What next. That is normal and since I'm apparently getting better the steroids are now every 12 hours instead of 8. Maybe I can go home tomorrow, but until the blood sugar is down - and the steroids can stop, I fear not tomorrow.

At least I feel better as long as they keep the O coming and pumping the other stuff in. That's something to hang on.

Hopefully I will get some sleep tonight. Later mutants! You're powerful medicine, that's for sure.

You are funny, I thought people caught MRSA in hospitals. Not that patients brought it in. Glad to see Steve is full of wit once again.
Where is everyone today? This has to be the fewest posts on a day in a long time.

Steve,

So sorry to hear you are going to be hospitalized. Do what the doctor ordered.

AND, please don't chase the nurses. If you caught one you wouldn't know what to do anyhow!

Mmm-mmmm! Cold eggs and no bacon! Great hospital breakfast. They wanna make sure you wanna get well and get the heck outa there!

Which you do, no doubt. Although, if you're in there, Annie can't make you wash the dishes. Some consolation.

Cheers, Steve, and keep takin' that big O!

Thanks Jeff - the nurses pool is running a pool on when I go home. There is no money on today. some action on tomorrow.

And you were right - for hospital bacon, it was pretty good. That will lift the spirits - but didn't tip the odds. Oh well...

More to follow.

Glad you're getting better Steve! I'm behind on pages, so hope this not redundant. As a person with relatives in Medicine, FLUSHOT!!! Also graduated in '66', Navy in '69', shots for every known disease I think. Was in Sub's, and illness wasn't allowed (captains orders). The shots, as all things in life have neg and pos issues.

PS: Getting much closer to RVdom. Serious buyer for boat, going to Tampa show this Fri. Think good thoughts!!

Mike - is this the same buyer with a closing in March or perhaps April? All good for sure!

Enjoy the show - one journey is ending and new one begins - of course both are part of your grand journey. The rainbow awaits!

That hospital seems to have a mutant in the kitchen, Steve.
Everyone tells me you need to watch out when in hospital, as they are so understaffed. Mistakes are inevitable. Keep track of your meds!

I am so ready to take off and go on a relaxing RV camping trip. C'mon Spring!!This winter, which I thought wouldn't be so bad since I am working in the cold, has become a stressful, locked inside, too much to do, neverending season.
Although we will not be going to GC, we will be going mushrooming and camping.
C'mon Spring!!!

Yes same buyer. Brought his Sister & BIL by to see it last SaT. Also got a call from another potential who looked at it last month, and wants to come back over (lives in Jacksonville), with Captain friend next week. Asked how long we would need to move off! Also lots of interest in our website (dualdreams.wordpress.com). Take a look. Give you something to read till they kick you out of hospital!! Get better buddy, we STMs need your guidance.
