One week today

It's been one week today since Marco came home. First couple of days he couldn't eat to much and he would get full with only just a little food. But he has gradually started to eat more which is good. So he has lost some weight, he finally shaved, his hair has been growing at an alarming rate....if Micheal Jackson was alive he could of auditioned for a wolf part or something ...lol.


One of the medications will be finishing tomorrow and two other ones will be done in 7 more days. Frustration starts to kick in and it is understandable ....leaving the damn hospital only to continue hospital hours in your own home sucks.

Tomorrow we will be going to COH to have them remove all 33 staples on his left side and hopefully take out the drainage tube he still has in place. Which we think may be the cause of added pain to that area. A CT Scan will also be done to check his lungs and blood drawn for lab work. This infection has really made us uneasy and this time around was really hard for a speedy recovery but slowly but surely.

As for now he is still on a slight isolation and getting his rest. Momma M and the girls came this weekend and even though they stayed for about an hour :) she made a pot of caldo de pollo which was yummy. Marco seemed a little tired but talk a little then went to rest. Thank you for the visit and understanding that he still needs his most needed rest to fully recover.

It's overwhelming and scary at times to see everything he goes through. From the surgery, the side affects of all the medication which he needs so he doesn't feel the pain, the severe infection he had and to deal with all the chills and fevers and come home to more medication and side affects as well with hardly any rest for now.

One day at a time.......

I think Michael Jackson would have nothing on us...Marco: the wolf and we'll be the zombies! All we need is to practice our Thriller moves. Really, I can picture it.

Happy to hear you are managing day to day and staying strong Marco.
