Day 4 and some good news. My CK level dropped from 37,000 to 18,000!!! I’m almost home free. I will get my 2 liters of fluids today then I don’t have to be back until Tuesday!! I can go to work as long as I don’t do any lifting or pulling anything. I get my lovely friend, port, out of my arm. I can shower and wash my hair. I’m a little thrilled right now.
I did ask about running, because I have a brand new pair of shoes just waiting for me.
He laughed at me.
Then he said we will talk in one week and see where my CK level is then. His quote “if you get this muscle trauma spreading through your whole body, it will destroy your kidneys and you will die and we really don’t want that”.
My response “No, we don’t but thanks for including the “really” because you had a hesitancy in your voice as if you had to think about it”. Nothing like a dr with a sarcastic side bigger than mine.
So, here I am in my bat cave about to read a magazine and make a grocery list. My feet look huge!!
