View Full Version : In the hospital

01-26-2010, 07:36 PM
I have been admitted to the hospital. I grew gram negative rods in my port-the worst kind. I will be here until my cultures are clear for 48 hours. I have a port/blood infection. I will be going home on IV antibiotics. I think I can go to school on those. Depending on the severity, I could be on antibiotic seven days to a month. At this point it looks like closer to the shorter end. I hope to be able to attend school while on the antibiotics.

The bug has been identified as Serratia. typically found in males- my 1% coming into play. I had a horrific night. I had the worst reaction to a medication. For like three hours I was at the peak of terror. And it was like someone gave me truth serum and asked, 'what are you afraid of?' Also I hallucinated...ug. It wasn't the antibiotic. I am tolerating that well. Waiting for 48 hours of no infection in cultures and set up of home IV antibiotics to be cleared to go home...
