    Default ColoradoJuli back in the hospital

    Apparently I have a couple new clots and the Dr put me in the hospital on Tuesday. The main thing they are doing right now is monitoring me and trying to get the pain under control. I was told that I could go home once the pain can be controlled with pills instead of a pump so today I asked for the pump to be DC'd. Bad decision on my part. I'm playing catch-up tonight trying to get ahead of the pain. I guess if I don't sleep well tonight I will ask for the pump tomorrow.

    I'll keep you all updated.

    Here's to a speedy and QUICK recovery. Having just recently spent a week in the hospital, including thru Christmas, I can empathize with the discomfort you're experiencing. My stay was a most miserable one, so hopefully yours won't be as bad. Best wishes to you dear lady.

    Reading is fundamental. It's just that for some, it's more mental than fun.

    I'm so sorry to hear this. You've had a rough few years. I sincerely hope that things will start to turn in your favor soon.
    I know everything, and I'm always right (just ask my husband).

    It may not have been such a bad move after all. You now know that you aren't ready for the pump. Be confident in your doctors abilities. He or She, along with all of us, all want the same thing. For you to recover. Hospital stays are usually never pleasant. In my case, when I was in the hospital, I took advantage of doing character studies on patients and staff. Try and find ways of keeping your mind occupied and involved. I know you have faith. Rely on what you know.

    Thanks for keeping us informed.

    Many prayers going out to you! I work in Cardiology at St Mary Medical center and often see the problems you are having. Please stay on the pump as long as you need, while in pain your recovery is hindered. Rest is the best thing along with monitoring you pt/inr. Hang in there better days will come!!!

    I'm out of the hospital. YEAH!!!

    I got sent home with lots of pain medications and am trying to manage the pain. I've slept well the past couple of nights and Scott is waking me every 3 hours to stay ahead of the pain. Not sure why, but last night my foot was pretty swollen. I was off my foot all day long, yet it still swelled.

    So I'm at home and happy to be here. We are doing a pretty good job keeping the pain under control. Thanks for all of your thoughts and prayers.

    Julie, do you have an IVC filter in yet?? Your doctor has probably done this already but,if not, it is an important thing to ask about to keep clots from travelling to your heart, lungs, brain.
    I hope everything is under control quickly! Don't be shy about using the pump, people in real pain don't get "addicted" to Morphine when they truly need it. Feel better soon! Mrs. BC
