I have been struggling for over a week with nausea, vomiting and diarrhea. In my mind I was assuming it was all related to chemo. I went to Highlands yesterday for IV fluids. Today I'm in the ER waiting to be seen. The ER waiting room was full and when I told the receptionist I was on chemo, she gave me my own private waiting room. That proves there are advantages of having chemo. Tony and I were grateful not to be among all the flu and other illnesses going on in the main waiting area. We were put into a regular ER room within a very short amount of time. Now the waiting begins to see how long and what they find out.
Within 1 hour of walking into the ER I was hooked up to IV fluids. I am being admitted into the hospital and will probably go home tomorrow. I was told my Magnesium was low and that I needed fluids to rehydrate. I am thankful to have a husband watching over me and made me get some medical attention. I was willing to wait it out another day, but he knew better. I am blessed!
"Today is the day the Lord has made, I will rejoice and be glad in it."
I'm still here! Barely!
