I was feeling a little over-blogged that last day or so, not to mention there had not been much new news to report. In addition, I found some random live tv streaming video site on the internet and spent the last two nights watching the NBA all-star game events. It was definitely worth all the viruses and spam that I probably infected my computer with in order to download the required software. Especially, considering Dwyane Wade won the MVP. I'm not worried, one trip to the Apple store and all my problems will go away.
As I write this, Elana is about 20 minutes into a ketamine infusion treatment. This infusion will take about 2 hours and will wipe Elana out for most of the day. This is standard protocol for Coma patients. Usually, the day before the patient is released from the hospital, Dr. Cantu will administer a booster infusion to help remind the brain that it needs to shut off the pain alarm. It is not enough to injure the RSD, we must keep beating on it until it is in full submission. At least that is the hope. Elana will probably have another 6 or so infusions over the next 3 months in order to keep the RSD at bay.
We are so close to leaving I can smell it. Tomorrow morning, Elana will be released from the hospital and after a night of rest in the hotel, we will fly back home on Wednesday. For all the right reasons, I am looking to retire my blogging jersey very soon.
