today was a much better day.
it started with not having a fever and got better when i got out of bed. up until today, every time i stood up, i would instantly void my bladder into my diaper. today, that did not happen.
the fluid that was drained was putting so much pressure on my bladder that there was no way i could control it. now with the fluid gone, i can. and that made my day.
i still have the occasional stress squirt, and that is okay for now.
my temperature has been at or below normal all day long.
my surgeon wants to wait for the culture results before making any decision about discharging me. i may have to have another ct scan to confirm that the fluid is gone.
mybest guess is that i will spend monday night here. things are looking up.
