After a really tough night at home since being sent home from the ER doctor, I had a home health nurse visit. The same nurse that had seen me the previous day and had sent me to OMC via ambulance the day before. Needless to say, I believe we were all a little confused about why I was so incredibly sick and was sent home anyway. But I digress. I continued to decline throughout the day and my amazing home health nurse made arrangements for me to be sent to UW ER to be admitted and treated by my specialists. Erin was there to help me pack and send me off. Mom waved at me through the ambulance doors and I was on my way.
The beginning of my UW hospitalization...
Mom met me at UW, boy was it nice to see a familiar face! This was the very start of the COVID-19 epidemic and they required she stay gowned up until I tested negative for her own safety. We didn't know much about the virus at this point and had no idea how widespread it had become!
