In hospital AGAIN

Hi all, Just got out of hospital again. I went in on Friday. I started having severe cramps and vomiting. Called doctor and told him how bad I had had diarehea from chemo. He said it sounded like I had dehydrated. Went to hospital, and sure enough, that was what was wrong. Also, while I was in there I had my bone scan and MRI. I had never had an MRI like this one. It took two hours. I am not claustrophopic, but I had a panic attack, just as they brought me out. Took me an hour to quit shaking. I didn't like that at all. I just got out of hospital today. Was on lots of pain and nausea meds and IV to get rehydrated. So...I'm back again. I hope longer this time. Seems this road is slowly slipping out from under me. I was so sorry to hear about another semi-colon passing. I know she is in a better place but I'm sure her husband misses her a lot. Everytime I tell my husband about someone passing on here, he gets "that look" on his face. He is so scared that I'm not going to beat this. Truth is, so am I. But...I, like everyone else here, will fight to the end. Just want to take time too, to say that "I love each and everyone of you" 'sob'
Love and prayers, Judy(grandma047)

    Welcome back. I keep an eye out for you. As I have stated many times you have to be the strongest person I know. Even with all the crap happening to you you still show a positive and wonderful attitude. Keep up the faith. Remember to crawl up on Jesus's lap from time to time and have yourself a good talk.
    Hugs and prayers to you and yours.

    Judy, I am am both so sorry that you're having a rough time and also so RELIEVED that it was dehydration from the chemo. I remember how hard it was to drink sometimes when I was on chemo. Good luck rehydrating. Good luck staying positive. We are all with you.

    Hi Judy,
    I am sorry to hear that you are sick. I am glad you are home and recovering. Don't get too worried, I was in the hospital a few weeks ago for dehydration too (I had the flu). I am sending prayers up for you.

There was a time I had to go to the hospital for the same thing.I was so sick I couldn't lift a spoon to my mouth. Hey, I got throught it! :-) It was tough and just as tough on my hubby, but we are too determined and strong like bull! This is Xena cancer warrior talking. YOU CAN DO IT!
