WELL CRAP!

Tuesday, May 8, 2007
I had such good intentions of blogging on Sunday to tell you about the actual graduation ceremony. But, I was really pooped. Then I had such good intentions to blog on Monday, but I decided I better go in and see a family practice doc because I was having real difficulty urinating to the point that it was majorly uncomfortable. So, I went there and they decided my electrolytes were all wacky and they were so wacky I was immediately checked into the hopital. So, here I am! I'm at UNMC in the Clarkson tower.We've learned one thing. Evidently if you not take in enough protein, your bladder doesn't work very well. So, starting some of these fluids, I've been able to "go" a couple of times which means that discomfort has greatly improved. From the time I started this entry the nurse came in and said that my sodium (?maybe, I think that was it) continues to go down, which I guess isn't good. So, now my liquids are restricted and they bumped up the iv. I hope and pray to God that I don't have to stay here for long. There is some talk about keeping me here until my tests on Thursday. That does not sound like a fun option. If you are a phriend, you know what I'm talking about. But, on the plus side the pharmacist has lots of experience with Flolan!! I am pleasantly surprised!
Well, I'm going to try to sneak in a nap. My roommate is senile and the nights are difficult for her. I'll post more later if I get a chance.
Much love to you all
Annette

Oh Annette! I sure hope you won't have to be in the hospital until Thursday. I hope you are feeling even just a little bit better. I keep praying that things will go back to normal for you, whatever normal is! Much love to you, my PHriend!! *hugs* ~Colleen :)

Annette, I certainly am sorry to hear that you are in the hospital - but it sounds like the best place for you right now! So glad you have gotten some relief with the bladder issues - that can be horrible. Saying a prayer that you are soon on the mend and back in your own home! Jacque

Oh Annette, I am sorry you are in the hospital, knowing well how much we all hate that clean smelling, white, pink and sky blue place. Sounds like it was necessary. We continue to pray for you to get better and come to your base line. Here's also hoping that the docs find whatever the underlying cause ASAP. Get well Soon!
