Well I went to my appt and just like I thought my doctor is extending my abx to 2 more weeks! I thought it was going to be for just one more week so I was a little surprised when he said 2 but I'm fine with it as long as I feel better.
He did switch up my schedule a little bit so I could get more sleep which I appreciate! Plus he added an abx so now I am on 3 total. Ceftazidime and Azactam every 8hrs and Amikacin every 24hrs. So its a really do-able schedule and I am not anywhere near as tired as I was last week.
After the first day of all 3 abx I already felt tons better and noticed a vast improvement to my SOB! The only con to this whole 3 abx thing is it is really making me itchy and I HATE being itchy!! When I am in the hospital I get IV Benadryl if I am itchy and at home I don't. Unfortunately PO Benadryl doesn't help at all so I am kind of just stuck here being miserable! :(
I got to visit with my cousin Maria the past few days cause her family was in town from NY so that was really nice. I hadn't seen her in over a year. I am used to seeing her a couple times a year with her coming here and me going there and this whole can't go anywhere cause I am on the transplant list is seriously putting a damper on my traveling schedule! I can't wait till I can once again go on vacation other than somewhere in the state of FL!! :)
I only have 3 more movies to go and I will have seen all 10 best picture nominees!! The Blind Side was amazing (knew it would be) and I really enjoyed Up in the Air (love me some George Clooney!) I didn't like The Hurt Locker really at all which is surprising cause I heard it was a good movie...it just really dragged on and I honestly was glad when it was over.
Well I am almost done with my last abx so I am going to bed soon. Danny and I and his brother and his brother's wife are all going to dinner tonight at a restaurant called Rum Runners. We have only been there once before on our first wedding anniversary but really liked it so it should be nice. I hope everyone has a great Valentine's Day and that you all spend it with someone special!! :)
