My Son's In The Hospital With The Stomach Bug...
Tuesday, February 05, 2013
Last night my 24 year old son had to go to the emergency room due to the bad stomach bug that is going around. He got to the emergency room (with his girlfriend) at 7 pm. He had chest pains along with the nausea. He waited until 4 AM to get a bed in the ER! They found fluid around his heart and that his kidneys weren't working properly...all from the virus!
Last night I thought he went, got fluids and went home. I was surprised when his girlfriend texted me at 7 this morning! So we have both been here all day. His blood pressure is real low - 91/47. The good news is he got a lecture from the Dr. He is 5'8 and weighs 115 pounds - his bmi is 17!! He has always been on the small side but he is way too skinny. We have been getting on him about his weight - he always gets mad at us. Hopefully he will start eating more now. He is going to get a physical next!!
So, I have been here all day. I had a really nice salad, broccoli, white beans, pink grapefruit for lunch and hummus for snack. I had cottage cheese and a peanut butter nutrisystem bar (I always keep one in my pocketbook in case) for dinner. And I am drinking lots of water.
My bff's sister works in the ER tonight - she is going to come check on him for me. I am going to go home later tonight when his girlfriend gets back. I told him to take her out to a real nice restaurant when this is done!!
