Hello illustrious tumblr community! This is Phoenix’s sister once again writing to you guys on her behalf. She is back in the hospital and will once again need the well wishes and thoughts sent to her, from all of you.
She realizes that you have not heard from her in a very long time and wishes to apologize to her faithful followers. She was sick for a while leading up to her admission into the hospital, but true to her stubborn nature, kept thinking that if she could just get a little rest, everything would be alright. Ummmmm no Phoenix!!!! Finally, her pain tolerance levels were exceeded and she decided it might be time to take that trip.
Her first few days in were spent battling two separate infections, which was cause for just a tad of confusion among the doctors, which in turn resulted in a several different medication cocktails.
She had additional surgery done to her feet last week, and at the moment, has pretty good mobility in her hands this week (last week there was a lot of swelling due to infection and water retention).
True to last time, the doctors are still not sure what the cause of everything is, but several stabs and guesstations (I know, I know, that is so not a word) have been made…lupus has been tossed around, also an extremely rare case of ulcerative colitis, and then a combination of both…and the doctors I admire the most are those that just admit that they don’t know what the hell is going on.
But ever true to her nature and character, her spirits are high. She finally harassed me into getting on here and putting out a post, so you guys wouldn’t think that she had forgotten about her beloved tumblr friends and comrades.
Hopefully the hospital stay will not be nearly as long as last time, but like before, I will do my best to keep you all updated an abreast of the current situation.
