Hospital & home again..
Monday, April 27, 2009
Hit a little bit of a snag. I had my surgical hooks removed last week. Everything was looking really good, my swelling was gone and feeling was still increasing. On Friday my plates started irritating me, Saturday I was having pain and by Sunday I was swelling, had pain and just couldn't stop itching. My friend realized I also had a fever and forced me to go to the ER (Thank you). When I got there my heart rate was literally about twice my normal resting heart rate. I was shaking, had chills and on the way home, feeling so under the weather I was holding my friends hand while they drove and mentioned how cold his hand was only for him to tell me my hand was just really hot, he was fine.. Ugh.
At least going last night they caught it earlier than if I'd waited it out some more; I have an infection in the areas where the hooks were and had dug in. I am back at home again now and on pain killers. I guess I won't be working again so soon anyways.
I'm going to try to just take it easy and stick with a softer diet like yogurt and acai bowls and coffee.
I really hope these plates don't bother me for much longer.
