Am on treatment with IV antibiotics in hospital; feeling a little better, much happier now they’ve backed off the “oh, it’s a tumor” insistence. Honestly…. Just because I have HAD cancer doesn’t mean that an illness always IS cancer.
As it turns out, it’s probably the same flu that you and your kids have been fighting off. But my body isn’t as strong as it used to be, and it’s not fighting it off very well. My white blood cells are way down, I have very little energy to move about, and the fever is still at 103′ after six days. So I’ll be moving into the hospital for a few days for IV antibiotics and close monitoring.
I do have some good (and some scary) stories to tell, but forgive me if I’m not up to reliving them today.
Thanks for your sweet notes and expressions of concern. I debated whether or not to tell you … but I’ve always been honest with you, so why stop now?
