Staying one more night

My sodium level was 119 on Friday, 121 yesterday, and 123 today. Normal is 135. The doctor gave me the choice to come home, but for some reason, I wasn't sure. I sorta feel like staying where people can take care of me.

I don't think I can monitor my fluid intake at home like they do here. I am limited to two liters of fluids each day. I know I drink more than that when home. I also feel like I csn get stronger here.

The doctor gave me the choice to stay or go. I guess since I am waffling, I will stay another night.

It will also give another day for the antibiotics to work on the UTI. I had more urinary bleeding last night so I would like that to be better before I go home.

I guess it feels right. So while the sodium is going up, it isn't up enough. I'll stay another night.

Also, if truth be told, I feel like I can leave my worries behind.

I'm sorry you've been feeling so bad. Sounds like a good idea to stay another night in the hospital. I hope you're feeling better soon.
