Joppette Posted January 5, 2012 Share Posted January 5, 2012 I missed such a long, wonderful and needy air yesterday I was a bit preoccupied. I'm typing this from my iPhone so pardon any pesky "auto corrects". I am residing at a two bed hospital room as we speak. It's about 1;30am and can't sleep so thought I'd pop in while I wait for the morphine to kick in. Yesterday ranks right up there as one of the most excruciating pain days of my 57 year old life. Went in for the needle biopsy. Good news: they were able to get a tissue sample. Bad news: they poked a hole in my lung and it collapsed. OMG is all I can say about the pain. They began the battle with Fentanyl. That wore off quickly so 2mg of morphine. To no avail. Another 2mf of morphine plus zofran and a very strong anti-inflammatory and I wasn't climbing the walls. It took 7 hours of experimenting and they got a pain cocktail that worked. I have heart monitor on, oxygen, leg compression tubes and I V. Hard to believe I walked in under my own steam and now can't walk to the b- room without help. The lady in the other bed has bone cancer with mets to her kidneys. She is dying based on the conversations I've heard her have with her family. Sad. Anyway I'll be here a couple more days. We'll get results by then too. ( we hope). As for Angry birds? I LOVE that game. It's addicting and fun. I'll respond later to all the posts. Hard to do that when reading from the phone. R brought my lap top in but was too ill yesterday to get on it. Hoping to get sleep now and have a better day today. MI judy. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
