SPECIAL DIET

So I’m on a strict liquid diet, given that I’ve been having a lot of stomach pains. The tomato soup is the best soup the hospital has to offer (no joke) as well as the jello. The ensure was not that bad, it’s quite filling. Yet on the other hand, the Oikos Greek yogurt was [...]

PICC LINE

Today they put in a PICC line; it’s similar to a standard IV and is inserted in my upper left arm. It was somewhat a painful process but I get to keep it in for a year if needed. The joy of having the PICC line is that I don’t have to get poked or [...]

So I’m back in the ER after vomiting and feeling nauseated the past couple of days. I just can’t seem to keep anything down and it hurts soooo bad just to throw up. I think it was the combination of stress, overexertion, and simply not taking better care of myself after being discharged . I [...]
