Dehydrated, I am told

Dehydrated?
I would describe the way I am feeling as having been run over by a ‘steam roller.’

Perhaps a steam roller is before your time, I remember them.

Well, this is how one looked, approximately.

Why am I talking about being dehydrated

Because I have just had a phone call from the oxygen monitoring service and dehydration is what they figure I am suffering from.

(I have to log in online every day and enter a bunch of stats. Things like my oxygen saturation, flow rate of oxygen, and a bunch of questions to be answered.)

Cause: Fluid restriction, several days of 100 f plus days, lots of appointments.

Solution: Told to drink a bit more water, go watch a movie, or at least not do very much.

(When I was in hospital recently the consultant doctor said they wanted me to be dehydrated so that I would lose the fluid.)

Just looked at what’s on TV – not worth  wasting the electricity. Maybe read a book.

Since I do not have the energy to argue I will find somewhere to sit and drink some water. Preferably in front of a fan.

Hopefully, I will re-hydrate instead of dehydrate.

I have to smile,

Susan
