Discharged!

So I’m out of the hospital. 👍

I got discharged Friday afternoon. So the deal was, I stay on top of my treatments for 4 times a day with the vest and nebulizers then I can end the iv antibiotics on Tuesday. It was either that or stay til Tuesday.

Needless to say my dog was very happy to see me.

These are some left over pictures from the hospital. I’m working on a project right now so hopefully I’ll get that up soon.

That’s all for now,

Bye.

Hospital Admission

Yesterday i got admitted for yet another lung infection. After trying 3 different antibiotics we decided it was time to bite the bullet and just go in for a tune up. I am hopefully going to stay here for one week then do two weeks at home with the iv antibiotics.

I was able to get a picc today around 9:30. Just the typical mild sedation and such, though the aftermath was more painful than my other piccs. Ever since I woke up I’ve been in pain. It is manageable, but annoying.

Thats all for now,

bye.

Friday Doctors Appointmnet

I saw my CF doctor on Friday. I had pfts done.

My FEV1 was 92, which is really good. I do close off my throat, which makes my numbers look better when they’re not.

It does annoy me though. Feeling this crappy and having this many problems breathing I was expecting them to at most be in the 80s. It just makes me feel like I have to validate for my symptoms, prove that they are indeed real. This already happens with having an invisible illness when people don’t understand that I may look fine, but I am indeed sick.

I got put on a different antibiotic. I’ve of course, have had side effects of dizziness and insomnia.

I lost 2 pounds since last month, and 4-5 since I got discharged at the end of March. I’m trying to eat more, but also eat healthier foods.

Updates will probably follow soon.

That’s all for now,

Bye.

Lung Infections are BS

Didn’t I just go through this like a month ago?

The answer is yes, and this is why lung infections are BS.

The repetitiveness is ridiculous. Like seriously it’s maybe been just more than a month since my last admission? I don’t know, all of them sort of blend together into one flaming ball of garbage that I just want to put down the disposal.

Oh ya and anxiety? Well that can just go jump off a microwave.

I just started a new pediatricians since I’m still idk young? Though I feel like I’m older than 15. Hospital stays, handfuls of medications, and cracking joints, oh my!

Ya you could say I’m sleep deprived.

Started taking an oral antibiotic, though they never help, I think they have to do that rather than just send me straight to the hospital.

I’m coughing a lot more. When I’m sick it’s usually dry cough with the occasional wet coughs, but now it’s 50/50. I mean it’s not as bad as others, but it’s still a pain.

I have around 3 weeks of school left, then, freedom! I was hoping to stay out of the hospital til summer, but at this rate where I can’t walk to the couch from my kitchen without being breathless for 10 minutes is a bit ridiculous.

Algebra sucks btw. Who thought adding letters would be a good idea. Just 4 years ago x meant to multiply, where as now it’s ‘oh find what x means or something.’

Anyways, in summary my health sucks, lung infections are BS, and anxiety can go jump off a microwave.

Well thanks for listening to my ted talk,

Bye.

Hospital Diaries #8

*plays the magical music to disney*

I was woken up to birds chirping and wonderful sunlight casting through my window.

NOPE

I was woken up to my half hour late respiratory therapist. Fun times, fun times.

My designer bags were packed for a day of hospital fun.

Just look at that enthusiasm.

I got pfts done at 1:30. They were up which is good. My sister and grandma visited. I got pop for tomorrow. Yay caffeine.

Anyways,

That’s all for now,

Bye.
