Well I am still quite puny, but I achieved another milestone: I got released from Home Health Care! I celebrated by making breakfast for myself for the first time in too long a time, and boy was it good: chicken sausage links, eggs, hash browns, toast, and fresh-pressed apple juice.
My new mantra has been "do it myself." Just trying to do basic self-care (bathing, dressing, and meals) is exhausting exercise at this point, so it pushes me enough to keep me going forward.
I remain pukey and a tad dehydrated, but all my bloodwork is good, and I started getting Mr. Puffy injections again. So even though it's slow-going, I'm looking forward to feeling a little better each and every day!
