands.  You need to take care of yourself and get that white count up so you can fight whatever it is that is attaching your body - way too much crap going around.  (((Patty)))

Love,

Eldri

You are really being plagued with stuff, Patty.  I hope the ED worked some magic and things will soon be looking up for you.  Don't lose your sense of humor.

Hi Patty,

Hope that you got the hydration, iron and anything else you need. Eldri's right, even if the ER is a tiresome ordeal.  Hoping you are on the mend.

You don't realize what a presence someone has on this board until their voice goes silent. I haven't wanted to be a nag about how much I've been thinking and wondering about how she is, but boy am I worried! Praying fervently for all to be well soon.

Seems like the waiting part of this journey extends well beyond our own journey. Starting to hate that word!

Well just got home from a too long stay in ICU.  I am dead and ready to sleep...  I wound up with Septic Shock, healthcare peumonia, collapsed lung, white blood cell "disease" and Lord only knows.  All is good now.  Will be making a million apts tomorrow,  Got home and checked emails saw your well wishes and Edris emails I felt so blessed to have all of you.  I am fine now and will give you the wicked details tomorrow.  I AM SORRY I didn't get to you but I couldn't leave bed and my cell phone didn't work there.  Again feeling warm and fuzzy because of all you wonderful friends. Love you all muchly!

Oh Patty (((Patty))), I am so glad you're back!!!  I was soooo worried about you - right now I'm crying tears of joy that you're ok - well maybe not all "ok" but still among the living.  Just rest and recover and when you feel strong enough, give us the blow-by-blow.  It sounds like you've been through hell and back.

We all missed you, my friend!  

Love,

Eldri

Please don't take this as me pushing for you to post. I'm hoping you are still recovering from everything you went through at home, catching up on your sleep, and dealing with all of those appointments you said you needed to make. Just want you to know I'm keeping my fingers, eyes, and toes crossed for you that the worst is behind you now. Be well Patti!

You are so sweet and I tuly truly am humbled that I have the good wishes of so many.  I have been slow to get back on the boards, I have been pooped more just getting my mind back into the game.  I have most of my appointments scheduled, having problems with the hematology unit but have just passed that off to my primary physician who also happens to be president of the University *hospital is a teaching hospital, so I should have trump card.  Politics of who refers whom and a battle axe of a scheduling nurse.  4 calls on my part and I gave up this evening and just sent email to my PCP tonight so will see what happens.

I am finished with chemo...  (Good Lord Willing)  I had 2 cat scans and multiple xrays during the hospital stay so feeling pretty hopeful that there is nothing lurking and growing at least not at this point.  I have a PET scan scheduled and 1st follow up after chemo scheduled mid Dec.  Will see Oncologist as post hospital visit on Halloween and my PCP who wants me to have normal stuff done like mammo and colonscopy...   Heart Dr. who thinks I may still be ok on the heart problems even though I had some issues in the hospital.  I choose to believe it is just a chemo thing...  They wanted to make me use a walker and I decided no...   I then have PET and blood work for my first post chemo check up in Mid Dec (hopefully my first NED..  Fingers crossed)

Boy, I tell you I was on a trip.  7 days in ICU and I thought I was with my mother in law at a trailer park in the desert (no clue what that means).  I decided to take off walking and fell and cut myself up...  I would not have wanted to be my nurse but you know what, I truly LOVED my nurses and doctors.  They are special and kind people.  

So all in all I was blessed one more time.  I feel incredibly lucky.  I couldn't wear my wig so was called sir a couple of time...   gotta marker and painted a bow on my head....   with the female sign by it..     I did look pretty rough, I must admit.  

I was so blown away to come back here and see all the kindness.  Good lord, I felt so wonderful and like I said, humbled. You guys are the absolute best.  I again want to thank all of you and let you know your prayers and love are not wasted but very much appreciated and needed.  Love to all... Patty
