Conservative Management

I had a visit from Dr. Karlen, an OB/GYN specialist, objective voice and second opinion today. He agreed with the infectious disease doc that my body seems to be responding well to the Tigecycline.

We all agree on conservative management, that is, since my body seems to be responding well, my white counts are good and I'm afebrile (no fever), surgery will not be necessary; they will continue to treat me with oral antibiotics...which means...

I can GO HOME!!!!

Two of my favorite people on 2 East: (from left) Kelly and Lauren

It's good because I've blown out my second vein since I came here this morning. If I never see another needle for the rest of my life, I will be a happy woman!

It's also good because maybe, just maybe....I can start training in a week or so. We'll see.

TTFN - happy girl!


  1. Bless your soul, Shannon. Oh, happy day.
    it would appear your inner tigress came through for you!

  2. Appropriately enough, at my local hospital 2 East is the Psych ward...
