I am now on hospice and preparing to die. on october 10 I spiked a fever & went to the hospital. I was also in extreme pain. I had a blood infection & scans revealed my gallbladder burst and I had necrosed tissue. i was able to transfer to the picu. after debate a drain was placed to remove leaking fluid from my gallbladder. really helped my bloating. I am on an i.v. pca dilaudid drip to control pain. I haven't been off the vent in a month due to infection issues. I was determined too high risk for surgery and am home on hospice. my temperature is 100.5 which means the blood infection may be returning. i will not treat it (came from gallbladder leak originally) if it returns. I know there is life after death & I have great things waiting. I have a post prepared that will be put up by family after I die. thank you for all your support. I ask for prayers for my family. if you'd like to send a card, you can message me for my address.
