Hospital Days #15

Its been a bit. Since I switched over to the cefepime and toby, i’ve felt a little better. The past couple days the doctors were thinking I would be able to go home but my antibiotic levels for tobramycin were high so it was delayed a couple of days. The normal levels are around 5-10,Continue reading “Hospital Days #15”

Hospital Days #8

Lots been going on. So i’m not feeling better and my pfts went down. They decided to change my antibiotics after talking to my main pulmonologist so now i’m on toby and cefepime.

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).

Clinic 1/10/20

I got here at around 9:30ish. I was going to have an equipment check, which happens once a year. It’s exactly what it sounds like.

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”
