After hearing back from the doc today, my bloodwork is such that he believes IV steroids (possibly other stuff too) are necessary.  Low RBC and a high WBC (over 20).  After a brief crying jag, and some time to get used to the thought, I will be admitted tomorrow.  The nurse will start the process when she starts in the morning and will call me when I have a room "reserved".
 
I've started a list of things to take with me to occupy my time:  book, laptop, ipod...  The all important pjs and slippers.  Are my personal blanket and pillow too much?  Besides the fact that I have to carry it all in?
 
Any of you who have been in this spot, do you have some advice?  What can I expect?

Definitely bring your personal blanket and pillow! Also, I'd bring some t'shirts and sweatpants or something because you'll get sick of that hospital gown (especially if you stay for a while). Books are important (ones that will lift your spirits), and a few gossip magazines are also helpful for a good distraction. :) Most of all, just be sure to have things there that make you happy. Call me if you need to!!! Just try to keep it in your mind that this will all be for the best and will get you back into remission somehow, surgery or not.

Hang in there, trooper!

Oh no! I'm so sorry to hear that- one hand, it's a good thing because you will feel better soon, but on the other hand, being in the hospital just stinks. I've only ever been admitted straight from the ER, so I didn't have anything with me but the clothes on my back. A few good books or mags would've been nice, though. Did he give you a ballpark estimate of how long he thinks you'll need to be in? What a drag...you've been going thru a lot- try to keep your spirits up.

I was admitted last Fall for the same reason, but I was so sick I didn't even care that I had to go in. Hang in there!

Definitely bring your cell phone -- my IV pole and my weakness/fatigue made it difficult to reach the hospital phone. And if it's programmed, then you have all the phone numbers you might need. Bring some anti-bacterial wipes, I just read somewhere that the tv remote/nurse call button is the germiest surface in the room, even more so than the toilet. I also brought some hand sanitizer to use before eating. Bring toothbrush, toothpaste, face wash, and deodorant, as well as some undies. I really needed to stay in the hospital gown, due to placement of a picc line, and they had pj bottoms that I added when cold, but frankly with all the sweats from the steroids I was hot often. They will give you new socks that have stickies on the bottom so you don't slip on the floor. Books and cheesy magazines are good. A friend brought me some Sudoku and word puzzles, which was nice. And prepare to watch a lot of mindless tv. Oh, also bring a pad of paper and a pen -- helped me keep track of questions for my doc, etc.

Lastly, be diligent about double checking what meds you are brought, ultimately you have to take responsibility for your care. Check every bag they put on your IV pole. During my 12 day stay there were TWO medication errors made, once they put a nutrition bag for another patient (age 90) on my pole, and I flipped a lid when I noticed. You need to advocate for yourself, or have a loved one around who can do it for you. If someone is having trouble putting in an IV or taking blood, firmly but politely request someone else -- they will bring up someone from the ER or phlebotomy to do it. My dr told me to do this, as we who are immunocompromised are at risk for infection, and we don't need extra needle sticks.

Don't forget your chargers, and yes on the pillow. An eye mask for the early morning light, and earplugs for the darn machines that beep all night!
I have had 2 hospital stays with my daughter in 2 weeks, and came home exhausted. Bring short sleeve t-shirts, so they don't touch the IV, and a zip hoodie for the cold.
You will feel better in a hurry, and the hospital will give you labs back with lightening speed, compared to a doc's office or general lab. One thing that is kinda cruel for UC patients is the IV and monitor hookups, when you have urgency issues and they need samples of EVERYTHING ALWAYS. You'll get good a maneuvering the IV line and it's lil' wheels into the potty room. They may also put you in a "control" room, with special precautions for all those entering and exiting. I felt quilty about all of the wasted yellow gowns and poor employees that had to don all of that extra stuff. It takes 2-3 days to make sure you don't have any stool infections, so don't take it personally if you are solo and have a scarlet letter on your fancy outfit!
Hang in there, and be nice to the nurses....they respond faster when emptying your "hat"!

Try as hard as you can for a private room.  I was first put into a room with two other people b/c they really didn't know how long I would be there and what a nightmare.  One person watched T.V. all day and half the night and the other bed was occupied by three different people in three days--all had visitors throughout the day, talking, talking, talking and the amount of nurses, assistants, etc that come in to take care of three people is constant.  I couldn't get any rest, by the third day I was exhausted, sleep deprived and my GI made some calls and got me a private room, thankfully, b/c I ended up in the hospital for two weeks.  Oh, hard candy--GI had me on no liquids/food for almost a week to heal up and then I graduated to hard candy, lifesavers, etc. for two days.  Good luck.  Oh, one more thing, I had someone bring me a eye mask, every morning the lab people come in at 5-6 a.m. to take blood work and just walk in and flip the light on w/o warning, personally I thought it was a sadistic reaction to having to work that early in the morning.

Bring some cash and credit cards with you..... I always run out of money while I'm in the hospital. You need it for the tv and phone (most hospitals now let you use your cell phones).

Hey dakota I was just reading your post.  I have been in the same situation as you twice...once in march of 07 and then again in october of 07.   My counts were low and high just like yours, I was hospitalized and put on IV steroids both times I also had to have blood transfusions both times also.  My UC was flaring both times that I was hospitalized, march I was really sick.  I couldn't eat anything without throwing up and I lost weight and that went on for ten days before I went to the ER.  But they are going to put you on IV steroids, possibly give you blood transfusions and they will bring you your daily medication, not sure if they will low maintenance your diet, they did with me because I wasn't tolerating solids.  Is your UC flaring?  I know my counts go out of whack only when I am flairing.  Let me know how everything goes.

If you're using the bathroom a lot, bring your own toilet paper. Nothing worse than a raw bottom from using the hospital's "newspaper" toilet paper. I had to have my husband bring me some A&D ointment, because I became so raw.

Also someone mentioned hand sanitizer. I had to use a porta potty, because I physically couldn't get up and tied to an IV pole, so I had no way of washing my hands after using the toilet.

You probably won't get much sleep. They insist on poking you at all hours.

Last time I was in, I was so happy to go home, so I could rest. Sounds crazy, but that's how it was.

I'm a bundle of nervous energy. The hospitals are both full. I'm "first" on the waiting list at one - the other is on "diversion"...

I thought things would happen this morning and now it's almost 1:00. I feel like I'm wasting time. I don't do well at home just "resting". I know I need to be as my muscles are very tight and it feels like I have about three charlie horses in my legs.

I called the nurse AGAIN (second time today - I feel like a pest). I asked that if she wasn't super busy that she call me back and let me know what to expect when I get checked in (if that ever happens).

I know I need to be patient and chances are that I'm not going to be healed overnight. But it's hard!!! I would tell someone in my place to just enjoy the time off - but I feel guilty!!!

Ugh!

Never heard of the hospitals being full! Does that mean if you went in from the ER you couldn't be admitted? Interesting.

I've never heard of this "full" hospital thing either!

I got the "call" that my "room" was ready around 3pm. FINALLY at 5pm I was escorted to my room.

The plan is solumedral intraveneously every eight hours. Flagyl. Tramdol for pain. And a liquid diet. UGH. Xanax available if necessary along with something to sleep since "hospitals aren't quiet".

My mood is miserable right now. The nurse that's on for the next hour and a half is nice. I'm trying very hard to be personable - she doesn't deserve the miserable me right now.

Gosh I hope this works quickly - when they finally have a chance to get the IV started. The evening pain is starting to set in. I'm sure I'll be updating frequently out of shear boredom :)

Yes, a roommate :( The doc has requested a private room, but I'm not holding my breath.

Doc says I'll probably be here until Tuesday. That surely didn't make my day. I'm still waiting for my meds. The pain has started, and I'm a bit irritated since I told them it would by now. I thought I'd give them fair warning. Update: just got the painkiller.

Good news is I have wifi access. I'm trying very hard to keep my thoughts on the positive side and not focus on the negatives. I'm ready to just zone out for the night - hopefully the tramadol kicks in quickly.

Solumedrol is the IV prednisone... The "fun" one as far as I'm concerned.

I'll take those happy thoughts :) Thank you!

dakotagirl so sorry to hear that you are in the hospital, even though it is rough for now hopefully it will get you kickstarted into feeling better.  I have been in your spot a few times before and feel your frustration when sitting there hooked up to IVs.  I want to add to all of the wonderful positive energy going your way... especially that the private room works out for you!

Dawn, with the meds they give me, I usually sleep a lot in the hospital. Of course, I'm always post-op and getting a lot of pain medication. I'm glad you have your computer available; when you get sick of daytime TV (that should take about ten minutes) you can surf the internet. Since you know when your pain starts, ask for the medication an hour and a half before. And don't ask for it in an hour, tell them you need it now. Since it will take 30-45 minutes for them to get to you with it, that will give it time to work before the pain starts.

Ugh, I'm sorry you have to share a room. It seems all of the hospitals here have gone to only private rooms. It's really nice, because I would never rest in a room with a stranger. I hope you get an empty bed for a room mate soon.

Feel better, and try to get some rest.

Dawn....you'll have to try to go with the flow and realise you have to do this in order to get better.

Keep us posted as to how you're feeling. The time will hopefully go quickly.

I agree with the others.....REST!

Hey Dakotagirl~~!!! 

  I haven't posted here much lately, and I saw your post and just HAD to log in and say "Howdy"~! So sorry to hear you are in the hospital, but at least now you'll get some much needed attention, (maybe not wanted attention, but needed attention) and get going in the right direction at last. I recommend playing some internet games since you have access, when I'm sick and stuck in bed, that's what I do and it really helps pass the time. If you're like me, sitting still is almost IMPOSSIBLE, so concentrate on this time and realize that your body really needs it, some downtime is necessary in times like this to allow our bodies to heal without any complications of added stressors or activities. I hope this time helps heal your body and the medicine they are giving you acts fast and you can get out of there in a timely manner...

 Hang in there and know we're all wishing you healing thoughts!!

The last time my FIL had to go to the hospital, the regular one he goes to said they were full and then he went to another hospital and as soon as he was admitted, that one became full too! I think it's that respitory illness that is going around that is filling up the hospitals. At least here it is.

Did the tramadol help with your pain? I've taken that in the past and it didn't touch my pain but it did give me hallucinations lol Not nice....How are you feeling today Dawn?

Hi all.

Doing okay considering. I don't like this, but have resigned myself to healing. IV meds suck. The solumedrol burns like the dickens!!! Literally taking my breath away - I must tell myself to breathe.

The tramadol is a waste. I need to ask the nurse to check on something else. It makes me a bit more relaxed, but doesn't touch the GI pain the way I would like.

No change yet, besides I haven't had solid food since lunch yesterday - oh wait, that cookie I couldn't pass up around 4:00 before I was admitted... So I have some gurgly guts, but only expelling mucous.

It's strange that with their liquid diet they give me milk products. I like milk and ice cream and they are more "solid" than broths etc - but interesting none the less. I'm a picky eater - so this has been fun. I'm craving all sorts of solid foods (fajitas, sandwiches, etc) but soup and cereal take my appetite away. But I did ask the nurse and a latte is okay - decaf being my preference. I'll have to tote my IV downstairs later...

So all in all, attitude is better today.

You can always ask for Vicodin for the pain. I had to use that in the past and I can honestly say that I felt NO pain afterwards! lol Glad to see you're in better spirits today.
