ER Visit #4

Part 1 of my family doctors plan is being carried out right now. Back to the Emergency Room we go.  I believe that the Topomax had begun to wear off again and the headache was back and in full force.  And since the Dr. recommended that I go to the ER if the headache returns in the same severity, it was off the to ER I went.

All set for the trip in. Bright sun not good for rebound headache at any level.

March 7th

All checked in to the ER. Going to get another CT, more blood work, an pelvic ultrasound because why not.  My period started when I left the hospital on February 19th and hadn’t stopped. So I suppose it’s just a precaution.  This was the worst test ever and I am already in so much head pain…did they really need to throw that fun test in.

Pelvic ultrasound is used by doctors to examine female reproductive organs. This includes the uterus, fallopian tubes, ovaries, cervix, and vagina.”

I have quite the collection of hospital bands, I should make a collage:) (Oh that collection just keeps growing and growing).

By the end of today I have been admitted for the 2nd time in a month. This time I brought a change of underwear, my rice bag (which has already been heated up for me once PTL), ear plugs and my pillow. (I actually keep a bag packed at all times now, just in case, even a year later).  I am one room over from my last stay and have already been seen by the same PA and the same night nurse should be here soon. Great staff here on the 8th floor at Sparrow.
