Hello it's me Dawn and yes I am on drugs!

So Nate made it to the rig this morning and I have been instructed to continue the blog in his absence. I am not even going to try and compare to him, I have finished reading everything he has written and I have to say I enjoyed the journey through his words!

This has been quite a ride! I am sitting here at the computer in my kitchen while IV antibiotics are being pushed into my veins, weird right? Yesterday as Nate said they inserted a Picc Line which is an IV that runs up my arm and into my chest, it will stay in for a course of 2 weeks. Wow I feel weird pushing drugs into my own veins! I am a bit frustrated by this set back but it is what it is right. I expected to go into the hospital yesterday and get my stitches removed and go home and scrub my head, I just want a normal shower. Can you smell me? JK I have mastered the sponge shower process, I am just sick of it! I feel amazing otherwise, it just blows my mind that only 14 days ago I was having my head cut into. This experience has taught me so much and humbled me emensly. To feel the perfection of what God created when He created us is awesome! I have felt so much love and support I am just wrapped in it! I cant say enough good things about my doctors and the staff at MD Anderson, I felt like I was on a Southwest flight, everyone is always so happy and friendly. So overall this was a good experience, now I wouldn't suggest trying it for yourself though.
Where to go from here? Well I must continue to ask for prayer concerning this infection. I am to find out on Monday exactly what kind of staph it is. They are growing it as we speak. So I am hoping that they will call and say that is wasn't as serious as they thought and to come in and get the Picc Line removed. So pray hard with me! Well I must go and change my IV bottle to med #2 now. A great night to all until I write again!
