I’m the cover of The Great Gatsby.
So I thought I was going into liver failure on Monday, then my kidneys got crazy inflamed late Monday night -> Tuesday night, and I got super sick, like that part in Bridesmaids style. So by Tuesday morning I was super dehydrated, my kidneys were externally visible in my lower back, I had a fever of 101.5, and my sugar was up by 300 even though I hadn’t eaten in 12 hours. So my doctor was like “Um so DKA or?” and so I went back in, and got IV’d, and essentially it was some kind of 24 hour bug that almost blew up my kidneys and nearly forced me into DKA. So cool.
Well that escalated quickly.
