4 months in the hospital and I'm finally out!

Posted 03 October 2009 - 04:50 PM

I've been in the hospital for 4 months 2 in 2 out and 2 back in. For 6 months I haven't been able to eat, I lost 50 lbs, and I'm being feed through an IV called TPN for you medical nurses and doctors out there. It has been difficult, and for some reason when I was finally out and I was talking to my friend she asked if I had become more cynical toward the world, but it was quite the opposite. I have become so humble, thankful for what I have, and the health that I have, but more importantly that I'm alive.

I'm so thankful to be alive. I have been through a total of 33 hours of surgery in 2 months one being a straight 11 hours. Yeah, I know what you probably think my body is weak. I've been through alot, but now Im glad to be at the corner end of what has been a very terrible road for me this past 1/3 of a year.

Has anyone else been in a medical bind?

thanks, you know I picked up an ASP.Net MVC book and started programming while in the hospital. you know, to take my mind away from it all. I bought like 2 Sams Unleashed books, a book on google to keep my mind occupied.

Nothing like what you've gone through. They say whatever doesn't kill you makes you stronger.

I'm also thankful you are alive. :)

Once I was hospitalized for about a week, when I was about four. I had asthma & bronchitis. I remember they put me in a crib, but it had been so long since I had slept in a crib that I didn't realize that's what it was. I kept saying they put me in a cage. lol. There were two other little girls in the room with me, each in a crib, on either side of mine. The one little black girl told me, "This is how you call the nurse." Then she started yelling as loud as she could, "NURSE!" It was effective. :)

Anyway that's the only time I've had any serious hospitalizations, so I can not relate at all to what you have been though. :P I can sympathize, however. And I can be glad you are okay now.

ps. since when is 6 months equal to 1/3 of a year? And I thought you were good at math! :P

I was in the hospital for a week once with a broken arm. Maybe it was 2 days? I don't remember it was a long time ago.

Glad to hear that you're out!

I was hospitalized for 2 months with Spinal Meningitis when I was 2 years old. The doctors told my mother I would be severely mentally handicapped if I survived at all. To this day, she tells me they were right. *sigh* I love my mommy. :P

But I am very glad to hear you're out, about and on the road to recovery.

Nothing that drastic but I have had about half a dozen visits to the ER since the start of August, one exploratory procedure and a minor surgery last Tuesday. I'm happy to hear that you are doing well though. My longest hospitalization was for three weeks in the summer of 2008. After that one my attitude changed drastically. I was also very thankful for what I had because of what I lost.

Yeah, my attitude changed drastically it went from being really cynical to being very humble and thankful for what I have. SixOfEleven i also appreciate your XNA tutorials they're awesome! Keep up the good work.

That's just because you're a bad driver.

Not really had anything happen to me, but my wife had a bit of a rough pregnancy that had us in and out of hospital for a few months. It's not fun, and rarely an environment that is conducive to getting well.

Good luck with the rest of the recovery, now you're out of hospital it'll hopefully be a much more pleasant time!

Have you had a work related accident in the past 12 to 18 months? If so, you may be eligible for compensation.

Yes sir, if you fell of your ladder:

Or maybe if you've been crushed to death by a forklift, contact us today to find out if you could be eligible to receive up to FIFTEEN THOUSAND POUNDS* in compensation. And if you don't win... you don't pay!

Disclaimer: *but if you win, we'll be taking at least 99% of what you receive, plus expenses. That's right, fuckers: all your cash are belong to us.
