This is Swampsniper's Daughter (Update at # 195, he's home)

Posted on 07/27/2013 6:04:05 PM PDT by Mary Litwin

Swampsniper is in the hospital. We called 911 this morning at 1AM. He is OK for the most part. Just really scared us. He is in room 4023 in Flagler here locally. He asked me to let you know what was going on. He should be coming home soon, and I may have over-reacted but I'd rather err on that side of caution in this case.

Prayers up!

IMHO you did not overreact. We are all grateful when our worst fears are not realized. And we are grateful if that which we fear comes to pass, that we have afforded the extra time that might be required by acting quickly.

Blessings to you, and Swampsniper, and your family

Hello! and prayers up! Thank you so much for letting us know, and please do keep us posted, if it is not too much trouble : / We will most definitely keep SS, (and you all!) in our prayers.

Please tell him to take it easy, and that we hope to be able to pray him home before any of his critters get to missing him, and we get to missing the beautiful pictures of them :)

May God keep watch,
Tatt

Not a problem. If it’s serious enough for him to be in the hospital, that they decided to keep him, then it’s plenty serious enough to post a prayer thread for.

They don’t keep people who they don’t think need it.

Prayers up.

I'm warm and still somewhat vertical, just home from the hospital, report later. It appears that most of what I was suffering from was side effects from all the wonderful crap I'm signed up for.

On the instruction sheet I got checking out some of my old prescriptions are listed as do not continue use of this, discard remaining supply.

What ever it was I couldn't walk and ended up getting 2 units of blood thru my carotid early on Saturday.

Damn computer broke 2, SIL is out looking for parts or cheap temp unit,so I won't take his computer over by force.

While I was in the hospital a power surge wiped out my computer. Had just enough cash left to pick up a Gateway box with Windows 8, and it is about to go back if I can't figure out how to make it act like a real computer.

Friday AM I woke up with my feet hurting really bad. Leg pains are a known side effect of the drugs I take for my lungs so I figured I would just pee in my emergency jug and sleep until the pain moved somewhere else. It never did, just got a lot worse and I started running a fever. Tried to get up and fell back on the bed. I got SIL Steve to pick up all 225 pounds of me and get me on the john before I did an Al Roker. I wasn't able to stand up and get back to bed. Daughter Mary figured I was about to leave this world on a porcelain throne and she called 911. The EMT crew had to haul me off the pot and out the front door cross country to the damned ambulance, in the damned dark. She rode in the ambulance with me.

Got to the hospital I think about midnite and they started sticking needles and wires all over the place. Then I heard them order 3 units of blood, I was all dried up.

I've been taking stuff for fluid retention, I think they gave me too much, way too much, I showed 15% kidney function at the hospital. Since I got hydrated they seem to be coming back on line, X rays and tests didn't show any serious obvious things, just well used 71 year old parts.

A new doctor came in and told me I couldn't walk because I had the wildest case of Gout he had ever seen, my feet were packed with Uric acid crystals. It hurts so bad you don't want the air to touch your feet, you just simply can't walk.

No more pee pills for me, I'll just go ahead and swell up until I bust.

I'm weak as a kitten didn't really get any sleep or food in the hospital. They torment you awake and the food is inedible and your talking to someone who can live in the woods on what I can catch with my hands. I can open a tray of hospital food and the scent just turns my stomach, I don't know how they manage to ruin it like that.

Missy has been raising Hell because Mary moved the kitty treats I keep by the computer and I couldn't find them. She got in my lap, stuck her head in my armpit and started moaning at me. I told her to go find Mary and she went marching out with her tail twitching, back in five minutes, grandson said Mary was taking a nap. She just got up and found the kitty snacks so it's a little bit calmer in here.

I'm gonna sleep some, then I've got to figure out how to make windows 8 work or replace it with win 7. In it's present oem form it's a sick joke.

I imagine my sense of humor will come back someday but I'm not betting on it.

Welcome back S, glad you’re feeling “better, I hope”.

Sometimes side effects of meds are most of people’s problems, IMHO.

Sometimes finding the right specialist doctor can work wonders. With my father, I find it’s hit or miss with docs. Some fantastic, others, gotta know when to replace them.

It never ceases to amaze me how they don’t seem very precise in their analysis, don’t seem to think about what patients eat, etc. Seems important to health to me, but I’m not a doc.

I can’t help you with Windoze.

Any of your kids or locals down there know about Linux ?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fedora_%28operating_system%29

It’s great to have you back, Swampsniper.
