Hello everyone, just checking in, still pretty much miserable here, I'm in a right bitchy mood and frankly it's unlikely anyone can say the right thing right now. The nurses thought they were doing such a nice thing having the 'pet therapy dog' that visits the chonic care unit come to visit me, but ya know, my own dogs are one thing, I'm sick, I'm in agony and frankly I have ZERO desire to see, touch or make small talk about someone elses dog. I felt badly when they left, I'm sure they figured it was going to be this wonderful thing to lift my spirits.
I will be having the cat scan at 1:00 this afternoon. Of course because I'm allergic to shellfish, I'm also alergic (although mildly) to the contrast dye they make you drink and apparently it's fairly imperitive that I have the dye, so last night and today I'm on very high steroid doses plus IV benadryl to counter the effects of the dye (for some reason I had to drink a dose of it last night and another one at noon today) ever had a horribly itchy tongue--anyone know how to really scratch your tongue???? Anyway, I suppose the purpose of today is to rule out bowel obstruction (which is a possibility since I haven't gone in 3 days now) I'm so sick of this pain and I'm so sick of sitting in a stupid hospital bed. I don't feel I can take care of Molly properly here and although they make him stay so I don't have to take care of Molly alone at night, Steve is all but useless to me, she's in bed with me, if she needs something it takes him like 20 bloody minutes to drag his lazy ass out of the bed, so the crisis is pretty much over by the time he begins to respond. I've now got her in cloth diapers even here, I don't konw if I'm putting them on wrong or what but she kept leaking out of the disposables, she's peed through 4 outfits now, I thought the attraction of disposabes was how much they hold??
Anyway enough of my crap, who's having a baby today??????
Please send good thoughts for around noon today.
