Gosh today is a day where I have felt totally wiped out. Counts are definitely at zero now.
I woke, as usual, at 4am, dozed on and off until 7am, had breakfast and a shower etc and then went back to bed from around 10am-12.30pm! Up for some tomato soup and half a yoghurt and then back to sleep for another 2 hours to be woken by a room full of consultants, nurses etc!!!
And they have definitely given me a reality check. Apparently I shouldn’t even begin to expect my figures to go up again until Friday at the earliest. And if they don’t go up until Saturday, not to be surprised. So my idea that perhaps if I am a miracle worker, they might start to go up tomorrow or Wednesday, is totally unrealistic and doomed to the depths of misery. Still, I suppose, it’s better to be told that outright, than to be given hope that it might happen earlier and then find each day depressing.
But the good news, was that he did say, that assuming I DON’T get an infection before then, that I could well be talking to them about going home a week today. I think that might mean the Tuesday or Wednesday, and that would be great. I can’t imagine having to spend another week here, but if it has to be, I suppose it has to be. I sort of knew it the more all of you have posted your experiences on fb and on here, but I had hoped I’d got it wrong.
Wow, just realised I’ve stayed awake for over an hour and a half….pretty good going for me, but time for another snooze now I think……!!
