Hospital Diaries #6

Today we were actually doing stuff.

I woke up at 7:30 and did therapy at 8. I heard we had pfts and ekgs. I also had to take a shower. I had the ekg at 10:30 for a prolonged qtc which can because by the celexa. It’s a longer resting beat of the heart and we’ve had it a little bit in the past so every time we get admitted we have to get one to make sure it’s not to long.

Of course it wouldn’t be a hospital stay without watching the office and playing the sims. I ate around 1 which is a bit late, and we had physical therapy at 1:30. We did this thing where we throw a ball that has a bunch of different exercises on it. When you catch it you do the exercise that it lands on. It made it a little more interesting.

We used these 4 wheeled, almost like a skateboard that we sat on and used our legs to move us down our hallway. Then one of us sat on it and the other pulled one another while holding on a jump rope.

My pfts number for my small airways was 84, and my lsat one was 114, which means it’s 29 down if I did the math right. My large airways were 79. So there not great, but they could be worse.

I’m hooked up to Toby right now, watching the office. I’m about to do therapy and I have a headache.

That’s all for now,

Bye.

Hospital Diaries #4

Today nothing really happened. I played the sims, we binged watched say yes to the dress since it was playing constantly on tlc. We walked around a bit and plan to later, went to a gift shop and of some candy. We cut the walk short since I was having an episode of breathing problems.

I took a shower today. My hair was sort of oily so it was a good thing to do. I drew a bit today. I’ll upload the picture soon. I lost 2 pounds. It’s probably from the clean out which I guess is a good thing since the weight wasn’t benefiting anything.

We’re still planning to do a bronc on Tuesday or Wednesday. I think I’m still getting a gtube at the same time which I’m nervous for. When I got a picc it was at 8 and it was weird because everything happened so fast which I didn’t like that much. Usually it takes at least a half hour before the anasteseologist. I was the first one that day so that’s why it went by so fats. I prefer to wait actually so I can process it. When I got the picc it was happening so fat so I didn’t have time to think about what was going on.

I filled out a hope bead sheet and got them. I’ve done them once before and try to do it every time which I usually forget. Now my necklace looks more full instead of just like 20 beads it’s around 40ish.

That’s all for now,

Bye.

Hospital Diaries #2

So I did not get a picc today. I woke up did therapy, and my sister had already changed into a gown when we were told that we wouldn’t be getting them today. So rounds. My X-rays showed for my stomach that I am indeed, backed up. If you don’t know what that means, it has to do with bowel stuff. So I’m taking mirialx every hour. They said when we came in, in the morning they heard crackling in my lungs, but after I did therapy it was clear.

I’m so full from all the mirialx that I didn’t eat a lot today. So from the Toby it messes with your kidneys so you have to drink ALOT of water. 3 liters to be exact. So we decided, especially because I’m already drinking so much mirialx, that I was going to be on fluids. So I’ve been on fluids all day which is weird. I ended up having to get a new iv because the one I had wasn’t working. I was going to go down to the gym at 3 but then a physiatrist came in so she said we’ll do it tomorrow, but I won’t be doing it tomorrow since I’m getting a picc at 8am and my arm will be sore. I have one more therapy for tonight and then I’ll be set.

We’re trying this sleeping protocol thing which is where we close the curtains and stuff and can’t go on our devices. I’ve tried it before, the not going on my devices and it doesn’t do anything, but I still have to try it.

I’m sort of nervous for getting a picc, but I know I’ll be more nervous tomorrow. I don’t know why I get nervous even though I’ve done this many times before but I still do.

That’s all for now,

Bye.
