Over this last 5 weeks I’ve spent 3 weeks in hospital. I was first admitted full of hallucinations and then released when I seemed to come to myself again. They found an infection which they blamed for the problem.
I may have seemed to be back to normal but I was soon back to confused again sure in my mind that my brother and I were out for drinks. That in itself was strange as neither of us drinks. The place I thought was the bar was was actually the reception at the hospital.For some reason I was carrying about £800 so we could have had a few rounds.
As I came round this time I found my daughter has been asking questions regarding my release and reasons for the illness itself. Though the infection was there and was partly responsible it seems they now blamed Diabetes and were going to change me from a Type 2 diabetic managed by tablets to a Type 2 diabetic managed by Insulin. I manages to get discharged because I’d had promise of discharge for 3 days and been let down twice.In the end I was given an insulin pen and released to give myself injections in the stomach.
I’ve been doing the injections for 5 days having mistakenly thought I’d broken the pen. The major worry at the moment is that my sugar levels are showing very high even though I’m not eating much (great diet, I’ve lost 2 stones). Today I had a glass of milk and a coffee (no sugar), I’d have expected a lower reading before taking the insulin. So, the insulin jabs are OK and though the hospital say the infection is over I don’t think they’re right but that’s for my doctor to sort out. I don’t feel confused at the moment so no doubt they won’t rush. I shall just be expected to keep up with the insulin and keep my head together.Keep my mood together as it’s low and that can have an effect, and look to find my energy level again as so far it’s on the run.
So if you don’t hear from me it’s not because I can’t follow your blog again, I may be back in the hospital or I may be celebrating feeling better. But I’ll be thinking of you.
