So this is how liberty dies ... with thunderous applause.


Catheter is in

Well, it is done. I got the groshong (not sure on the spelling) catheter put in today. It actually feels way better than the IV in my arm did, that is for sure. I have a giant bruise left on my arm from that. I've thrown up three times since coming home as a result of the anesthesia. So, that is miserable. I'm really weak, but ok. I had to shower, too, because evidently the vein they put the catheter into can be gusher when they get it good. My hair was full of blood. That was nasty, to say the least. The catheter went in a little opening in my shoulder and actually comes out of my boob. Sort of weird.

I'll take some pictures to show. But, for now, I'm done with it and home. I'll try to blog more about it this week. I'm going to take my meds and go to bed. I'm wiped out. I just pray that I'll stop puking.

    The final puke did it for me and within about 30 minutes I was feeling bright eyed and alert again. It was remarkable. Grateful, I was. ;)
