Zach's in the Hospital
« on: March 28, 2014, 05:32:25 PM »
Hey, all.

I just got off the phone with Zach a few minutes ago.  He is currently in the hospital trying to rebound from a multitude of rather serious ailments. 

The list is as follows:

CD of 9, Tuberculosis, Pneumonia, Lesion on Lung (possibly cancerous), and possible MAC.

He's getting poked and prodded and all that stuff while they try to get him in a good enough shape to go on HIV meds.  He sounded better than I expected under the circumstances, but I'm not fool enough to think that this is no big deal.

So send out your thoughts, prayers, well wishes and general good mojo because he needs it.

I'm going to try to get down to see him within the next couple of days.

Yes, and he told me the TB is definite, as is the PCP.  They are still checking on the MAC as well as trying to see if the dark lung lesion is cancerous.

Zach,

Sorry to hear you are so ill.  It is reassuring you have posted and with humor. 

I feel bad I haven't followed your situation more closely.  I remember your first post about being diagnosed with a very low CD4 and sick in the hospital, but I remember you were put on meds.  I've followed your posts about depression.  It seems apparent there was some issue with meds that caused you to go off meds, and I missed that.  I apologize for not following a fellow member's situation better. 

Wishing you all the best for a speedy recovery.  Looking forward to hearing you're out of the hospital and feeling much better.

Ted

Nor has Zach lost his sense of humour!

I hope you're feeling that healing energy I'm sending - I think I shorted out my lights last night but they're ok today.

Hang in there Zach, I hope you're feeling better soon. Moaning about porn being blocked is a good sign that you're far from dead! ;D

I'm glad you have your tablet with you so we can cheer you on and know you're feeling the love. Even if you can't watch any porn. Maybe Tim can bring you some mags. ;)

Sorry about the porn being blocked.  If I had any porn pics I would ask for your cell phone number so I could text them to you.  Maybe as Ann said Tim could bring you some magazines.

I'm definitely going to be checking this thread on a regular.  Please continue fighting!

Zach,

Sorry to hear you're dealing with all this.

I don't know your preference for porn, but you could try accessing it using a proxy site. To use one of the sites, go to its page, then while on that site, access your favorite porn site. To the site blocker, it looks like your tablet is looking at the proxy site, not the porn site. The link I listed is just for an example. I don't know if any of these would work for you.

If the hospital's IT team has blocked access to the proxy sites, then you're going to have to try other tricks. Some porn sites have a "HTTPS" version of their site that is accessible due to it tricking the net nanny into thinking it is a secured link.

Reddit has gonewild sections that have nudity, but no sex. Reddit is usually unblocked because it contains mostly non-porn-related links.

If nothing else, you may just have to have someone send you pics via email.  ;D
Reality is frequently inaccurate.

That IS decent news. BTW - one of the great things about the new med Tivicay is that unlike a lot of other hiv meds, it plays well with TB meds.

Every cloud has a silver lining - I hope yours is gold-plated too.

Yes it is criminal that you have to get to be this to way before you can start treatment. It's a loss in every sense.

Zach, I did not know you very well but I was sad to hear about your news.
You have an outstanding attitude which I think will help you for a faster recovery at the end.

I hope you get well soon.

Sleep as much as you can, let yourself be looked after and know that everyone here is thinking about you.

Bach given all that ,s going on I can see why the news about the TB has not hit home, but it is good news, with some forms off TB you can be looking at 3 to 6 months in the isolation room. So I am celebrating for you .

Totally agree with the boredom bit , any nice things on offer? My favourite was the visiting volunteer reflexologists and the cancer charity provided masseurs , I don ,t know what,s on offer for you or even where you are. But anyway you can at least ask.

Good luck with all the stuff next week, there are lots off us who will be regularly checking the board for your news , if you enjoy Nordic Crime I will post some books to you.

All the best

I'm so bored.

Of course this is mainly for those sitting around with the patient but see no reason why you could not get into some type of harmless shenanigans.... or at least read about them.  Hang in!

Well they are cracking on , one and a half hours MRI is an ordeal for anyone I hope that you has a process free day soon . Now the TB result has come back is there any lessening in the restrictions on you ? You must be knacker after such a day reading it is enough to make me feel knackered.

And by know I guess you are feeling like a Pin cushion. Are the nurse,s fun ? humane? should look for retraining ? be shot at dawn?

And if the food is gruel can you ring out for deliveries , I know I would off starved had it not been for Sushi deliveries twas the only thing I could face scared the Doctors to death eating raw fish , well had to find fun where I could.
Over and out Zach.

Theyer, I have no idea what some of what you say means, knackered is tired? Yeah, mri sucked. Halo cage with bolts keeping my head from moving, and a mask. A lot like torture. I can leave my room, even leave the floor but still have to wear the mask outside my room. Best they'll say about the TB, nonagressive. Still giving sputum samples, think they'll liked one I just coughed up. They still may knock me out tomorrow, go down my throat and take a p piece of lung. They aren't playing, I get how serious tb is

They go through your nose for the bronchoscopy, not sure if that makes it better or worse though ...  :-\ 

Glad to see you're able to be up and about.
