Be honest, does this IV make me look fat?

So I've been feeling pretty crappy the past three weeks. It started feeling like it was my stent closing off again, but then quickly led to full on flu like symptoms. This last weekend I started feeling a lot worse, so I had my CF doctor fit me into clinic yesterday. My CF docs don't think the stent is closed off, but think I'm dealing with another lung infection with my old cf bugs. My body trying to get ready to fight off this infection is what my doctors think is making me feel so sick since I'm not able to build the white blood count needed to fight the infection on my own. So, they started me on IV Meropenem and oral Cipro for three weeks. I haven't been on home IV's for about 3 1/2 years, so it took me a little while to figure out the pump again lol. I'm only stuck to the IV pole for thirty minutes every eight hours, so I suppose that's a good thing.
Besides the sick thing, I'm doing pretty good. I'm in my final week of my second class with University of Phoenix (online campus) and am very excited about how well I'm doing with it so far. I'm getting ready to make a big change in my life, but will go more into that at a later time. I need to go lay down and get some sleep. It seems like sleep is the only thing I've found that makes me feel even a little bit better right now. Oh yeah, I got my flu shot yesterday while in clinic. My arm hurts, but it hasn't made me feel a whole lot worse than I already do, so that's a good surprise!
