I am now on a morphine pump so it's not my fault if certain things in this blog do not make sense. We have not received the biopsy results yet but the general consensus of the doctors is that I have disseminating Zoster virus, which is a fancy term for chicken pox. The deal is that you cannot catch shingles from chicken pox but you can catch chicken pox from shingles. So I gave myself chicken pox. I had chicken pox when I was in elementary school but having a bone marrow transplant causes one to lose any built up immunities. They are pretty painful in some places so they put me on a morphine pump this morning- they're not painful anymore. I'm still having fevers which we do not know the cause. Mouth sores are popping up and I do not have much of an appetite but I have not had any nausea yet (fingers crossed).
Michael has a cold so he cannot come see me but hopefully that will clear up soon. We have no idea when I will get out. They have to get the fevers to stop before we can consider that happening. We are just hoping that it is before Christmas.
Hope everyone is having a wonderful holiday season,
