I've been in the hospital for the past week, what I thought was just some cold like symptoms turned out to be sepsis and severe anemia. I went into the hospital Monday/Tuesday morning with chest pain and shortness of breath, sat in the ER with the local meth heads for a few minutes until they brought me back. I'm sure they thought it was run of the mill BS at first, but after bloodwork, I was renamed the "trainwreck in 20". My heart rate was 130, respiratory high 20s, and fever of 101.5, my lactic acid was 6.4 and my hemoglobin was 6.something too. Troponins were slightly elevated (but were assumed to be because my heart was working so hard). I spent two or three days in ICU and got 4 units of blood about twice as much fluids and have been on every antibiotic there is. I was scoped and (hopefully) the bleeding was found and taken care of. I've been discharged back to home to recuperate. I'm not expected to be able to return to work for at least a week, and I can't do very much anyways without getting short of breath. I think I feel worse than when I had cancer to tell the truth. I'm sleeping a lot and just being a general couch potato for the time being. I'm online here and there (even Facebook seems to sap my energy). I'm alive and kicking (just feeble).

Welcome back. Wow, that sounds like an amazingly rough time, am glad you are in the processes of recovering though. Hopefully, it will be a speedy recovery and life can get back to normal for you.

Geeze. So lazy! haha

Hope you get to feeling better soon! Being sick is the worst, but you always manage to get the worst of the worst. Bleh!

Well I ended up in the hospital again. Same problem same fix. Got more blood. I'm home again, still feeling feeble bit better than last week. I actually logged on today for a few hours. If anything I'll probably be off and on a good bit while I recover.

Thanks for the well wishes.

Geeze! Stay away from the hospitals already!
