Hospital Day#14

Today was the last day of antibiotics. I did my last doses of both cefapime and tobymyacine at 4 and 4:30am. Right now i don’t know when i’m going to be leaving the hospital, but my doctors are focusing on me gaining weight. I go two viruses from the hospital, c-diff, and Nora virus. I was up at night throwing up, but that subsided.

I was hooked up to fluids 24/7 a couple days ago, because of the virus I wasn’t drinking a lot. Now i’m just on tube feeds 24/7. I’m on a formula where it is 111 g of pediasure and 455 of water. Earlier today I was really nausea and threw up more than 2 liters, so basically I didn’t digest any of the feeds. I’m not eating orally that much, just a few bites of something here or there.

Whatever I eat I get nausea, and sometimes i’m still nausea when I don’t eat. This has been happening for maybe 2 years and were just now having doctors look at it. I’m going to get a gastric emptying test done which tests for gastroperisis, but I have to wait til I get over these viruses.

I have to wait out on the Nora virus and just let it run its course, but I’m on an antibiotic for it that doesn’t go through my picc.

I finally was able to leave my room today. Since I have those viruses I was on isolation and couldn’t leave my room, but now since i’m feeling better I can.

That’s all for now,
