Home Again!

Well I was released from the hospital on Wednesday and had to return on Friday. Chris & I splurged and went out to Red Lobster for dinner on Friday and got a big platter of fried fishy goodness. Well I knew that alcohol irritates pancreatitis (I can never drink again), but I didn't know that grease, or more specifically greasy & fried food also irritate pancreatitis. So back to the hospital I went. No real fun stories this time, just lots of sucking!

I was bored last night, halloween, so I took pictures to share with my friends. This first one is hideous, but I promised myself I would post it no matter how bad it turned out & it turned out BAD. My hair isn't greasy, it's wet from a shower.

The view from my bed, the TV and my little board telling who my nurses, etc are for the day. The TV is supposed to work as a computer, but the system was down while I was there, so no crazed dilaudid induced posts for you!

"Boo" the stuffed kitty that Chris brought me, because he knew I was sad.

The mess of stuff on my bed to try to keep me occupied, since I couldn't use the hospital computer thingie & I didn't have a book to read.

My I.V. painfully taped to my arm.

My bed. That's the one thing I love about the hospital, besides the fun drugs. I love those beds that you can make go in a zillion different comfortable positions.

That's about it, now you can feel like you visited me in the hospital. I'm sure you all wanted to, lol. Not a very exciting post, but it is what my life has been like this week and the blog is about my life, right?

It's good to be home & I'm going to spend this evening catching up on all of my friends blogs & seeing what you guys have been up to!

OK this sounds like a Halloween Horror story (just got done reading 3 posts about this). You poor thing. Painful, hospitalization, NO FUN.
Oh man - I hope you can rest and get better this week and that it never comes back.

I am so sorry you had to spend your Halloween in the Hospital. I hope you are feeling much better. I guess now it's all about finding what foods you can and can't eat. Big HUGS!

You better stay out of the hospital. We miss you here in blogland. Let's get together when you are feeling better.

Poor baby! I had no idea! I pray you are feeling much better now Mimi!

Carolina said...

Hope you remembered to wear undies this time ;-)
You look good for a very ill person. Poor Oskar. Another cat in the household.
I hope you feel better and will stay out of hospital. Lots of love and a big virtual hug for you!

Sara said...

No fun at all! Pancreatitis isn't a joke. Serious business. Please take care of yourself and get better! Glad you are home. The picture isn't bad, but you are definitely missing your zip. said...

OK this is the last time I want to visit your site and find out you have been in the hospital again!!! Seriously, I am glad you are home and doing well. Please keep it that way!

Joy said...

No drinking or fried food?!?!

What kind of snake-oil doctors were treating you? ;o)

Denise @ Sunflowers, Chocolate and Little Boys said...

You poor book OR computer. I would lose my mind! I am glad you are home and feeling better. AND I hope you never ever ever eat greasy fried food again, so you wont have to go through the pain and another hospital visit.

Poor Thang!
That sounds awful and your arm is pitiful! Sure hope you're home for good this time.
Being sick is not fun
and certainly not cheap!
