hi everyone,

well I have been awol on here because I have been in the hospital for 7 weeks. 3 weeks ICU, 1 week hosp, then rehab rest of the time. I had respitory failure.

it was crazy went to doc in november for what I thought was kidney stones, doc called ambulance, got to er..they put me out to do some tests and I wake up and it is december!!

They kept me out did two lung surgeries and kept me in ICU. I had no idea until they finally woke me up and they are like so young lady this is what we did. surreal to say the least. but I am back now. still not fully recovered but thank god for home care. I missed thanksgiving and christmas. so it seems weird that it is jan 2011 right now.

worse thing is I have a pinched nerve, and it has two fingers on my right had and my palm numb. I am right handed!! a little feaky too.

but I am healthier and breathing better than I have ever breathed so I am happy. it is good to be back on cake central. now to catch up on 7 weeks of posts and pics. icon_lol.gif

thanks guys. I still have months of physical therapy to do. using walker and wheelchair to get around. my leg muscles went to crap due to the lymphadema problem I have. but getting stronger everday. still on O2 continuosly and neb treatments every 6 hours.

kiddiekakes, I am so glad your hubby is better. I scared my hubby too. H1N1 is nothing to play around with. I got my vaccine for it thankfully. so mine was just double pneumonia. very scary time. I am just so glad your hubby is okay.
