Sleepless in Atlanta

Its 4:30 a m and I haven't been able to get even a minute of sleep. My whole body is itching and I've got tubes sticking out of all parts of my body. My nose is stuffed up and ny mouth and throat are dried out from having to breath through them. I'm coughing almost non stop trying to get this gook out of my lungs.

My Dsd is staying with me tonight and I'm keeping him awake too. I'm sorry. He just doesn't undertstand why I just can't lie down and go to sleep. I had hoped writing some would help but, it has not.

He took me on a tour of the hospital hoping it would help but it didn't either. They can't give me anything tio help me to sleep because of the pain killer incidents. So I suffer and so coes anyone around me. I wish things were different. I know that a donor is on average about two more years away.

tomorrow, correction later today I'm going to try to go to the chapel for the 11 am Mass. I feel good enough to do this now but I'll have to see how am doing then.

If anyone is reading this blog, please give me some comments. I would really like that.

It's 5 am now and they are about to come in and take vitals, check my blood sugar and do dressing changes. I'll sign off for now.

It looks to me like a bunch of people are reading it. You know you have a donor sitting her keeping a kidney working for you. You say the word and I'll start the testing. Mark son I dont NEED the kidney. Im not sure if they will do it but we can try.

It's nice to be able to read how you are progressing. I will do whatever I need to help get you back on the PortersBoard. You know my email.

I hope and trust as does everyone that knows you that things will progress they way it is intended. You have a lot more to do yet and I appreciate you for your thoughts and input.

Get well and until then... keep writing. :)
