Ivy comes off today. It’s funny. I have mixed feelings about it. You’d think I’d be ready to jump up and down with joy over disconnecting the IV tube for good later today but I’m not. Yet.
The last time the IV was unhooked I started getting symptoms again so that’s making me feel a little tentative about the whole ordeal actually being over. I’ve been on this superstrong liquid antibiotic cocktail for about six weeks and even though it’s an inconvenience it’s also a bit of a security blanket. I know that it’s making me well. So how will I know if I’m actually cured? Well, I wait and see, that’s how. No scan, no test, no doctor appointment until next week. That’s how Dr. Hernandez and his team have planned it.
I feel good. If not for my lower than usual stamina, I’d pronounce myself back to normal. And I’m working on the stamina thing, getting out of my PJs and doing a little more every day. This weekend Derek’s second bike show goes in KW and I’ll be there at times, with a motel room nearby for respites when they’re needed. I’m planning to get back to work soon – 2 months after I last turned on a microphone. Mild temps this week are getting me excited about getting my motorcycle out in the months to come. Life is good. Ivy, thanks for all you’ve done but I’m really hoping that this time, when I unhook you, you’ll be out of my life for good.
