Hospital Diaries #4

Day 4 of ??

I started this meal plan with my dietician. I think it’s kind of dumb and I don’t like it, but I’m giving it a go. Today we went over the menu together and I pointed out the things I liked and disliked.

So how it works is that she meets with me and we plan what I’m going to eat. So it’s automatically ordered to my room for a certain time. Like earlier today. I got pancakes, they sent it up and I didn’t have to call down from the phone in my room and place an order.

The goal is to eat 3 meals and 3 snacks. With ordering more food they’ll hope I’ll eat more.

I talked to the other doctors when they came for rounds. I mentioned Gastroparesis to them and how the gi doctors put out the idea for me to do a gastric emptying test. It’s where your stomach is paralyzed. The muscles don’t contract so there is delayed emptying into your intestines. This causes nausea, abdomen pain, etc.

They’re going to look more into it.

I drew a lot today. You’ll see them today and tomorrow. I was really happy with how it turned out. My sister and grandma visited me, so Bri brought me my markers and I finished the drawings.

Lots of Netflix and Minecraft. A little bit of sims.

I did a decent amount of school. Two tutorials in health, followed by tests for those subjects. I did one tutorial in algebra and a test for it. A post test for my biology class, and checked emails.

I don’t really know what else to write.

Oh idea.

Pt came in and did percussion around 11. Then at 1:30 I went down to the gym and went on the bike for 15 minutes.

I’ll most likely be getting a dressing changed for my picc, and maybe a pft.

That’s all for now,
