Home again Home again

Feels good to type the update from my recliner, I must say.

I’m finally home again. Doctors released me yesterday afternoon. Around 2pm, I asked the nurse if I slipped her a $50, she could get me home.

So either the nurse needed $50 or the doc could see that it was time to get me out of there.

I’m still taking it easy and can’t go very fast. I still feel like a walking water park – there’s fluid all throughout my bowels & I feel it. But, pain is going down and slowly but surely I’m feeling back to normal. And just so thankful we adverted surgery this time.

So that’s it – the update.

Maybe next time it won’t take a hospital stay for me to hop back on the ole’ blog again.

Everything Starts with “S” Today

Small intestine — still stretched (although not blocked so that is good news.)

Sunday — blood pressure is still low, I’m nauseated and slightly dizzy.

Slow — not a ton is passing through right now, need more bowel sounds to appear!

St. Luke’s East — good hospital at least.

Staying — I’ll be here overnight again.

Silver lining — Sonic cherry limeades are hitting the spot.
