A Special Visit

It had been 3 full days since I last saw my baby girl. Amy brought her to see me today. I'm able to move around the hosptal, so we met in the lobby to keep Miss Thing off the floors with patients. We spent about 45 minutes together, and it was ajoy for me.

As for my health, hey struck a significant blow against my anemia yesterday when I received 2 units of blood. We are narrowing down the cause of the anemia which may be related to a drug I was on for over a month recently. The problem is it takes 4 months to produce a red blood cell, so e have a way to go to know if we got it.

As for my foot, the infectous disease specialist has gone from a shotgun antibiotic method to a sniper rifle. By this I mean he was throwing a lot at it, knowing some would hit, but know he knows exactly what he needs to target, so e are on one specific IV antibiotic and I will definitely have to continue for 6 weeks after I am discharged.

We still don't know when that will be, but we are hopeful it will be before Tuesday so we can make our trip to Orlando for Amy's sister's wedding next weekend. If we can go, we will be taking it very easy and we don't know what my mobility will be like but it will involve crutches and maybe a cast.

What a precious set of pictures. Although most people would look horrible after being in the hospital for 3 days, you look very well in these pics! Daddyhood suits you well - and I am sure LynnMarie thinks so, too!
