They removed the last of the 'things' in me just about 20 mins ago. This included the IV in my right hand, the 2' catheter that was pumping some sort of pain killer into my insides, and a drain about 4" long in an open wound on my left hand side. That was joyous... NOT! Nurse did a good job, but nothing like the feeling of a slimy tube being pulled from your body to make the stomach (what is left of it) queasy.
I'm now on 4 oz of liquid an hour and I am having a hard time putting it all down. Sipping is allowed and encouraged so I just taking it easy.
Since the Other Half isn't off until later, I'm just going to chill here at Club Immanuel. They have more cable channels then I have at home! :)
sip, sip, sip
