And Just Like That…

I’m back in the hospital (please excuse cheap use of SATC reboot!).

Somewhere in the previous post I wrote about weird new pains I’ve had for the last month, and how I’m seeing my oncologist next week. Well, I found the source of something, and it’s another bowel obstruction.

This one started like the first one, and the subsequent false alarms: feeling nauseated, intestinal pains, then throwing up. So I came to the hospital at noon, through triage by 1, exam by doc by 2:30ish, IV saline, Zofran and morphine, CT scan with contrast by 6, admitted around 8, NG tube war at 9, in room by 1 a.m.

It felt very speedy this time.

So here I am, IVs running, NG tube draining God awful crap out of my stomach, five or six shots per day, and x-rays to check tube positioning. Wearing my four-braces-per-leg nighttime wear for the lymphedema. Waiting for my intestines to completely relax and fall back and let the good times roll! To achieve that, no food, no drink, no ice. No visitors. I have laptop, phone and hospital TV with almost every channel mis-identified.

This took seven days the first time. I’m banking on getting out in time to see my onc at 10:15 Monday morning. That would be five days. Please cross your fingers!!
