10/5 Mon Update: Moving this week to Santa Clara Valley Medical Center for acute rehab.
We’re just waiting for the stars to align as there’s a number of things that have to happen. I’m bummed it’s far from SF and all my tribe, but it’s hands down the best rehab facility for my injury.
Other than that I’m just hanging out here at UCSF waiting for the call up to Santa Clara. Best estimate ……. midweek?
That will last 4-6 weeks. After that it looks like I’m headed to Fresno for a number of months to do long-term rehab at my parents home.
I got a severe infection yesterday and that sucked. Turns out it was a UTI, except worse. (Yes for all of you that are going to ask: I am drinking cranberry juice ? tho it’s more a preventative measure than a fixer.) I’ll spare the gory details, but I was almost septic and hit a 104.3° temperature, highest my nurse has seen. I actually think it was a good thing, because I’ve had this watermelon baby distention = bloated belly since the beginning. But thru this experience I’ve released a TON of various liquids and the watermelon baby has decreased significantly…finally.
**Just got an ultrasound as I was typing. No blood clots in the legs. Good news! Also, I’m not pregnant.
That’s the latest!
