I have run out of patience. I am sick of being sick. I want this picc line out of my arm. I hate changing my iv bag everyday. I am sick of the taste of saline solution, and I am tired of Mt. Dew not tasting the way it is supposed to. If I have to go to IMC one for time it will be to soon, to soon is 11/3 when I have a CT scan and an appointment with my neurosurgeon. Luckily there are a few things in my life to live for, Bryon, Mom, Dad, the brothers, the chance of being able to stop antibiotics on 11/5, eating my first party pizza since Sept. reconnecting with old friends Chelsey and Angela, Top Chef, and the dream that my hair will grow back in.

I love Birthdays and Donations

Yesterday was my Birthday. I turned 27. I wanted to skip this year, but my mom and Bryon made it a good day. I feel so sick since I got out of the hospital, I am on an IV antibiotic that is to blame, it makes almost everything smell bad and taste even worse. I am surviving this week on bananas and cherry seven up last week it was mt. dew and bananas. Thank you to everyone for the birthday wishes and the donations. They are helping so much.

He sensed worry could be strength

Holly broke out of the hospital on Thursday around 3:30 PM. As the driver, I was her lone accomplice. We had a decent, sleep-deprived weekend in West Point. We switched out her antibiotic that's being pumped into her veins 24/7 via a portable IV kept in a fanny pack and accompanying her everywhere she goes. The meds keep her feeling nauseous all the time with other undesireable side-effects. Only about 30 days left of that and she can be IV-free.

As I'm sure you know she's been unable to work for the past couple of months and counting. On top of that her meds are quite an expense. Last I counted she was taking seven different prescriptions, not including the constant antibiotics. And they're not cheap. We very much appreciate all who have helped out in this very difficult time. And while it's not fun to ask for more help and certainly not something I look forward to doing, it seems necessary today.

If anyone can throw us a bone and help us pay for some of Holly's medications and other expenses now would be a really, really, REALLY great time to do so.

So thanks again to all who have supported us through this and Holly should be posting again very soon.

I'm Out

Miles is taking care of me and I am drinking mt. dew and eating toast. Post to come later when I get the strength. Thank You everyone for your concern and love, hopefully it will be smooth sailing from here. If not well I can't promise I won't go crazy.
