DAY 94 - Another Day in Paradise
Celebrated the day before my birthday by spending six hours in the emergency room. Unable to keep any food down. Stomach is upset; feels like it's on fire. Throat is constricted; makes me gag. Other than those things, I feel great!
Didn't come away with any real solutions--just EKG patches and an IV bandage. Got hydrated. Very boring. My butt got numbed sitting on the gurney. It was close to 100 degrees outside, so I went in wearing Levis and a T-shirt. It had to be 60 degrees inside. Had to wear four blankets over my feet and over my shoulders.
I'm at a loss as to what to do about keeping food down. I've basically not eaten in two days. May have to decide on the feeding tube after all. Will probably go below 140 by tomorrow morning.
Got lots of cool birthday cards from friends and relatives. Thanks to all you guys.
