Hospital Diaries #1

So I have cystic fibrosis, which is a genetic lung disease that also affects the pancreas and other parts of the body. I was admitted into the hospital today and im going to tell you all about it. Once I signed in to the hospital I went up to my room. I first got my nose and mouth swapped for bacteria and germs. I then went down for Pulmonary function tests or pfts. Its where you test your lung capacity and other stuff. After that I went down to do x-rays and went back to my room.

When I got back to my room I had to get an I.V. The lady who did my I.V poked me and then it burst, so i had to get another I.V. I ended up getting it in my forearm. Im going to get a picc line hopefully tomorrow so I have to get put on I.V fluids at 12. A picc line is a tiny tube that is put on your upper arm is used for I.V antibiotics.

Hospital Tips of the day

Use socks as picc line cover but cut off the foot part

If your bored bring bored games or projects to do.

If you have a picc line buy a shower cover from amazon or use press and seal and tape to go around the picc when taking a shower.
