The Queen of Sheeeba [userpic]
The story so far.

When they moved Ebony from the ER to CPU (as of 8 last night they hadn't found her a bed) a different doctor reviewed her CAT scan and other test, called in a GI doctor and they both concluded that, even though her appendix was inflamed, this was secondary and caused by food poisoning. The pain she was in was caused by spasms of her GI tract and so they took her off of surgery stand-by.

But they wouldn't let us bring her home nor would they let her eat the yogurt. They wanted to continue the IV of liquids and antibiotics as she was still very dehydrated and extremely diarrheal. They also found minute amounts of blood in her poop and her heart rate was accelerated.

ETA: Can you suffer from empathic food poisoning? Because I now have a slight fever, a headache and explosive (and I mean EXPLOSIVE!!!) diarrhea.


good grief!

I have rarely mentioned this for fear of being labeled a complete loon, but I swear sometimes I suffer the same ailments as Kirk, and I don't mean the stuff that is contagious.
