Easter Bunny Has A Warped Sense Of Humor

We are home safe and sound.

I will give you the Coles version today with more details throughout the week.

Sunday evening I went into Emergency due to swelling, redness and intense soreness surrounding my central line catheter. Things moved extremely quickly once I informed the hospital that I was a cancer patience undergoing chemotherapy. I had a bed within 10 minutes of walking in the door.

I was put on heavy-duty antibiotics just about immediately. The catheter was removed about 5 hours later at 2:30 in the morning. The doctors took cultures of the infection to find out exactly what it was.

Yesterday lab results came back indicating the type of infection but we had to wait until today for more lab results of whether the infection spread to my blood or not.

It had not therefore I was free to go. Music to my ears.

Thank you everyone for the lovely comments ... I look forward to catching up on all the news ... I'll be by to say 'hi' soon.
