Sorry for not pulling the punches.
I'm just telling it like it is!
My post Go Shit In Your Hat gave you a status of my recent health woes with a few cartoons thrown in for comic relief.
Since that post and on this past Monday I was admitted to the VA's West Roxbury Hospital. It's been a roller coaster ride to say the least.
They are still not sure what is causing the water retention (edema). If that wasn't bad enough a nearly whole body encompassing rash has pervaded over me. The cause? - They haven't been able to figure that out either!
They have, however, ruled out the rash is a result of an allergic reaction to any of the meds they been giving me. I have lost six pounds since I was admitted on Monday- but that still puts me at an alarming 208 pounds! They ramped up the Lasex intravenious - so that weight should be going down quicker soon.
My overall health is good. I'm in no appreciable pain. The rash is not itchy at all (another mystery).
Beyond that, there really is much that I can add. Now that I know i have Internet access, I'll try to keep everyone up to snuff via a brief post like this one.
Also, I see no reason that that the next chapter of "The Quill and the Quire" cannot and will not be posted for Friday's scheduled post.
Wish me luck and pray hard to get me home sooner!
