18 April 2012

I am stuck in hospital for at least another day. [More:]
I demand amusement.

Are you okay, gomi?

Yeah I have gall stones and am waiting to have gall bladder ripped out. In the meantime I'm hooked up to an IV for fluids and antibiotics to calm the stupid thing down.

Well, give me two roach clips, a lipstick camera and an electrified wired and I'd do it for you.
Meanwhile, I'm not sure what you have access to in Oz.

Hospitals usually have awesome net connection.

Aw, sucky!! :P I'm glad they didn't send you home still in pain, though.

So sorry to hear that gomi! I really hope you feel better soon. If I find anything to entertain you, I will be sure to post it.

A nice short read.

Feel better!

Yes, feel better, please.

Sending good vibes your way.

Amusement: you have everything you need at hand. Play with the adjustable bed, bedpans (unused) make great hats, sippy straws work well in nostrils, pour water from your plastic pitcher into your plastic glass then back into the pitcher, switch your position so your head is where your feet were, those socks work great as hand puppets, dive under the sheet as if it's a play fort, take your IV pole for a walk - call it Rover or Spot, see what it takes to make your jello melt by setting up several competin experiments, drink liquids using your thumb on straw/siphon technique, practice paper folding and origami with your napkin, that little box of tissues can be turnd into goastly finger puppets, see how many ways you can stack and stand utensils. Have a crazy good time.

Poor Gomi! hope they cut you open soon. *hugs* GET BETTER SOON!!!

Aw, hope you get the op soon and it goes well.

Don't have much entertainment as it's all been on Mecha/Mefi already. There's a fashion article on the Jantzen Swimsuit and the Cult of the Mermaid?

Glad you're in the right place for what ails you. I've had that surgery and the pain from it is NOTHING compared with gallstone pain. It's no picnic, but some gallbladders are little bastards and NEED TO GO and I don't miss mine one little bit, except when I eat too much pork (YMMV). So, hang in there and good luck!

So glad you're getting good meds. Hope you heal well and quickly.

In the mean time, here's an image you might like:

And I hope you're feeling well soon.

How are you doing today? Just a reminder, use a small pillow to use as counterpressure every time you need to get up. It really helps. I hope you're resting now!

Thanks guys. Actually I got to escape home sans surgery - there were too many drunken morons with life threatening injuries admitted.

So I get to go back on May 8. At least if I don't get another flare up I only have to spend 24 hours in hospital next time - not 4 days.

So glad you're home, even if it means going back next month. How are you feeling?
