Yea it's a hospital in a major city- we have a few hospitals here and for some reason it's super busy!
They have a ton of hand sanitizer machines the nurses are using when the come in and out. I chose to still use the bathroom and gown up, add a mask and gloves, all to get to the bathroom. Mind you I also have urgency and hadnto unplug my IV machine and get to the restroom in time. Wasn't exactly gen most convenient. But I wanted the privacy more than using the commode.
They did actually move me to another room, which is closer to a bathroom. It's quieter and less exposure. They didn't tell me why they were moving me but I overheard them say it was confirmed that the woman who I was rooming with before has the flu.
Idk what I would do cupcakes- if I had to do a prep on a commode! Wow. I feel for you, I do!
I'm feeling a ton better. I know I prob still have a long way to go but I'm only going once every other hour and no blood. I think being forced to just sit here and rest is helping, along with the prednisone, the IV fluids, and not eating any solid food- I actually only got clear liquids this evening.
Tomorrow is another flexsigmoid and then we will figure out if I need Remicade.
Thanks for the support guys. Way more comfortable than I was a few days ago. Or even yesterday. It's amazing what some good care can get u.
