I am now at Maine Med, where I will be on hospitalized bed rest for at least another month and half, possibly more. Although the hospital setting can be alarming, I must admit, there is a part of me that feels so safe and relieved to be here.
- I have a beautiful private room.
- There is an extremely caring nursing staff that are taking good care of me.
- The Hi Risk Doctors are experts.
- I have cable. Better yet, there are English speaking channels.
- I can order off the menu any meal I want. And, I can read every item and don't have to use my translator.
- There are no lizards roaming around this hospital.
- I can take 1 1hour wheel chair ride a day. I am considering coordinating wheelchair races with the other ladies here.
- I don't have to wear anything but pajamas all day long.
- I will be an expert in day time soap opera television.
- I have a beautiful view of the changing foliage out my window.
- My godson, Liam, runs around the room and hall saying 'Auntie Kully' repeatedly and makes all around him smile and laugh. I think he should pursue a career in hospital therapy.
I don't know what I would do without my friends and family. You know who you are...my room is cozy, I have everything I need here, your support means the world to me, and I count the minutes until your visits. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
The only thing that breaks my heart is leaving Rich behind. I am worried about him, he is worried about me, and we are both extremely worried about our two healthy beautiful boys. As hard as this is, we know that I am getting the best care possible.
