Hospital update eleventy

I just read what I wrote yesterday. I’m glad I played it down. I’m surprised I don’t have PTSD! Seriously. I did wake up in horror a couple of times during the night, reliving the experience. But as I said to my nurse, it’s another weird medical story I can tell, albeit at my own expense.

Today I got an apology from the team that did the tube fitting yesterday, which is good. I’m hoping no one gets their arse too badly kicked though. It was a mistake, just a really fucking painful one for me.

My arm is back to normal and I’m feeling a little more decent today.

The upshot of yesterday was things seem to be moving. I’m going home tomorrow after a different kinda CT scan. Will be back Wednesday to have my stent replaced coz they can only stay in for 6 weeks. Then the following Monday they’re having a rather large meeting about me to put their heads together and work out what’s best/where to.

The most likely outcome looks like another resection, but we won’t know until each little bit happens.

I have my own room tonight which is lovely. I think I’ve earned it πŸ˜‰

With any luck my next entry will be from the comfort of my own home!
