Default Sorry I've been sick

For any of you who know me on the forum my name is Steven aka Uriel. Last week I started not feeling well and just wrote it off as possibly the flu.
For 3 days I kept getting worse so finally after not being able to see my doc I went to the ER to find out what was wrong. after 8 hours there I found out I was severly dehydrated and my ph level was 7.29 (acidotic Normal is 7.35-7.45)
So I was admitted to the hospital on friday. By saturday morning I was spitting Puss looking stuff that tasted and smelled horrible and while my doc said my white blood cell count was normal I knew I had an infection.
After getting a specialist in everything got cultured and found out I had strep in my lungs (dont know how that happens but it did) so they started my on IV antibotics and spent saturday there in hopes I would get released sunday morning. Well sunday came and all was getting better when my potassum level and haemoglobin came back low.
Considering I was hypokalemic (low potassum) and how that plays a major part with the heart I got to spend another day in the hospital plus I was anemic.
Finally I got discharged monday morning after all my labs came back normal so now I can chat with you all here now.

I just wanted people to know that talk to me on a regular basis what was up since I wasn't on here for a while. Currently on antibotics still and closely being monitored with the fact I'm a diabetic on top of this and I work EMS as a medic. So have no fear papa nurgle has not diseased me in any way shape or form and I'll be on the forums boards chatting away with you all expecially with Farseer_Emlyn. later

Na just have to finish all of my amoxicillin other wise good chance it doesnt go away and bites me in the arse again unfortunatly I'm stuck with the diabeties (I have had a lazy pancreas for 20 yrs now) LOL! but yeah other wise im good I lost alot of weight which i'm not very big weight wise anyways but its coming back slowly. It was cool cuz saturday night alot of my friends at the shop came up to my room with some models I was working on and we started painting and putting stuff together LOL! If we could have moved the bed and had a bigger room we would have played with the only problem was playing around my IV pole on the floor LOL

To point out it spreads by leaving Strep throat untreated, if you leave it it will just spread and spread and spread, eventually reaching the heart and, well, you know what happens after that.

Yeah i knew that the funny thing was I never developed any symptoms at all till wensday morning when I felt a little crappy. So I either had it without symptoms or it quickly spread which i doubt the second considering it takes awhile to spread like that.
