Home Again~OneZillionOne

Our thanks to all for the prayers and purrs that came our way, the infections are not cleared up, our options are a bit more limited. Keep praying please.

The surgery to get the infected line out went well..
After that it all I could do, to not hurt someone was all down hill..
My veins keep “blowing” as soon as an IV was started, likely because the IV medicine I had been on, Vancomycin is very toxic…

So after the nurses declined to start another IV the doc was called..
Conversation went kinda like this, Doc~well she needs 2 more weeks of IV vancomycin
Nurse~ she doesn’t have any veins left, she is pretty beat up..
Doc~ well she needs it..
Nurse~ well you want I should have her drink it?
I was released last night.. on oral zyvox, and cipro..

Doc said to me… too bad you have bad veins.. I was like yeah…I really enjoyed all 37 times they attempted to start IV’s.. To bad I ran out of veins..
The doc just looked at me..
I think it’s too bad that he has no sense of humor..
The boys were lonely and mad while I was away playing in the hospital..

Tigger is sitting on my lap, and the brats are on top of the bookcase or on TheMasterOfTheUniverses office chair..
Special Thanks to all our friends at the Cat Blogosphere!

Wednesday Hero~Sgt. Kenneth J. Schall

Sgt. Kenneth J. Schall
Sgt. Kenneth J. Schall
22 years old from Peoria, Arizona
2nd Battalion, 70th Armor Regiment, 3rd Brigade, 1st Armored Division
May 22, 2005
U.S. Army

“It was very tough not to be touched by him in some way,” said Terri Schall, Sgt. Kenneth Schall’s mother.

Kenneth Schall was enrolled at Glendale Community College and was studying to become a history teacher when the country was attacked on September 11, 2001. The event spurred him to join the Army. He served a four and a half month tour in Iraq in 2004 and returned in February of 2005.

Terri Schall last spoke to her son on Mother’s Day in 2005. “He sounded great — tired — but he said he was doing OK”, she said. Sgt. Kenneth Schall died when the Humvee he was riding in was involved in an accident in Yusafiyah, Iraq.

Along with his mother, Sgt. Schall is survived by his father and two younger siblings.

These brave men and women sacrifice so much in their lives so that others may enjoy the freedoms we get to enjoy everyday. For that, I am proud to call them Hero.
We Should Not Only Mourn These Men And Women Who Died, We Should Also Thank God That Such People Lived
