In the Hospital-Day 3

hey everybody, just wanted to give you an update to let you know i am in the hospital. i came in on monday around probably 5-6. time went by so fast i'm not really sure. i started not feeling good saturday night(while in milwaukee for the weekend). i had a sore throat-not the worst. sunday morning-very bad sore throat. the ride home on sunday was miserable. monday morning my chest was tight, and the sora throat was gone. well anyways we went that afternoon to my local dr. he did an x-ray and things looked good. BUT i was down like 7lbs in 2 days. Not Good for a CF patient. so thats when we had no choice and the dr. said-you're in!! i was admitted because with losing all that weight they didn't want something crazy to happen and then have pnemonia really start, so they are doing antibiotics for percautions.

so i had packed a bag(i had a bad feeling) my mom didn't. so we get our room and then time for iv. i have really bad veins so it took a few tries. the one time they had the iv and then my vein rolled away. DANG! so now i have a HUGE bruise on my arm. so anyways i am on zosyn. i'm in until i start gaining weight. my specialty CF dr's in MN are in contact with the local dr. daily. NO PICC this time so we're praying that the one in my right wrist doesn't blow. i try not to use it much(typing is an exception). i'm supposed to be doing at least 3,000 calories a day and yesterday i barely did 1,000. so i'm not out of here until i'm able to do that. losing 7lbs in 2 days is not good. they even tested me to make sure i didnt have diabetes(thankfully no). j

just wanted to give you all an update. bye!!

cant wait for make~a~wish =)
