Home again! It was a very short stay. I never got another fever so no antibiotics for me. Hurray! They gave me some blood, a prescription for stronger pain medication, and sent me on my way.
I'm not feeling 100% but I do have a bit more energy than before and it no longer hurts to swallow. My stomach is giving me some trouble but I have medication to help that too. I took one of the pain meds last night before bed and ended up having the most vivid dreams. Some were better than others. I woke up screaming at Isaiah at one point so I will not be taking them on a regular basis. But it did help with the pain and I did manage to sleep so I guess it was worth it on my end. Isaiah may disagree.
Now to rest and strengthen up before cycle #7.
