SRS Hospital Again

Discussion in 'On Topic' started by METALLlC BLUE, Mar 9, 2005.

  1. In case anyone wondered where I was; I was hospitalized with sepsis. Saturday my fevers [which I'd been running for a week or two] became unmanageable. Family and myself thought the fevers were because of the Lyme, but the temp climbed to the 104 range, and peaked out on Saturday at 105.9. 911 was called at that point. My PIC line which I'd received IV antibiotics thru was the cause of the blood infection and it was removed. I'm on an antibiotic called Levaquin for the next 2 weeks. I will recover.

  9. I did get it. I was in the middle of watching a movie, and didn't want to interrupt the movie since my friend was in a hurry to finish it. He had to have it back at a certain time. Sorry I didn't pick up.
     
  10. Get good advice? :rofl: :o

  12. That would be pretty cool. You know what else I'd like is a set of hand weights for lifting since I'm so thin and my muscles are severely underdeveloped.

    You always give good advice:bowdown:
     
  14. It's easy to give it. It's very hard to live it.
     
  15. Wow, am I lucky you're still alive. :coolugh:
    No, but seriously, I'm glad you're feeling better. I read your whole case, and you are really inspiring. I'm over here being selfish and totally depressed about love and another small thing that I can easily get over sooner or later, and you're the one giving advice to me. You're a good man. Hang in there. :angel:
     
  16. Everyone carries their own cross. You'll be ok, and one day so will I.

    Glad you're back...Thank God for antibiotics. I think antibiotics have only been around for about 60 years.
     
  18. A curse and a blessing. This time a big blessing. I'm fortunate to live in a time when technology can save my life.
