It's like getting blood from a turnip..

Thanks to the lovely Celine, I've got a new pal for Mush!

So I've hit a bit of a rough patch. I wasn't able to keep any food or water down - so my surgeon told Leigh we should go to the ER (no rooms were available for my surgeon to admit me directly)
dehydration can be a real problem. We arrived last Monday at 2:30 PM , I finally was in my hospital room Tuesday 2:30 AM. For entertainment value, a patient was brought into the ER with a 3 police escort (he kept declaring I'm not a hardened criminal ) .....
Since hospital staff have destroyed every vein in my body (ok, I exaggerate a bit) they put the IV in my neck - the only thing more fun than that was the NG tube that was to follow

The Catscan showed that dilated bowel loops (partial bowel obstruction) was the reason for my troubles - Thankfully, I stopped throwing up poo
& didn't require surgery. I felt like such an old lady when I excitedly exclaimed to my surgeon "I had a bowel movement"!

Of course, I brought my faithful musher with me to see me through this hospital stay. While one of the transport staff was wheeling me to the Xray area- 5 or 6 Hospital Employees recognized me & said hello. The transport fellow said "Wow, you've got a fanclub" Lol It's all due to the Musher, but it made me laugh.

I was sent home on the 24th - oddly enough it was July 24, 2006 when this whole thing started. So for now, I have to grin & bear it - the thought of another surgery makes me nervous...

You really can never get too many panda pictures, can ya?
