"I'm Tired of Being Here...."

....seems to be the quote of the day. Cabin fever has hit with a vengence! Even her cool electronic bed that goes up and down and up and down and up and down is no longer interesting. She is SO ready to go home, but it doesn't seem like that will be an option until tomorrow evening at the very earliest (if we're lucky), probably more like sometime Friday. They will be coming in the next few minutes to change her packing and she's getting more nervous by the minute. I keep telling her she will have some medicine in her IV to help with the pain and make her sleepy(morphine), but she's not convinced. For now, we're just hanging out and getting her antibiotics. Judging from the size of the knot on her shoulder, which has gotten bigger throughout the day, a trip to the OR is looking more and more likely. Compared to yesterday, she is feeling much better. She is able to move her neck and shoulder more and the redness is much better, but the area of the abscess is still very painful to touch. We still have 2 more doses of antibiotics before the surgeons come back in the morning to check her out and decide what we are going to do. We're keeping our fingers crossed.....

They are walking in the room as I type to give her the morphine. I'll keep you posted...
