Update on Hospital Visit

Hey All!

Hope this note finds you in good health and happiness.

I’m sure many of you have heard that I had a hospital stint earlier this week. Just want to let you know that I’m recovering quickly and will soon be back to the same quirky ‘Dee!

I also wanted to let you all know what exactly happened. Sunday night I went into the UCLA emergency room because I had a horrible pain and lump in my lower body.

I felt it eariler that week and the pain increased to the point of being paralyzing. I couldn’t walk or move. Saturday I went to an urgent care doctor who told me “i was fine” and gave me a prescription for a heavy pain killer and some antibiotics. Saturday night was a sleepless one full of pain that wasn’t being helped by the pills, so on Sunday my friend drove me to UCLA ER where I was immediately checked in by their helpful staff and told that I would be having surgury to remove the abscess lump 2 hours later. I had a hard recovery and the doctors wanted to make sure I was going to be ok, so I stayed in the hospital for 3 more days. I had my best friends by my side and a great team of doctors to help. I was released Wednesday evening, and now I have a nurse that comes over once a day to check up and change my bandages. I have been told that by next Friday I will have a full recovery. So on my time down I am counting my blessings, resting and eating lots of yummy food. Thank you all for your concerns and best wishes! I need this rest but can not wait to be up and working again! I want to leave on the note that it is of extreme importance to take care of yourself and not be afraid to ask for a second opniion. Without mine I would have been in a whole different situation. Love you all my darlings and God bless…
