|Back in ICU

On Saturday, I spiked a fever of 104 & the nurses packed me in ice & sent me to ICU. I was really disoriented. I don't recall a lot - My fever spiked again on Sunday to 103, my blood pressure was really low & heart rate was high. I was packed with ice again & was given 2 units of blood. I was unable to remember my name or birth date. I was never so delirious.
Leigh & my folks spent most of the day with - being surrounded by love makes a big difference.
I'm grateful to be here in the ICU - the level of care is awesome
Speaking of blood I found these on Oriental Trading
They are marketing the Bags of Blood as gift bags for Twilight Saga fans
woa that is really scary...do they think you have an infection from your surgery, or do they know why that happened so suddenly?
I'm glad you are in good hands at the ICU...hope you are feeling better soon!
It sure sounds like an infection...
It was a blood (yeast) infection I am being treated with antibiotics. The surgery itself went well. The high temp was from the infection.
Oh god, honey. That sounds awful. You're in my thoughts.
How scary! I'm praying for you *hugs*
Hope they'll help you to get better soon!
geez, sweet woman! your immune system is probably so frail at this point, i'm really glad they have you in ICU. they can keep a tighter rein on things there. i know the lesser degree of privacy can be a pain, but at this point, better safe than not.
yeasties can be devils too. "Amphoterrible" B, anyone? lol
just take it easy, kiddo. my thoughts and prayers are with you. i'll be glad when you finally get cleared of the "nosocomials" and get to go home. <3
That sounds scary, not remembering your name or birthdate. Get well soon!
Oh my! Are you better now! That's worrying! How's the temperature?
geez, that's not fun. I am sorry it took such a turn. Sure hope you are feeling a bit better by now. I am glad you are getting good care and that the nurses were on it. Lots of well wishes from the alls of us.
Wow, that is really scary! I'm glad you are being so well taken care of and your family is with you. I hope you feel and get better soon!
I hope you get better soon. I'm glad they are taking such good care of you.
Omg, that sounds so scary! I'm glad they're taking good care of you though and that your family was with you. Hope you feel a lot better soon *hugs*
