So I ended up in the ER again yesterday.
I spent the first 6 hours of the day with really bad diarrhea, and it got worse from there.
After spending a while sitting in the ER, I was taken back. Given IV Fluids, and taken to CT for a scan of my stomach (with contrast).
The ER itself was mostly un-exciting, except for when my IV popped during the CT from the Contrast Dye getting infused.
I apparently have “Bacterial Gastroenteritis” and have a 3 day course of Cipro (antibiotics) and have to follow up with a Gastroenterologist.
My main issue right now, is the nausea.
In the last 24hrs, I’ve had 2 small cups of Jello, and 1 piece of soft bread.
I’m STARVING here, but every time I get even close to the kitchen, I get nauseous and give up on it (at least till I get hungry again, and repeat the cycle).
We bought Chicken Broth, and even soft noodle soups for when I can stomach that. Also some Jello, soft non-sugar’d canned fruit, and probiotic yogurt.
We have so many things that I CAN eat, and even more that I CAN’T eat for a few days… Our fridge is FULLY stocked… And yet there is nothing I feel I could eat right now.
