Hospital Detour during Chemo Treatment
Well, I’m sorry to say that things have gone to another level (and not up!). Today, I was admitted to the hospital with a 101 degree fever, indicating that there is an infection going on somewhere in this bod. F-Bomb.
I’ve been dehydrated for several days and last night even administered IV fluids to myself at home. Yes. I’m serious. Thank goodness I’m a nurse (Silver Lining).
Today, however, with a fever and considering the fact that it took every ounce of energy to go to the bathroom, things went to another level, i.e., hospitalization.
There have been plenty of Silver linings in this day:
- From my hospital room, I can see the mountains and the ocean.
- The hospital menu looks amazing. Seriously.
- The fact that I can look at a menu and say it looks amazing.
- I’m here with the HOTY.
- The phlebotomist drew my blood on the first stick.
Our greatest glory is not in never falling, but in getting up every time we do.
