#oneyearago was one of the hardest days of my life... I was on my #second day home from my surgery. Waiting until 3pm for my nurse to arrive to show me my feeding supplies and how to use them... 3pm couldn't have come soon enough. Every time I stood up, I'd black out, breathing was becoming more and more difficult, I was weak, tired and craving ice to the point of going outside for cupfulls of it.
What i didn't realize was I was going through my first of many #tachycardic episodes... As soon as my nurse seen me she looked at Robbie and basically told him I needed to go to the ER.
She set my fed up and off we went... #gastroparesis isn't just #starvingforacure the constant vomiting causes vitamin levels to be crazy, when your potassium is too low, you can go into cardiac arrest. You dehydrate really easily, which can cause kidneys to shut down... Life in general can get very painful... Needless to say, I ended up back in the ER the following Friday for a similar situation. That's when I was prescribed extra IVs for home.
I'm happy to report I'm doing much better with tube support. Since I've officially been diagnosed with #orthostatichypotension but I manage.
Sorry for the long story. #oneyearanniversary
