@rosemarya thanks for your response, I greatly appreciated it! I just got out of the hospital again, round 3? I don’t know I’ve lost track. Spiked a high fever and sepsis so another ICU stay then another 10 days. I am fortunate to have a strong support system including a wonderful Unitarian minister who visits with me. I’m Jewish and Unitarian my husband is Unitarian. Actually the minister is the person who married my husband and I, so she has special meaning to us! As usual, tired of the hospital although the hospital itself is terrific. They have had meetings for staff on how to treat my rare illness and everyone seems to know what to do. Unheard of in this day and time of diminishing resources! Sometimes I feel like my body has betrayed me as I used to be so healthy and strong but it is what it is, I just need to learn to cope with it and have the best life possible, for myself and my husband. I struggle too with what my husband has to go through. He keeps telling me that that’s part of his life as my husband but I can see that we are both stressed. Still working with the medical teams on ways to get more stable and minimize the need for hospitalization. Anyway, that’s the update. I keep wondering if they begin to sound all alike, although it’s different each time, somewhat. I’m so glad you have your wonderful husband too and congratulations on your upcoming anniversary. I hope all is well with you and hope I don’t always have to start a conversation with a hospital update! Thank you for your kindness and I treasure the long distance hand squeeze! Sending my caring and all my best wishes. Rhoda.
