The A&R Journals: Hospital Day #2-3

Here’s a picture of my beautiful taco dog blanket

Day #2

So today was so fun. I was nauseous while doing therapy and then I was for half of the day. My nurse gave me Benadryl for it because the nausea medicine they could give me can cross interact with other meds I’m on. Also Benadryl makes me fall asleep so I kept going in and out of sleep. I was dry heaving for a couple minutes but I never actually threw up. It could be since I’m so backed up but I’m doing a clean out which is where you take a bunch of mirilax and laxatives. So for the whole day I’ve been hooked up through my gtube getting that. I’ve also been connected to iv fluids so I don’t get dehydrated while on the laxatives.

My nurse said that I was going to get my picc at 9. I got on my gown, got disconnected from everything and such but it turned out I wasn’t getting it today. So I’m getting it tomorrow at 8:30 or so. I also got pfts done today and they went down some which I expected. But I’m happy because my effort was good and I didn’t close off the back of my throat which I always do and when I do that it makes the numbers inaccurate.

I keep going up on the rate of my gtube pump which basically controls the amount of water or formula and how much goes into my stomach a hour. Right now I’m at 300ml/hour and I think I’m going to stay at that. I would be on it all night but since I’m NPO I can’t drink or eat anything after midnight but I am hooked up to iv fluids until I go down to the OR. Right now I’m watching the office (I mean let’s be honest, when am I not) and I was airing for repository to come in so I can do my last treatments.

So my iv blew. Why does this always happen. Oh ya I threw up…great night.

Day #3

So I got my picc. I got into the pre op room and waited for my sister to go back. She got the relaxation stuff which we always get before we go back since we have anxiety and anyone would be nervous for any procedure even if this is my sisters 5th picc and my 6th. Then it was my turn, we had turned on finding dory and I was laying with my mom and talking, I talk a lot when I’m nervous. And then I got the “loopy” stuff and headed off into the OR. I was already tired so with the loopy stuff I was about to fall asleep. I got hooked up to a bunch of stuff and put under. This time was weird because I had never woken up in the OR before, I always wake up after in a room. Though I think I feel back to sleep.

Afterwards I got back to my room, changed, used the bathroom and got my iv taken out. I also ordered food once the doctor changed my chart saying I wasn’t NPO anymore. For the clean out through my gtube I am currently at the highest rate which is 400ml/hour. It can make anyone nauseous so that’s why I was so nauseas yesterday and I probably will be later too but I’ll get something for it.

Anyways I’ll probably get a bronchial scope Tuesday or Wednesday because my cf doctor wants to do it and that’s when she has free time. I’ll also be getting a CT scan sometime around there too. I think I’m just going to be resting for the rest of the day since I’m still tired from anesthesia and I know I’m going to get nauseas again.

That’s all for now, bye!
