Wow, I had a great visit to the ER. When I walked in, I started filling out the Triage form at the registration counter when I noticed the woman at the desk was reading my information as I wrote it and she got me registered before I was even done with the form. She rushed me right into triage past waiting people! Then they triaged me and walked to straight to a room, I had an attentive, friendly nurse and a receptive Dr. I left my house at 10:45 and was already receiving IV and Toradol by 11:30! They kept me on IV fluids and checked my pain level until 3 am when I was confident I could handle my pain at home! They got me from a pain level of 8-9 to a 3 within an hour!
I had to go when 2mg Dilauded at 8pm and a Darvocet at 9pm only reduced my pain from a 9+ to an 8.
The Triage nurse said taking a Darvocet after a Dilauded was like spitting in the ocean! LOL.
I still did not pass it, but it has moved to a more comfortable area. I am able to handle it with just heat and rest right now.
My kidneys are achy, my hands and feet are swollen, my head hurts, the house is a mess,I am way behind on laundry, my daughter has an appointment with a new dr at 2pm, and there is a potential hurricane coming straight at us tomorrow. I feel so lousy I do not even have the energy to get ready for a hurricane. DH has to go to work and I have to get it together to homeschool!
