Hospital Day 5

Have I mentioned that I hate C-Diff? Because I do. This stupid virus/infection/spawn of hell just will NOT go away. I am better than I was when I was admitted on Monday, but I am not BETTER. They are upping my medication today so hopefully that will help. I'll probably be here until Sunday or Monday. Hopefully not longer than that! I've been passing the time on the Internet and reading, mostly. One of Joe's students was kind enough to pass along her step-father's Netflix info for me, so I can watch movies online too. I watched one yesterday and that was a nice time killer. I also really need to learn to nap during the day here, since I never get any sleep at night. Why do they need my temperature at 2:00 AM?!?!? The good news is that the babies are doing just fine! I saw them this morning on an ultrasound and they were flipping all around and being goofy. That makes me happy - I'd much rather be here because something is wrong with me than because something is wrong with the babies! So I'm just hanging in here and waiting to miraculously get better so I can go back home. Joe keeps promising to smuggle Roy in for me, but so far my room is kittenless....

Oh, and I have to give a shout-out to the Freehold Township High School yearbook staff! Joe is the advisor of the yearbook and their awesome book won 8 out of the 10 awards given at the district-wide awards ceremony last night. No real surprise since their yearbook rocked, but praise-worthy nonetheless. :)

glad to hear you are doing better! I've heard much about c-diff from the hubs (RN student), so I'll hate it for you too. hope the upped meds kick c-diff's figurative butt

Keep it up! I know hospital can be tiring. I wonder if you asked your head doctor if he/she could place an order that your 2am (or whatever early morning time) vitals be held. If you've been afebrile then they might do that to let you get more sleep...sleep is important for healing AND growing those babies! Wouldn't hurt to ask!
