Continued improvement

I was well enough yesterday to go over to my mom's with the girls for two hours (while G cleaned up yet another diaper disaster, on which more later). Today I sat at the sewing machine for a little while, dealt with some laundry from the diaper disaster, and then went over to Mom's again for our usual Sunday supper. That was the absolute limit of my endurance, and I'm now thoroughly wiped out, but it's more than I've been able to do since the infection took hold.

The low-grade fever is gone, I'm off the painkillers, and I'm feeling so much peppier. I still half-worry that it will come back when I finish out the antibiotics, but that's just because I can't quite fathom being fully well again after all this. Realistically, my odds are good, and I think I've dodged the D&C for now.

I'm so glad to read that you appear to be on the mend (knocking on wood for you). I really hope that continues and you get to enjoy some time as just Mama and not patient.

I am so glad you're feeling better. *fingers crossed* you can keep recovering quickly.

I just saw your comment on my blog, and I can't tell you how much it meant to me. I've felt an almost desperate need for others not to go through what I have. To know that you read what happened and it helped you is such a relief to me.

Please don't stop checking your temperatures for a while. Be very aware of any signs - my infection ended up being very deep seated in my cervix, where it continued to make me very ill. I'd feel great for a while after being off abx, then get worse again. Watch that, ok?
