|GROSS GROSS GROSS!!!!!!|
This is the most awful thing I ever ingested. ever. and I of course am experiencing common and non-common side-effects. yayee.
One thing that sucks about being a nurse? Recognizing symptoms and the consequences of those symptoms quickly in myself- and jumping to worst case scenarios that must be ruled out QUICKLY!!
Thankfully, my CT scan showed no tumors anywhere in my pelvic regions, specifically my renal system. I am the proud momma of kidney stones. woohoo.
After talking to my parents, I discovered I have relatives on my paternal side that deal with this too. So glad I get to share the love. feh.
So I am still dealing w/ side-effects from my oral contrast...and they are NOT pretty side-effects. I am hoping they will end soon since I am past 24 hrs from ingestion.
Meanwhile, Zbug is very clingy of momma, and Bub has a case of the giggles, as reported by Grandma.
SO-- Happy 4th of July! Drink lots of water and be good to your kidneys!
(ps- happy anniversary to my parents! love you!)
