Today was a really bad day, which started at 01:00 AM (one hour after midnight). I passed out getting out of bed to go to the bathroom. The reason for passing out was that my Oxygen level had dropped below 75% during my sleeping. Getting out of bed was a bad idea, but how would I have known that the level was too low for me to get out of bed for this test?
I was taken by ambulance to the hospital. After finding a bed for me, the Infectious Disease Group took charge. They started right away with blood tests and a Chest CT scan. The rest of the day I rested and answered questions for the various doctors and nurses. Interesting was the fact that the Hospitalist informed me that they will not only look at the progress of the fungus treatment but also look at the bacterial side for any infections.
There is not much more to report since I rested for the rest of the day. I had the normal interruption of vital checking and taking medications during the night.
