Hospital

I apologize for just now posting this. I got a lot sicker Wednesday morning. My coordinator had me come in to get labs and chest xray, then sent me to our outpatient room on our trasnplant floor. My xray actually looked ok; my labs were a little off, but not too bad. My doctor decided to admit me to see if we could figure out what was going on. I was begging inside that I would get admitted because I felt so bad. I am having the hardest time breathing. It's the worse it has probably been since before my transplant. I had to use a wheelchair to get around while I was getting my labwork and xray done. Right now, I get so out of breath just walking to the restroom, which is probably 5feet away.

They are waiting on cultures to come back to see what's going on. This breathing is serious. They have me on 3 liters of oxygen, because my O2 saturations were dropping below 90. I am on 3 IV antibiotics right now and albuterol nebulizer treatments around the clock. I have also been throwing up for the last 3 days or so. So I am taking IV phenergan and Zofran around the clock as well. I haven't been able to hold anything down and haven't eaten anything really since Tuesday morning. My fevers have seem to subside. My creatnine and some other kidney functions are out of whack. That's understandable....and they have me on continous fluids right now.

I will try and post updates when available. I'm not feeling like doing anything. And I literally can barely breathe....looks like I have a ways to go before being discharged (that's not even in the plans right now). Classes start next Thursday, so I'm praying I will be well by then.

I hope everyone had a great New Year's Eve and Day today! May God Bless the upcoming year for all of us.
