Hi Everyone. I've been in the hospital 7 days and finally going home today. I went to the ER because I had been sleeping 3 days and finally took my temperature. It was 99.8 but I never have fevers so we went to ER. I was in septic shock, stabilized, and admitted. Even with 5 liters of fluid my blood pressure began dropping quickly. Medication brought it back up and saved my life. I know it sounds dramatic, but I was dying quickly.
I've been on the ward (sleeping) for a few days and all antibiotics were stopped yesterday. I'm exhausted but holding my own so I'm going home today. Love, Butterflake
