So much happens so quickly.
My fever is gone, yay. There was much speculation about where it was from, but all the cultures came back clear, so.
It isn’t from rejecting the synthetic bone material in the skull piece they are sure. I have no swelling there, no redness, so that’s all good.
I blew yet another IV, big fun. They brought a wizard in from her day off to work her magic to put another one in. Hopefully 5th time’s the charm.
I had a good night, slept 6 hours and woke up feeling great. Then I could feel my face swelling in real time. Not unexpected but there was some worry at first that it was an allergic reaction to the antibiotic or the pain meds, so that was a fun hour.
OT and PT don’t think it’s safe to release me home. I tried that walk like from the first surgery, and even with a walker, I’m too dizzy and weak. So disappointing!
So now the plan is rehab. These folks will send someone to interview me to see if we are a good fit.
Onward! Disa comes on the 7th and I want to see her so badly.
