Sick. Incredibly sick.
After a week in the hospital, we have a diagnosis, a plan, and unfortunately the plan is on hold while I take several antibiotics for an infection that none of us saw coming. I have another 10 days of taking it, then there is a waiting period before I am allowed to go for the plan.
The plan? A new Human Experimentation Protocol. This one is different than ones that I've taken part in before, in that the others were for "off label use." This one is for a drug that is so new that it doesn't have a name yet, just a series of numbers and letters. I have no idea whether it will help or hurt me.
All I know right now is that I am so sick, and my Home Health Care Nurse who was supposed to be at my home today at 3 pm to give me two liters more fluid because I am incredibly dehydrated as well as incredibly sick decided that she couldn't come and is now scheduled for tomorrow at 11 am.
I am out of bed writing this post only because I just made a trip (groan, another of a multitude of them) trip to the bathroom. I am so dehydrated that I am not even pishing again. At all. I only hope she shows up on time tomorrow.
Now, back to bed, where I feel so ill that I am not even working on anything. Just laying there.
