Went to Florida to be snowbirds for the winter months I have MS, Lupus,Hughes and a few more. My 2nd hospitalization in less than one month. Was rushed into hospital as the Lupus attacked both my lungs after exposure to hugh quantity of black mold. While there I had the worst coughing spell ever. I felt something and heard something pop in my abdomen on right side. When it happened the pain was so excruciating that I screamed no tests or xrays were taken at that time things went downhill but my PT,INR was 2.7. I decided to sign myself out of the hospital AMA and my husband and I decided to drive the 1800 miles back up north ..i felt so sick and decided if I am to due, I'd rather do so near family. We arrived 2 days later during the night. We went to my daughters. By 7 am I couldn't walk two feet and be completely out of breath family drove me to my drs I was in severe respiratory distress and sent by ambulance to the hospital upon being evaluated, couldn't breathe and severe pain through my upper right abdomen unto my side, they noticed I was bleeding under the skin severely one of the areas was 14 inches long by 6 inches wide. They did a CT scan and found an extremely large hematoma with all the free floating blood they couldn't see if I was still actively bleeding. While in that first hospital, j definitely hurt something so bad to do this damage and no tests or pics were taken while there. I do have Hughes and on coumadin, my last unr before I left that hospital was 2.7 no Coumadin was taken during the ride home. While here they did pt,inr and found I was way too thinned out. The bleeding slowed down yesterday but during the night started again, now leaving all that brusung on my front of the belly. My vidt looks like a roadmap as they keep circling the bruses as they grow.this has been a nightmare, in the ER the Dr said I am so glad you made it here because just 24 hours later, we would.t be having thus conversation. I am now in good hands but with all these autoimmune issues and bleeding I am so scared sorry for the length of this post but really needed to be able to say what's going on. U dint gave much in support at home but for my husband and daughter but they are also stressed out with all of this.
