Illness Update

So, I am still sick. Nice, huh? Well, last week I went back to the doctor and here is where I am today...

On Friday the doctor took some blood work and when I heard back from the doctor they said its no longer strep and its not mono. The trouble is an elevated liver count. They are running additional test for things like hepatitis, etc and they should have the additional results back in a week. In the meantime I am on prednisone. They say the prednisone should help me to feel better and more awake. So far I am barely staying awake. I do very little and I am exhausted. In the past week I have worked about 2 hours... and after the 2 hours I could barely keep my eyes open.

This isn't the first time I have had blood work come back with an elevated liver count so who knows what will come of it. I just ask that you keep me in your prayers and once I know more I will definitely let you know again.

However, I am still very lucky. I have the best friends anyone could ask for who have brought me soup and flowers. And I include the people I know from work in the friends category... they have kept up with my illness and have even sent me flowers! My boss has told me every time I have tried to work to go back home and get better. I can't ask for more. Want to see my flowers?? Check them out...
