Hi Jo, you've lost your short term memory. This paper will update you on your condition, as your
memory right now only lasts about 5 minutes, so you're continually asking the same questions.
Where am 1?: You're in the ICU at
— yes, this is the hospital you like.
What is today/How long have I been sick?: Today is Tuesday May 31 , 2011. You've been in the
hospital since Monday May 30, 2011 at Ipm. You started feeling weird Sunday night after getting
back from the campgrounds with your brother and father. You were also dehydrated during the
weekend, and drinking pedialyte. You were vomiting, had a terrible headache, and were not able
to be aroused (lolz whats new?) when you fell asleep. You also were running a fever.
What's wrong with me?: You have an infection. Your biggest symptom right now is short term
memory loss and confusion. You're able to hold a conversation, but you go through the same
series of questions again and again. It's like 50 First Dates. They're not sure right now, but
they've ruled a lot of stuff out. It could be meningitis, which can cause memory loss and some of
the earlier symptoms you had (fatigue, nausea, vomiting, headache). As of my typing this up
(4:30pm), they did not have a diagnosis (or as
would say, diagnoses.) They did a CAT
scan, and you didn't stroke out of have a seizure, and you haven't bumped your head so they're
confident that this is temporary.
MENIGITIS!? How do I get an infection that rots my brain?!: It's airborne, and it's an
inflammation of the spinal cord or something. It's a serious condition but eyeryone seems
confident that you'll be fine when the antibiotics kick in.
Are the kids okay?; The kids are perfectly fine and they aren't showing signs of any illness or
•s on formula and is doing surprisingly well on it and you' pumping and
dumping just in case.
is flying outtomorrow and your
poes my family know?: Yes, your family knows.
grandmother might be coming with her. NO, your grandma didn't speak in tongues, but she did
and all of your family
sob. You called her a dipshit. You've spoken to your mother twice
has called to introduce themselves tome 101. They're being updated continually.
I haye to pee.: You have a catheter, so feel free.
Pid we get the house?: Yes, and you've known that since Friday. You get the keys on the 22nd of
June. This is the 31 st of May. Yes, you for sure got it.
Why dogs this lady familiar?: That's your nurse.
ora hos italroo l: Yeah bro, I don't know what your
floors are so f
fascination with the floors is, but you've said that like 800 times.
