Darn it, back in the hospital again.

Well CMV reared it’s ugly head. I’m back in the hospital again. 2 weeks ago went to my GP for a cough that wouldn’t go away. Ended up getting a lung drained for 1.8 ltr of fluid. Went to Tacoma, laid low for a couple of days and drove back for labs last Wednesday. Saturday night got a phone call to report to Liver Teams hospital. At this point they were concerned over the cough and the fact that the cough was still there. Chest X-ray ultra sound, lung is full of fluid again. They again drained it, 2.280ml this time. They’d had me on antivirals for CMV since day one. These are hard on the kidneys and mine have been challenged since day one.
This morning the PA is saying all the numbers are good. I’ll take it but they want me one more day to be sure it stays that way.
Sigh, can’t catch a break.

You have my sympathy, I hate hospitals and I go to one of the best, but I just hate hospitals.
Perhaps I just hate being sick enough to be put in one, but I hope tomorrow brings good news.
