Thread: Another hospital stay and more infections :(

    Another hospital stay and more infections :(

    So... my bad luck continues.... I caught some type of bug that has decided to settle in my chest. This caused my blood sugars to go completely out of whack (I am also a type 1 diabetic for the past 22 years). I ended up in the ICU for a couple days and then another day of regular floor care. I also find out that I have another stupid UTI. I have not had this many UTI's in such a short amount of time since my injury . I am beyond irritated!!!!

    We've had weather changes here lately and my voice has been a little grumbly ... this is the time of year when bugs flourish in the varying temps.

    Get well soon! You need a break!

    Do you take vitamins or probiotics or anything? I swear by them.

    Jody- I too am glad that they got on the ball and get me in and out quick!! I did tell them that school was starting though. As it is, I ended up missing the first day, yesterday .

    Lynnifer- I have taken a multi- vitamin for years and after my C-diff encounter last year, I now also take a probiotic. I guess it was just in the cards for me to get super sick .

    Patrick- I wish I could scream right along with you but I currently still hardly have a voice . I am hoping it will come back to me by friday. Then, I will join you in your chorus of ARRRRRRGHHH!!!! Having a good cry doesn't seem all that bad either !

    Bonnette- It was definitely not in my plans! Thank you for your concern as always!
