 I also had the 3 IVs but have no idea what was in them, and a heart monitor.
The worst part is I was still very thirsty but I wasn't allowed to take
anything, including fluids, by mouth. I wasn't allowed to eat anything at all
for 4 days but I had no appetite anyway. I was in there for a week (Monday to
Monday) and all of the information I got was a blur.

Type 1 dx 4/1987
