Last Week's Hospital Stay
“This is a damn good outlet to spew the bullshit off my brain!” Stone Cold Steve Austin
Throughout the week, I will add bits and pieces to my Microsoft Word Blog page. An effective tool that I like to use for every week’s blog. Once Monday comes around, all I need is to ‘Copy’ what I have written and ‘Paste’ the words on my new blog’s page. Piece of cake. The way this week has transpired, I am behind. Hell, it is 9:50pm on Friday night and I cannot sleep. Instead of sitting in bed, tossing, and turning, I might as well make myself useful. Catch up on my blog. With hope people will read it this week.
Make sure you get the insurance information correct. Then we will take care of the patient who needs immediate care! In time, they gave me morphine for the pain that did nothing for me. They performed an EKG to rule out heart issues, which turned out negative (Thank God). Sent to have a CT Scan to rule out blood clots, which I had none. Returned to my room when once again, I waited for my Doctor, any Doctor. I do not recall how long it took. Pain remained a ten. They gave me a different pain killer that I do not recall. The only thing that did was lower my oxygen level. Nothing dangerous, but it required help to raise my levels, oxygen flowing through small tubes in the nose to raise my levels once the medicine wore off. There I sat for 7-8 hours. Still in pain. Seeing a Pulmonologist was the next step. That proved difficult as UW East does not have one. But the Main Hospital does. Big problem was they had no open beds. Now what. Finally, Meriter Hospital had open beds. One quick ambulance ride to Meriter Hospital !!!
Cool news for this week:
1.) I will be interviewed for the following podcasts: First time guest on the “Chronically Fascinating Interviews by Hydrate Club Podcast” on Thursday. And a second time guest on the “Cure Chronic Podcast” on Thursday as well.
2.) I will have another interview for “The Lupus Living Podcast.” The first was an informal discussion
3.) No release date for my interview with “The Real Life Show: Living with a Chronic Illness Podcast." I can't wait for a sample to listen to it.
4.) I sent an email to “The Chronic Sisters Podcast” a couple of weeks ago, figuring I had nothing to lose but my time, and they are interested. Emailed a copy of my book. The podcast is hosted and recorded in Australia!!! They drop ‘F’ bombs like Ruth from the Netflix show “Ozark” (Awesome show). I must be creative, trying to find unique ways to market myself and my book.
