Hospital signs and symptoms of yeast infection swistle

I wrote a long post about where I was right signs and symptoms of yeast infection now (children’s hospital) and why I was there (edward sinus infection), and when I proofread it later, I noticed it was very boring. So I re-wrote it and made it a lot shorter, hoping that that would reduce the boredom if only by signs and symptoms of yeast infection reducing the bulk, and I was also very charming about how much I signs and symptoms of yeast infection like being in hospitals. Then I hit post, and that is when wordpress, which is what I used to write this blog, asked for my password, and I gave it, and when I had entered the password, it brought me to the old version of the post. Usually when this happens (why does it ever, EVER happen???), I can get the other post back. This time, nothing worked. I am starting to feel as if the universe is signs and symptoms of yeast infection trying to protect you from a long boring post and/or a post in which I brag about my own signs and symptoms of yeast infection charm.

I will SUMMARIZE why we are here, as I did in the SECOND version, the version that was lost. Friday night edward seemed ill and had a fever. Saturday morning I took him to urgent care, and the doctor said it was a sinus infection and signs and symptoms of yeast infection prescribed an antibiotic. Tuesday I called the pediatrician to say he was no signs and symptoms of yeast infection better, and they gave me an appointment that morning, and at that appointment they sent us to the emergency signs and symptoms of yeast infection room. The emergency room did a CAT scan and labwork, and sent edward by ambulance to the children’s hospital in the nearest big city, and he started IV antibiotics. Wednesday evening edward had surgery to get stuff out of signs and symptoms of yeast infection his sinuses. Today we are seeing how that went and whether he signs and symptoms of yeast infection will need a second surgery. We have been here for two nights and will be signs and symptoms of yeast infection here for at least a third night.

Boy, that is still pretty long. You will have to take my word for it that signs and symptoms of yeast infection the original version gave that same information (plus more detail than anyone would want about which doctors signs and symptoms of yeast infection we saw and what his symptoms were and the entire signs and symptoms of yeast infection evolution of the treatment plan) in triple the words.

I will now tell you some reasons you might want signs and symptoms of yeast infection me as your hospital companion, and I will try not to be as obvious about signs and symptoms of yeast infection my own charm. …no, I have tried several drafts, and there is no way to do it. I am just very charming about hospitals. Except: there is a shower in our room, and I don’t know if I’m allowed to use it or if it’s just for the patient, and I’m too shy to ask, and there are no towels so I can’t just sneak one, and also there are people coming into the room continually signs and symptoms of yeast infection but unpredictably, so I feel as if the MOMENT I stepped into signs and symptoms of yeast infection the shower, an entire team of medical professionals would arrive. And a person might think, “well, of COURSE you are allowed to use the shower! That is what it is THERE for!”—except that when I stayed in the maternity ward long signs and symptoms of yeast infection ago, the nurses were very strict about the room’s bathroom being ONLY for the patient, NOT for guests. And it wasn’t just the shower: guests were not allowed to use the toilet, either. Guests were supposed to use the bathroom down the hall. And “guests” included the baby’s other parent. So I think it is VERY POSSIBLE that this shower signs and symptoms of yeast infection is only for edward, and that’s why there are no towels in there, because he cannot shower yet. And you may well sigh with impatience about my reluctance signs and symptoms of yeast infection to JUST ASK, WHAT IS THE HARM IN ASKING, but you KNOW staff can get a little snippy about signs and symptoms of yeast infection things like that, you KNOW they can. Like, SOME of them will say really nicely, “oh, I’m sorry, the shower is only for patients!” and seem genuinely understanding and regretful about it, but OTHERS of them will act as if you’ve suggested violating HIPAA in there.

Paeds doctors from the UK here – at least at our hospitals, the whole “toilet is for patients only” thing is an infection control issue – the idea is that you don’t want to be spreading germs between patients, visitors and staff. When you’ve just had your hoohah ripped apart by your lovely signs and symptoms of yeast infection new baby, the last thing you want is to be sharing a signs and symptoms of yeast infection toilet seat with the doctor who has just seen another signs and symptoms of yeast infection patient or the visitors who’ve just got off a public bus. I guess it’s a slightly different situation as most british mums on signs and symptoms of yeast infection the postnatal ward won’t usually be in a private room with an en signs and symptoms of yeast infection suite, but the same principles apply.

On our paeds wards, the parents of kids in bays have designated parent bathrooms. However, if you’re in a side room, the toilets and showers in your room are considered to signs and symptoms of yeast infection be for the patient and parent – since you’re living in the same room, your germs are already all up in each other’s business, so not as much need to separate. Since you’re expected to stay with your kid, there should absolutely be a shower available for you somewhere signs and symptoms of yeast infection on the ward and don’t let anyone make you feel inconvenient for asking to signs and symptoms of yeast infection use one. In fact, as someone who has walked into a fair few stanky signs and symptoms of yeast infection hospital rooms in my time, I would encourage! 😉

I’m here to chime in to agree wholeheartedly with sarah. My experience with my children at the hospital has been signs and symptoms of yeast infection that the staff expects and accommodates the needs of the signs and symptoms of yeast infection parent staying with the patient. So, my guess is that even if that particular shower is signs and symptoms of yeast infection not for your use, there is a shower somewhere nearby that is for you. I’d mention it to the nicest nurse you have that signs and symptoms of yeast infection you’d love to take a shower and can he or signs and symptoms of yeast infection she direct you as to how that can happen. I promise this isn’t the first time they’ve been asked this.

When my son was staying overnight in the hospital I signs and symptoms of yeast infection was also nursing his baby sister. When it became clear we were not going to be signs and symptoms of yeast infection able to leave the hospital and I’d need to pump they told me I’d have to go to the baby floor and get signs and symptoms of yeast infection set up in one of their pumping rooms. His nurse went down there and snuck me a pump signs and symptoms of yeast infection so that I wouldn’t have to leave him while I took care of signs and symptoms of yeast infection that business. It was sweet. So, my guess is that even if you’re not technically allowed to use that shower, a nice nurse would cover for you.
