A day of..... nothing!

Sooo... I guess I'll be on the computer all day, or watching tv, or walking the halls, because they can't do my desensitization today. :( It requires an extra staff member, because an RN has to sit with me through the entire procedure in case I have an allergic reaction, and they are short staffed today. They assure me that I will be desensitized tomorrow though, which means I'll be going home Thursday instead of tomorrow.

So I guess Jason and I will hang here for the day and maybe go out to dinner somewhere tonight. They are pretty cool about letting me off the floor for awhile if I have nothing going on.. and I don't. They have already done blood cultures, but ENT hasn't been in yet to get cultures of my sinuses. That will happen sometime today. I have a student nurse working with me today. Having been a student nurse myself, I think I'm a little more sympathetic to them than most patients. She's really good, and on top of things.. which I like. I also met one of the new transplant pulmonologists today. He seems to be on the same page as Dr. P., my regular pulmonologist, so thats' good.

I'll update more from this exciting place later. Right now, I have a cheese danish (and lots of insulin) to devour. :)

Dang, that really stinks! I just read on Nate's blog that he & Tricia will be Duke this afternoon for her bronchoscopy. Maybe you guys could get together??? Jsut a thought to try & kill some of your time. :o)

That stinks you have to wait an extra day...I hate when that happens!

To answer your question about Danny...no...its Grand Theft Auto 4!! Boy am I kicking myself in arse for getting him that (the ps3) for Christmas!! :)

Anyway, hang in there you will be feeling better in no time!

Oh yeah, one more thing. I have never heard of anyone needing to be desensitized before I read your blog. Are you allergic to all meds is that why they have to do that?

I hope you feel better soon and this takes care of your sinuses. I hate that you have to be allergic to so much, but hopefully this will buy you some time until your next surgery.

Did you see Nate, Tricia and Gwyneth when you were walking around? She's at Duke today and tomorrow.

I sure didn't Debbi. I couldn't leave the floor all day b/c I was waiting on the 3 different docs to come see me and to go get a CT of the sinuses and chest. I know Tricia was over here getting a bronch today, and it looked like from Nate's pics that he was in the admissions waiting room, but I didn't get down there. I think they are over in the clinic building tomorrow, so I'll miss them then too. :(
