So. The infectious diseases team hold the strong opinion that I should be cut open and drained.
And the obstetrics team seem to think that cutting open a uterus that has been through what mine has been through is just asking for trouble. The obstetrics team also seems to understand that although I am not ready to make the decision about having more babies – I am also not ready to have that choice taken away from me.
So they have decided to change to a funky new antibiotic, increase the dose of another one, and just keep pumping me full of drugs until I start to feel better.
But I am expecting that won’t be any time soon. Today was a nasty shock. Again I went from perfectly fine, to very, very sick in about 30 minutes. Shaking and sweating and sobbing and hallucinating. After my fever had started to break, it was measured at 39.9. Finally, I think my doctor is realising that I am not getting better quickly. And no, I won’t be going home tomorrow.
So while I am loving the visitors (really really), not knowing when I am going to have one of these attacks is quite scary, and it’s not the sort of thing that is fun to watch, so I think it might be best to give me a call before you come.
As of right now, I am feeling fine – but for most of today I have been feeling extremely poorly. If I continue to feel as well as I do right now, party in my room tomorrow 😉

Glad to hear you’re feeling fine at the moment, and I hope it stays that way!
Sending you big hugs and hoping the antibiotics work really well. Also hoping you have a good restful sleep tonight 🙂
Lots of love,
Ali & Mikey xx
Wishing you the best for a full quick recovery. I hope thats the last of the nasty shocks.
Ive been staying away just for now because of a cold and cough dragging on – mild but I dont want to risk sharing.
Im sending lots of good karma your way. It sucks to have the option of whether or not to have another baby taken away, which happened to a very good friend.
Wish I could help you more.
No, you dont know me. Im a brief note in your blog-life today because you have coincidentally popped into mine the last 2 days.
Im living in the past of the Sticks & String podcast – listening from the beginning to current times (slowly). Im currently listening to 2009. Your laughing voice was making me smile last night as you spoke from the 2009 WWKIP event.
Tonight I was off to try to catch up on the Show notes a bit – and your name on the most recent show notes caught my eye and my curiosity. So I traveled here to your blog.
Your current times are…momentous.
May I just wish you and yours renewed good health, healing sleep, gentle joy, and support from many sources for your already evident strength of spirit.
Blessings be to you and yours.
In my minds eye Lara, I am keeping you in the palest, delicate rainbow bubble, its a bubble of healing and prtection :0) I send healing energy to you often, I havent been sleeping well and you have come to mind in the middle of the night too, so I send healing then. Oh boy, I may as well put you on a white light drip my friend:0)
May you continue to feel better and stay fine . .
Love to all of you X X X X
Just piling on the hugs.
Thinking of you. Hope the drugs do the job on the ooze.
Im so sorry you are still feeling crook Lara. I hope those antibiotics can do their job and terminate all those bacteria. BTW, would you like me to pick up any probiotics for your tummy to bring to you?
