Criminal Minds and Hospital Rhymes

I’m just chilling in bed, not my bed, but the common hospital mattress i’ve grown to loathe. Admitted friday, three days in, and I am already bored. My sister and I are, like usual, watching netflix, recently starting Criminal Minds on Netflix. Since Friday, I started cefepime and tobramycin, unable to get a picc untilContinue reading “Criminal Minds and Hospital Rhymes”

Hospital Days #4

If you can’t tell, i’m not planning on uploading these posts daily. It can get repetitive very quickly so as not to bore you, I won’t be doing that. It’s my fourth day in the hospital(I think). My picc procedure went well and it’s nice not having an iv in my arm anymore. I amContinue reading “Hospital Days #4”

Hospital Days #1

I went to my hospital around two today, just to get pfts. My doctor wasn’t on call so my mom spoke to the attending instead and made the decision to do the pulmonary test. Just in preparation, I packed a small bag and essentials just in case I was admitted. My pfts were around theContinue reading “Hospital Days #1”

Getting Discharged!

Today I’m getting discharged. I had my last antibiotic at 10 and now I’m waiting to get my picc put. I got my flu vaccine earlier and I’m almost done packing. I started The Blood of Olympus, the last book of the Hero’s of Olympus. I’m already halfway through it and it’s amazing! Hoping toContinue reading “Getting Discharged!”

Hospital Diaries #9

I woke up nervously. I had a bronchoscopy today. I ended up being put on call, which meant that I would go down earlier than scheduled. Heading down around 11 instead of 12, I got vitals and answered all the questions. Luckily I didn’t have to change into a gown down in the Pre-op room,Continue reading “Hospital Diaries #9”

Hospital Diaries #6

Tried to do school today. Worked a little but eventually I gave up as people kept coming in and out of my room and I was getting super anxious and stressed. Child life left this on my door: Which is truly amazing. Tomorrow I have a CT scan at 1, and Thursday I have myContinue reading “Hospital Diaries #6”

Hospital Diaries- Day #5

In technicality it is day 4 of antibiotics but I’ve been here for 5 days. To be honest, today was relaxing. As always sleep is a struggle but that’s besides the point. After my first treatment at 8, I watched a couple movies with my mom while reading. I ended up finishing The Mark ofContinue reading “Hospital Diaries- Day #5”

Hospital Diaries #2

I got my picc! It was around 11:30 when I went back and it went well. In the morning I entered a study which the hospital is doing to see if there’s certain antibiotics that make pics go bad in the cf community. I get 60 bucks overall which is a nice addition. They justContinue reading “Hospital Diaries #2”
