I posted earlier (from a phone) about being in the hospital. Kristy has brought my laptop, and that’s perfect as I’m having trouble sleeping.
I’m expecting to be discharged sometime tomorrow. A correction: the obstruction is in my small intestine, not the bowel. The pain is gone, so I believe the obstruction is clear. Nothing has passed yet, but it’s probably just a matter of time.
I’ve been allowed nothing to eat or drink today. I really miss coffee! I have an IV stuck in my arm providing me with fluid and nutrition. I hesitate to call it food. The IV has also made it quick and easy to administer a painkiller which was necessary earlier. I’m no longer on a painkiller, but I’m in no pain other than a headache from lack of caffeine.
I think Sunergos will be my first stop after leaving here.
It’s been weird dragging around an IV pole with pump anytime I get out of bed. It’s not very convenient.
Thanks to those who sent well-wishes in comments on my previous post, and via text message.
I will be on the bike tomorrow, but I won’t be out in time for the Knobby Hills Ice Cream Ride or whatever it’s called. I’m not sure I should ride it until I had the chance to refuel normally anyway.
