Hi all, captured AGAIN pushing towards 20 admissions in <5 months! It ... Is ... Insane.
I have been in since monday, where as normal left it late (later than the norm). Done the whole resus and threatening ICU c**p.
Lungs have needed a lot of stuff to try and get them onside and they are still not playing. Was put on IV aminophylline on weds, but they still aren't really playing ball (keep dropping my sats, going to the loo and coming back too sob to talk - you know the *fun* stuff your lungs do) so my cons yesterday decided to keep me on the aminophylline until Monday where he will review. If I can come off and stay stable for 24 hours I *might* get out Tuesday. I'm just hoping that there will be a degree of stability on discharge. - though at the moment I'd settle for being able to breathe comfortably whilst sat!
The people looking after me are actually amazing though!! Definitely makes admissions more bearable.
Any ideas to keep me from going insane over the next 4 days? Not even allowed off the ward
Hope everyone else is ok
