just a quick update:
I got here and was really sick with pressures in the 80's and pulse in the 130's. They gve me a liter bolus and am now o my foith bag and have only peed once. I am so nauseated, but finally after sleeping from 2-12 feel asl though I can take a sip of water. I am on reglan, zofran, compazine, and dilaudid.
I think not having a colon we can get sick so quick. Just an update. Love you all. Have not had time to read others.
