So i have my first stomach bug since getting surgery almost 2 years ago!
I was really sore wednesday all day, but thought it was from keeping up with all them little boys on tuesday (2 three years and a four old are ALOT of work,lol) and i was really tired that day. But then Thursday morning at like 4am i woke up with bag like SOOO full and horrible tummy pains. At first i thought, oh crap i got a blockage! But i couldnt think of anything that would have caused one. I ached all over so bad that i could not even stand to lay in the bed so i got up and i was emptying my bag like every 30 minutes and i figured, well i dont have a bloackage with all this stuff pouring out of me, lol.
I had to get my grandma to come get my son to take him to school and take care of him, cause i just coudl not do it, i was so tired and so sore.
Anyway, I finally went back to sleep then woke up later and started throwing up. But I laid back down and went to sleep for a few minutes. then realized i was i was dehydrted when i ws dizzy laying down.
So on the advice of many posts i had read here, i went ahead and calld my husbnd to reserve me a room (he's and ER manager, very helpful!) and called my Mom to take me. And went on to the hosptial and got some fluids and some pain meds and some phenogren (thats tuff is awesome) and some protonix. I felt much better after that.
Then i ate soem fries on the way home, and those came out liek they should hae, although i still have alot of output. I slept for like 14 hours though! Only having to empty like every 2 hours of so. I ate a banana just now so hopefully that will help thiccken it up some.
Having a stomach bug (minus the ER trip) is much easier with a bag than the regular way though,lol.
On the way to the hospital i said, "i htought my days of going to the ER were over, but once in two years is much better than at least 5 a year."
So anyway, i got to get me better here today! Supposed to throw a party tonight for a friends bday, and the girl who is helpign me had surgery on Tuesday, so the two of us are gonna be quite the pair!
