Health Stuff

Friday I had yet another appointment with my doctor. Pfts then GI appointment.

Pfts

The same as last time. I talked to my doctor and I’m going off the previous oral antibiotic, getting put on inhaled tobymyacine antibiotics. I just finished a 5 day course of prednisone as well.

When my mom had been talking to her she asked if any of us thought we needed to be admitted.

If this doesn’t work I’ll probably go into the hospital. For the time being, at least for the next week or two I’m trying not to get admitted because of finals and such.

Though it will be nice to be in the hospital when I don’t have to worry about school.

GI

These appointments always leave me at a loss and frustrated. Confused definitely. Basically as a summary, I’m going to be getting a gastric emptying test done, trying to maintain/ gain weight, and such. We were talking about trying another medication I’ve been on but increasing the dosage. We’re holding that off for a bit.

Anyways 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.

Hospital Diaries #7

One week down, one more to go.

Right now I’m laying the oh so comfy hospital bed, hooked up to antibiotics and waiting for rt to come in to attach a co2 monitor to me. They were supposed to come in at 10, but guess not.

I did some school today.

Binged watch the office, again. It’s just a continuous thing now. Played a bunch of Minecraft. I’m trying to build a city with walls around it, so I have to do the impossible on Minecraft. Make a circle. So googling grid paper and finding a site exactly for Minecraft circles was a go.

I did okay today with my ‘meal plan.’ Just a lot of nausea.

Tomorrow I have pfts at 1:30.

Now I’m just going to put in some memes as fillers because I don’t know what to write if I’ve just been doing the same thing all day.

That’s all for now,

Bye.

Hospital Diaries #5-6

(not mine)

I’ve had a boring past few days. Filled with minecraft and binge watching the office, I was having an art block yesterday. I drew an eye, because that usually helps my creative juices flowing, but I couldn’t even draw an eye right. I was finally able to draw something today. I’m probably going to post it tomorrow.

I want to thank you guys for all the support. I love reading the comments and im glad to be affecting people. Im already at 220 followers, I cant believe it.

So from the bottom of my heart, to the top of it, thank you.

Lol. I love the office.

Thats all for now,

bye.

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,

Bye.
