Bizarrely, there must be some little chip inside me that really likes staying in hospital. Almost as soon as the possibility of getting out for the weekend arose, my temperature went up and my blood pressure went down… My white blood counts are good, so they’re not too worried, but to be safe they’ve got me on antibiotics and a saline drip. On the plus side, the nasty diarrhea I had seems to have cleared up.
I assume the plan is to carry on with the antibiotics etc until my temperature and b.p. are definitely settled, and then hopefully if my blood counts are at a good level they might let me go. I don’t know when that will be, though.
Today I’ve been pretty restricted by having at least one, and usually two drips plugged into me all day – between saline, antibiotics x2, potassium, magnesium and anti-sickness my in-tray has been quite busy!
