Not so good Health Update

Day #2 in CCU not looking good...

No food or water not even ice chips in 2 days and then *I* didn't eat the day before that because I had a cold and no one is hungry on a cold. So in the past 72 hours I've had in total 2 pieces of string cheese and a can of GInger Ale mixed with Orange Juice, that was about noonish on Wednesday...

They are pumping me full of steroids which means my insulin intake on the pump is through the roof, 18 units an HOUR not a day but an HOUR!'

I'm on 100% oxygen with breathing treatments every 3 hours. They are gonna send me to have a CT to check for embolisms in my lungs and if that fails to yield any results.

They are going to incubate me again.

Happy ALMOST ten year anniversary, I get to do it all over again. Yes, coma, subsequent muscle atrophy, rehab all over again.

I am frankly terrified. I would rather die than go through this again.
I cannot describe the horror I am feeling facing this again.
