Day 1 at home

Although it is SO great to be home, today was hard. Simple things like walking up the stairs take all of my energy. I couldn’t keep my lunch down, which brought back terrible memories and fears of the 10 or so days in a row I spent not keeping anything down before going to the hospital. Also, I had just taken a bunch of pills, including the steroids, which probably hadn’t gone through my system yet. Not sure what to do about that.

I go in tomorrow morning for another creatinine test, and then tomorrow afternoon for a doctor’s appointment. Pray that my creatinine level drops, instead of staying the same or increasing. Pray also for diligence for me as I am learning a new diet, taking pills all throughout the day, and keeping track of liquid input/output, blood pressure, and pulse regularly. I am also extremely weak, so pray that I can regain strength and muscle in my legs without overdoing it. And pray for my stomach – that it would behave itself and keep food down like any good stomach should. We were blessed this evening with a delicious dinner made by our friends, the Normans, and…so far, so good.

Oh, and it’s so great having my husband back. I missed him like crazy. I’m pretty sure I got the best one out there.
