The 4 weeks ago, my baclofen pump started acting up. I started getting really itchy, my body wouldn't stop shaking, I had a fever, I couldn't sleep and my heart was racing like crazy. So the next day we went to the emergency room at the hospital where I got my pump put in. While at the hospital I still felt hot and my hands were still jittery. The doctors gave me some medicine that helped me a little. My baclofen doctor (Franky) said that I was ready to go home but she looked at the x-Ray and saw I was so constipated and full of poo. It freaked me out!! The pump makes you constipated. When I got home I started to feel worse. Franky thinks that the baclofen pump was too low on dosage so, she increased it too much. The next day after she increased the dosage and gave me medicine to go potty better and medicine for dehydration. I was as floppy as a ragdoll and couldn't stay awake. A couple of days later, Franky decreased the dosage a little bit and finally got the dosage just right. Now I'm better!
Writing Assignment #4
My name is Cameron Broyles, I'm 16 years old and I started my blog 5 years ago when I was 11. I have paraplegic cerebral palsy and cannot communicate in a traditional fashion. I am home-schooled now but I used to go to main stream public school. My love of exploring first began with going on field trips to learn about history. I play power soccer and it's become my sport of choice! I am originally from Texas but now I live in Colorado and LOVE it! I love to travel and explore but the majority of times it is much more difficult than the average person. I want this blog to not only be my mouthpiece for my friends and family but also give some ideas and maybe light a spark for other people with disabilities to get out and explore life! I was first coerced into starting a blog from my mom and dad and I have to admit that sometimes it's not my favorite thing to do but what I love most about having a blog for these past 5 years is that it's a daily reminder of all my blessings from God and how grateful and thankful I am for everything I have in my life.
