A girl can dream... :)

This beach is to the right of the Jetty Motel in Cape May, NJ. It is the last strip of oceanside beach in the southern most tip of the state. Around the other side of the lighthouse is Sunset Beach on the Delaware Bay side. I'd give anything to be there now!

I love to look at this beach at different times of the day. The sunsets are pretty. This is definitely one of my favorite beaches to swim at. :)

I will be back to post about everything soon.

That looks so peaceful, Seaspray. I hope you are resting and feeling better. It's good to see you're back and writing. You had us pretty worried, and I would have called you! I still might. Check your email'll see. Follow doctor's orders, and I mean to the letter!

Good morning Chrysalis Angel!

I haven't done anything but blog, read, sleep and watch tv.

I have so much to do and so many projects calling me to get done. I haven't even gone out for the final push to finish getting the pool water ready. Right there...the fact that I don't have the pool open yet tells you how I feel.

I just don't have the energy. Being stented doesn't usually do this to me. So I think it is a combination of having been so sick, getting hardly any rest in the hospital and my body fighting this pre-sepsis infection. I know my white count was down in the 8,000 range when I was discharged and I finally stopped spiking fevers.

Then I had four doses of vicodin which gave me horrible nausea and diarrhea Wednesday night and Thursday. Back on Percocet and that stopped...THANK GOD!!! Keflex might be affecting me intestinally...a bit...not sure.

I keep trying to regulate my meds and am going to try to get to 7am, 1p,7 and 11 or 12 for the Keflex and 7a, 3p and 11p for the pyridium. I keep missing my times but will start setting my phone clock.

I am confused about being able to swim. I don't have energy yet... which surprises me.

I asked urodoc if I could swim and I think he said, "you have an infection...not for a couple of days."

Then yesterday I got thinking about whether or not I should wait longer or not (assuming I have the energy anyway)and even if I just float.

So I called the office yesterday and via the nurse said his partner said to do whatever he said. So then I guess it should be fine by tomorrow-Sunday.

The nurse though said she didn't know if it is worth it if I have this infection because you can get fungus infections under your bathing suit (never had THAT happen)and with chlorine and other things maybe introduce infection up there.

But isn't it a one way street down there and fluids don't go up in you?

Then I am thinking...well...even though I am better...I am still treating the infection. Does lowering my body temp through being in water cause my body to be more challenged in fighting the infection.

Knowing me and how miserable I am when I am hot (still don't have a/c in)when I hit the water...I think my body will go "Ahhhhh, thank u, thank u and thank u!" and have more energy to fight because it feels better and not stressed from the heat.

That's in SeaSpray's world anyway.

If anyone knows the answer to this, I would greatly appreciate hearing it.

I feel bad about something while urodoc was discharging me. I was whiney about having to stay until evening to get one last dose of Rocephin he decided to give me. He is such a good doctor, takes good care of me. It could've been much worse and people have it worse and here I am whining cause I had to stay longer. UGH! SeaSpray! I am pretty sure he said no gardening for a couple of days and then no swimming for a couple of days.

This last hospital stay is really going to be expensive for us even though we have insurance. :(

I need to find a way to make money at home. And when I do go back into the work force...well medical bills, medical bills, medical bills...and a new vehicle.

I am hoping this last thing will be easily corrected. I will blog about it soon.

I would love a call from you. Yes...I will check my e-mail. :)

Have a great day! :)
