What a week! And I topped off last week in the Hospital AGAIN!
Not sure what happened, was scheduled for my yearly scope on Friday, so on Wednesday I took two Ducolaxes before bed, was that a mistake?! I am thinking so. I woke up to start my prep day feeling like I wanted to throw up and did so violently! And started to get the shakes and freaked out my daughter and my brother came over and marched me to the ER which I HATE to do because they NEVER understand my medical condition! I then continued to throw up and then stared to have diaherra which I tried to change my bag and could not get another one on quick enough and what a mess that was!
So of course I was admitted, they thought they saw a bowel obstruction, but HELLO did you not see that volcano go off! But my peristomal hernia looks like an obstruction but would they listen, NO! I did have a kidney infection two so maybe that was the culprit?! Of course I had to get a sign off by all my doctors, urology to ok the kidney infection clearup, Colorectal surgeon to clear up the so called bowel obstruction, then the GP for who knows why and then the wonderful hospitalist gives the final blessing! All I know I was in the SLAMMER until Saturday, yesterday.
But here I sit after another stay and I just feel like I am in a fog for several days. Sometimes it is nice to push a button and ask for pain meds, or to come adjust something, or order food or whatever you need, and you come home and there is no button to push for help anymore! And then since of depression overcomes me.......and I feel like a walking zombie!
I am in the slammer enough, actually to much to have this feeling to much! I have never had a beloved with me to hold me, well except my mom who I have lost, sometimes just being held helped. Walking clears my mind but I do not have strength right away.
So I know many of you are frequent flyers to the hospital, so what cures you post hospital blues?!
