Thank you all again for your comments on my last entry. I really feel wonderful support from the blogging community. I had made the best of plans but these are laid aside for right now. I was told this morning that I will have to be admitted into the hospital to start the isolation. I wish I could just run away back to home and let my mommy tuck me in. Don't you get those moments? Oh to be a little girl again. Of course, my mother just had her cataract removed in one eye today so we could just lay in bed together and be sick. *grins* I have talked to my mother who is home already and doing great. This procedure had to be done to an eye where she had an earlier emergency procedure done so I was hoping all would go smoothly for her which it has.
Now I am not worried about being alone although the room is going to be like a prison for a short while. I cannot go out and no one can come in. I am not worried about taking the radioactive therapy. What am I worried about? How as an addicted needleworker, I will get through a minimum oftwo days of not being able to stitch or quilt! I am not allowed to take along my needlework as they would have to dispose of it afterwards. I had so hoped I would not even have to be admitted. I had the idea of sitting in our spare bedroom here with my needle and thread, a pot of tea and the DVDs on my laptop.
The doctor says she thinks I should be able to go home sometime in the late morning or early afternoon on Thursday. Please keep your fingers crossed for me that it will be so and not longer? I have to wait until they register a legal amount of radioactive level to be allowed to leave the hospital and the first day it will be too high a dose. I kind of find it amusing that I don't use a microwave as I find the idea of nuking food unappealing. Now I am going to 'be nuked' myself but I know it is for my own good. I have found these first two days of testing easy as I know they are doing their best to make me healthy again.
I will be back again very soon and sharing more of the season and warm thoughts from my home...
