I am SO glad last week is over!
Not only did I have 2 days of fevers...but I also spent 2 days over a trash can throwing up anything I ate or drank! It was NOT fun.
On Wednesday I felt better as far as no fevers went but then I started having my joint pain. So by Thursday my doctor had given me Tylenol w/codeine because nothing else was helping the pain. My pain started to go away but then the codeine messed up my stomach and that's what was making me get sick. I started throwing up Thursday at midnight (Friday morning) and was up all night getting/feeling sick. So ALL day Friday I was NPO and getting continuous IV fluids (so I wouldn't dehydrate) and Zofran every 8 hours for the nausea. I was able to eat a little bit by Sunday but it wasn't till yesterday my appettite got back to normal. Luckily not eating for 2 days didn't affect my weight at all which is surprising.
So now that the week from hell is over hopefully I can kick my health into high gear so that I can be discharged by next week.....I have a trip to go on! :)
