3 Weeks of IVs down

Just a short update:  I finished 21 days of IV Aztreonam on Monday.  The Levaquin was not extended which I am grateful for.  It causes me lots of arthritic pain and makes moving around painful in my joints, all over.  As for how I’m feeling now…I’m decent enough.  I still have a dry sounding productive cough.  I will keep an eye/ear on it.

Just a little update

Today is day 25 of IV Zerbaxa, counting from day one in the hospital.  I was switched to oral Levaquin from IV when I was discharged from the hospital 14 days ago.  I tolerate IV Levaquin way better than oral Levaquin.  Levaquin makes me super nauseous therefore I am nauseous most of the time.  My stomach is super sensitive right now so I’m trying to eat lightly.  I’m trying to eat things I ‘think’ will be smooth on my stomach but it doesn’t seem to be working all that well. haha  Continue reading

Hospital follow up today

Today was a decent day.  I had my follow up from my hospital stay today.  We did the usual clinic stuff.  My weight is up a few pounds since my last visit.  I’m sure it is all the good food and lots of snacks that we have been blessed with over the last week.  I’m not complaining because I need the calories and fat.  The thing is, all of my gummy bears and Snickers bites have already disappeared.  That may or may not have something to do with those few extra pounds. 🙂 My lung functions are holding steady at FEV1 of 1.39 / 47%.  They aren’t great but they are steady so I’ll take it.  They were all very concerned with how my kidneys decided to take a nose dive, or well a spike I guess out of nowhere.  I gave them a scare and they were all racking their brains for causes and solutions.   Continue reading
