Hey! No dogs-drool (or poo-u) in the Lounge! Sit!! Now, -- out!!
Speaking of, though.... I'm pooped!
Spent the afternoon and evening at our satellite ER. Needed my fluids filled and topped off! Have an ongoing issue with lactic acid building up in my muscles. Normal is 2.2 ... Mine from Thursday was 6.75 (OMG!). However, my doc did not see it till today and ordered 3 IVs. But the company he asked to do it wanted to do it in my house but over 1 & 1/2 DAYS! So I went to the ER so they could run the IVs wide open (1,000 ccs per hour).
Soooo, no one got my vitals when I arrived--- oh no no no no! Bad bad practice! I asked for an EKG to rule out heart versus chest wall//muscle pain. Well, she ordered the blood draw and IVs, but not the EKG. THEN, the nice dr was sorta 'pushing' morphine by IV.... my usual answer is no, no, no.... but high lactic acid building up makes the muscles go into non-stop contractions and painful tremors. So by my 2nd IV bag, I had 1/2 cc of morphine on board---ahhh... better than a catnip spritz! Noticed my foot was swelling and showed doc (1st warning sign) but she shrugged it off.
But they had to send my LA re-draw downtown cos someone broke the on-site machine!. We were waiting... waiting... Hung bag 3... still waiting... An Aide finally came to do BP and TPR. He says my BP is 179 / 82 -- OMG, I'm never high like that! Dr comes in... (2nd warning sign) and I say, "Hey, whaddya do to my BP? Fluid overload??" I knew it was.... yep, she says (great, thanks).
Then she informs me bloodwork No.1 before the fluids was only 3.5 (they pulled the 2nd one after the fluids). So I should have had no more than 1,500 to 2,000 ccs, not 3,000 ccs Ugh. She said BP should come down in 2h. Well, I dropped to 145/80 in 20 minutes so they let me leave.
I did ask the dr if she'd come home with me and bring some 2cc morphine along LOL No, drat. LOLOL.
OMG I'm T-I-R-E-D. Whinmew Whinmew
Could someone make a big batch of catnip tea? I'll be in the recliner, listening to Pentatonix singing Bohemian Rhapsody.... and Imagine.... my 2 fav songs.
La la la meeee-ow ow ow... meow... me....owwww...
