Urgh! Enjoying the 'highlights' of being an in patient! Developed a kidney infection, so now I get to encounter life on the other side! Admitted yesterday for IV antibiotics and another renal scan
Pro's - I've seen and heard an awful lot of Flump since yesterday
Con's - 1) I don't really remember yesterday! 2) Obstetrician's have an unhealthy obsession with Grey cannula's! What's wrong with a pink?? 3) I am not enjoying the sound track resulting from being directly above labour ward... 4) I am a much better doctor than I am a patient!!!
Really hoping they discharge me tomorrow on orals, but have decided to be a good girl and do whatever my consultant tells me is in Flump's best interests! This is a major break through, as the last time I had pyelonephritis was a few years back in my first year as a doctor - I was the surgical houseman on call and we were short staffed and there was no one who could cover. I worked, but had IV co-amox and gent at the start of each shift, at lunch time with a litre of saline and just before night handover for a week!!! I suspect this is the main reason I'm still being held captive here, as my consultant thinks I'll be back at work if he lets me go home... Tum-te-tum... ;-p
