Get better from lung crap. Check.
Then, today, AFTER lunch at work, I get kidney stone pain. Think I can stand it, just tell my boss going to be offline for a bit while I go to the can.
Come back when I feel a little better, but still painful. Take one call, then back to the washroom. Come back, tell my boss I want to leave for home. Before she gets confirmation, back to the washroom. get back, and get told from my team that I got permission to leave. Good.
Walking lessened the pain, so I walked a few bus stops while waiting for the bus. Get on the bus and make it about 3/4 of the way home, and have to get off. Can't stand the pain and felt like puking.
Then, walk home, feel better, go right to the washroom. pain flares up. To the point I ask MAnny to call me an ambulance. BUT... being low priority, the ambulance will take a while, so I pace the apartment. In that time, the pain lessens, lessens, and right this moment, I have no pain. So we cancelled the ambulance call.

Why can't my body just give me a break?

 So, it’s time for an update, is it?

I am sending this to my Google+, livejournal, Dreamwidth, and email to select people in a blitz due to not really being able to use the net at the hospital.  I can’t call anyone long distance from the hospital either, but those concerned can contact MAnlantrio/Karen and get the room number. Not sure though, there isn’t a phone on my side of the room. (It’s on the A side, I’m on the B side).I am still in the hospital. The deal is as follows: Had a cold on Friday and it was going alright. Saturday we went tubing, and I was alright, but probably pushed too hard. Sunday the cold migrated to my lungs. This has triggered an asthma attack as consequence. But not an ordinary asthma attack. My body is still fighting off whatever this infection is, making my white blood cell count very high, and by consequence, my lungs are still in a bad way, fighting it all off.  My blood oxygen level is still a little low according to the doctors, and because of that, the high white cells and the asthma, this is why they are keeping me.

Cut for length )

So even though i'm not allowed to use cell functions in the hospital, i was informed my management that i would be allowed to use the phone in airplane mode (yay! Games!). So yes, i am, as i am writing this, about to pass the 48 hor mark in the emergency room. I will be posting this when able. (a nice nurse allowed me a quick connection! Yay!)
So what put me in here? Technically, a cold. Realistically, my stupidd body. See, Friday i started a cold. Okay, i can deal with this. An advil cold&sinus kept it at bay until the afternoon, took another when i got home. All good.
Saturday was the amazing Fursuit Snow Tubing. The advil worked again, but i think that the conditions made things worse. sunday i really didn't feel well, so didn't go to brunch. Monday woke up feeling about the same, but was much harder to breathe.
I felt i was overtaking the blue pump, so in the evening i went to the hospital. Been here since. I'm on 3 different puffers every 4 hours, a push of anti-inflamatory every 4 hours, antibiotics in the morning, they're supplying me with my blood pressure medication... Oh, and i've given 7 viles of blood so far (it is Wednesday at 6pm), on the 3rd entry of an IV (the first missed, and the second slipped sometime lastnight)
I've had two prick tests for blood sugar, both say it's okay. But i'm still suffering. Lungs are congested still. Weak, as in walking to the washroom 20 feet away makes me pant for breath. My blood oxygen level is somewhere around 92 ... Should be 100. So yeah, also have the nasal oxygen tube on... And now been through 1 700 page novel, and about 1/4 into the second.
I sould be moving to a semi private room sometime tonight. Once there's a vacancy.

For the record, i think this is a wakeup call for me. I most likely won't be able to do all the things i am used to doing, and it'll likely be a while before i can do the walk to work again. Hell, i'm probably going to be on short term disability due to this. There is no way i am going back this week, and probably not next. First time in ever i have been this bad off.
On the plus side, i've met some very nice folks here in the ER, and witnessed an old woman's progression into dimentia... very not a nice thing.
I'll update this later with more info.
felinaeus: (happy)
Alright. So, here's what's been going on. This is going to be a bit rambly, so I'll shove it behind a cut. Up to you if you want to know what's been up or not.

So that brings you up to date. TL:DR...I have high BP, not sure what's causing it, awaiting test results and so am taking things VERY easy. I am Okay, and I know people are worried. So am I, but i'm alive, am mobile, and typing.

I hate this feeling.
I've never felt quite like this before.
I think I'm getting another kidney stone. But I'm not sure.
Last time, I had the irrational feeling, constantly for about a week before, that I had to urinate. And like maybe I had a UTI or something. then the searing pain of the actual kidney stone attack. When the ambulance attendant asked me that time on a scale of 1 to 10 how bad the pain was, I had to earnestly report a 13.

But for the last day, my lower right back and side have been bugging me. Nothing I can pin to a specific location, and not a horrible pain. On that same scale it is sitting somewhere at a 1 or 2. Annoying, but not unbareable. I really don't want to go into the hospital unless I have to. Granted, the option is not out of the question, but I just hate going to the hospital to have them tell me "oh, it's just blah. Go home and rest and drink lots of water and you'll feel better. Oh, and take a mix of advil/tylenol for the discomfort". I've had that reccomendation for everything from a migrane to random chest pain.

I guess I'll just stick it out at work unless it gets worse. but man, I hate this feeling.

Good Thing: Tool at work that I developped and put in place is working very well. No major issues or complaints.

Bad Thing: Throat is sore since yesterday evening. No clue what it is. Might be an infection, so will have to keep an eye on it. Better today, though.

Good Thing: I am going to be DJing at a rather sizeable Birthday thingy in a couple of months. I have the music, but must get more.

Bad Thing: need to figure out sound equipment for this as I do not have large speakers.

Good Thing: What The Fur is moving along

Bad Thing: Need more hours in the day to move it along faster.

Good Thing: umm... Weather! It is absolutely gorgeous out there today!

Bad Thing: ... I have to work on this gorgeous day.
