      • Thank you! t is so good to be home! My WBC shot up to 10,000 and my neutrophils hit the magical number of 500. They have a ways to go to be normal but I just need to be careful. I am laying on the couch, full and happy.

        My now former PCP did not really give discharge instructions except to follow up with my oncologist and called in two prescriptions for antibiotics the infectious disease doc wanted me to have. But she only gave me three days worth. The ID doc said she wanted me to do 10 days of outpatient antibiotics but my PCP subtracted days of inpatient antibiotics from that because she thought it excessive. Fortunately the ID doc stopped by before I left and gave an additional prescription to cover the whole time. On the plus side, I have learned a lot about neutrophils. I see the oncologist on Monday or Tuesday for follow up blood work.

        My diet needs to be low residue and germaphobic, so need to figure out what will work best for me. Nothing raw, nothing fermented, nothing too fibrous. Other than avoiding sugar, I am not going to worry about carbs too much but we naturally eat fairly low carb.

        • So nice to see that you're back home again. Could not get into my MDA account to respond earlier. Safe internet hugs.

            • I am not sure I am roaring back but I am trying. Six days confined to a small room and everything else has left me pretty weak. My sister and her husband are coming on Tuesday for a quick visit so I am doing what I can to get the house ready. E has taken on all of the shopping duties this week and so far all of the cooking.

              I am off work at least this next week, so hopefully that will help me get back to normal quicker. I have been having wonderful and healthy meals, so I have a good foundation to build on. Trying to keep mentally positive but there have been moments of darkness and fear.

              I hope everyone has (or had) an amazing Sunday!

              • So glad you have some more time to recover, and lots of healthy food to eat. We all know that E can handle the food requirements!

                  • Happy Thanksgiving!

                    I am feeling much better today! I am still building my stamina up but woke up feeling much more of my perky self! E and I are having a quiet dinner here since I did not think I would be up to a three hour car ride. Even feeling better, it would have been tough on me. We got a heritage turkey from a local butcher, who also raised it. I am looking forward to trying and seeing if it is better than your average organic turkey. It smells divine!

                    My sister and BIL drove up from D.C. on Tuesday. They are visiting my niece down there. It was a great visit! They got to meet E for the first time and loved him. Of course. He made us all an amazing meal too.

                          So very, very pleased that you have been released, are home, and eating well (popped into E's journal for food details). Hugs!
