Unpleasant update


For today I planned an update on Eli and Nirel. And a review of Biljana Petrova’s “Black and White”. And possibly more squeeing over the new album. I wanted to show you the completed bear. And the new cocolate I discovered at one of the cheap import chocolate shops. I will not post any of that today.

Instead, I’ll whine. Because I am not feeling well, and that’s an understatement really, and it’s ruining my plans.

So yesterday I came in to the hospital for a chemo shot, some IV hydration, my other meds and some labs. I did have a runny nose and a little cough coming and going, but nothing that would have warranted being checked in. Labs were all over the place, so getting a transfusion was added to the list. Before I was about to leave I started to run a fever and throw up. Initially the fever was attributed to the transfusion, as I almost always have a low grade fever after one, but by the time ten p.m. rolled around my fever was 39.9°C and I was feeling short of breath and coughing. Good thing I was admitted, because I was feeling lousy. I was really struggling for air, and for the first time in a very long time I was put on oxygen. It didn’t help as much as I hoped, and an early-early morning chest X-ray confirmed that I have pneumonia and the fluid in my lungs makes me feel so craptastic. It seems to be viral, so the only reason why I get antibiotics is to avoid a secondary infection. Chances are that no matter how hard I tried to avoid getting Nirel’s bug, he passed it onto me, via some of his siblings, probably.

I still have a fever. I still throw up everything I try to eat. I feel exhausted, but I can’t sleep, because my chest hurts, my whole body hurts, really, and it takes effort to breathe sometimes. I feel better a bit now, but it comes and goes in waves. Not fun at all. I just have the new Harel album play on repeat, on the laptop, and a very funny roommate to keep me entertained when I have the desire for entertainment. Usually I just rely on Mr Skaat’s voice and things seem a little better.

I’m absolutely bummed, because Yonah’s 18th birthday is on Wednesday. 🙁 We have plans, and one of those plans involves a judge and court. Not something that will be easily rescheduled. 🙁 And ALL the boys will be home then. :([cid:image001.jpg@01CCDF53.51FEE280]

    UGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! I am SO sorry! I didn’t know that you were in the hospital this long. Any idea when you get out?

    • Hevel says:

      I was only supposed to be in for a few hours, but because I started to feel unwell I was admitted. Not sure how long I’ll be here, but several days. I really need to be well enough on Wednesday to get out for a few hours. 🙁
