Came from "Vacation"

I just came from a weeklong "vacation". My room was airconditioned, had its own comfort room, well-lit, and I could call for "service" anytime. My bed can even be raised or lowered. I was served food 6 times a day.

You guessed right. I did not stay in a hotel room but a hospital room. I underwent all sort of tests - daily CBC, two x-rays, 1 city scan, 1 ultrasound. I was visited daily by my doctor. On my last day, a G.I. specialist went to see me. She said I have air in my billary tree but she does not recommend medication nor any intervention. What she was more concerned about was the presence of lymph nodes, one as big as 5.5 cm. They have to be biopsied to determine if they are tumors or not.

The official reason for my being admitted is that I have pneumonia. It turned out that the real culprit is my multiple myeloma causing haziness in my lung xrays. And my rib cage has collapsed causing me severe pain.

Except for the first night, mom stayed with me the whole time. My son would come from time to time to bring stuff from home. I was visited at different times by my older brother and his wife, and by my sister.

I finished reading a book (a lousy one), solved Sudoku puzzles, watched TV including a Piolo Pascual and Regine Velasquez movie. Of course, I'm glad that I did not miss "100 Days to Heaven".

Because of my being in the hospital, I was not able to do one report. When I asked the Client about it, she said it is already completed and submitted to end-Client. Anyway, there will always be a next time, she said.

I am working on a report which is due next week. They are asking for a presentation but mom did not allow me because I will be again exposed. My immune system is down so I really have to wear my mask. Someone else would do the presentation but I am committed to finish the report by Sunday or Monday at the latest.

This late afternoon, I edited a short report. It's already paid for so I'm glad to deduct from my advances.

My friend gifted me with a new cane. How nice of her! God bless her.

Lord, I offer this pain to all those who are suffering.
