Rhabdo update

I’m at the doctor now with good news! My CK (creatine kinese) level went from 56,000 down to 37,000. Down is good. He wants me down to a “semi-safe” level of 2,000 before I’m released. The only reason I’m not in the hospital is because I’m a great bargainer. Okay not really, but mainly because I’m only swelling in my arms and my bloodwork is “extremely” healthy for my age and diabetes issues. My kidney function was a little elevated but he’s not concerned since my urinalysis looked good.

Bad news is my port site in my hand that I nursed all night is useless. The vein collapsed. See my new hardware?

Now I’m reading a book and waiting for a cupcake.
