Day 3

“Today is day 3,” Danielle mutters with a “everyone-should-know-that-it-is-the-worst” tone.

Fortunately she has been sleeping most of the afternoon.  (Now, if you have any deductive reasoning skills you know where I’m going…)

Last night was rough.  No food mixed with lots of pills, drugs, oxygen and a lack of IV for three hours lead to being up most of the night with a physically upset stomach. Anyone ever had surgery on their abdomen??? Your stomach and your abdomen are pretty much the same thing.  Upset stomach = Upset abdomen…that was just operated on and is trying to heal = no good.

Oh, and did I mention the mishap of trying to move the IV and the nurses not being able to find a vein?  This is what lead to going three hours without an IV.  A nurse tries to stick it.  Then a different nurse tries.  Then they call someone.  And that someone doesn’t show up for three hours.

That’s Day 3.

And that’s my rant. (Thank you for letting me get it off my chest).

Mike Here

Danielle is progressing well. Today she has already had clear liquids, put on real clothes and been down the hallway. Here are some pictures from the last 24 hours.

In Recovery

She just got out. In recovery. Everything went as planned. No visible issues in removed organs. PTL.

Update from Research

Hey all. Mike here. Honored to be a guest author on the Semicolon blog. Though I am acting more as a news reporter than a creative writer. Danielle has been in surgery for about an hour now. Umm, yeah, that’s it. So expect another update post op.

Be back shortly.
