Hospitalized Last Week

>> Monday, May 24, 2010

Last week, I was hospitalized for a bad infection that just knocked me on my backside.  After several days of IV antibiotics (which caused nausea, equilibrium problems via my ears, and hallucinations), my white blood cell count was low enough that they could send me home with 14 days of two different antibiotics - that cause nausea and pressure in the ears.  Oh how fun! 

After spending another few minutes worshipping the porcelain gods with my face in their throne this morning, I am TIRED of this!  This is my first post in over a week and it's making me nauseous to do it.  Blah!

I have four kids to take care of and a husband on 3rd shift so it's all me this week (he took all his vacation left plus unpaid days last week because of my illness, which we couldn't afford).  Being sick this long is bad news.  I already missed a choir concert and two band concerts because I was tied to the IV in a hospital bed hallucinating evil horror grins, faces flying at me, and the Virgin Mary statue turning around in the garden outside my hospital window because of the antibiotics.  They were knocking out the infection but causing a host of other problems which are still ongoing. 

I don't want to miss anymore of my children's end of the year school activities.  It's making me sad.  It's making me feel frustrated.  It's making me downright pissy.  Not a good combo.
