Shall I send you a quart jar of some South Carolina Kick Ass to go with it?

In my private room. More like a small hotel room. TV, fridge, safe. Picc line in place. Was supposed to get first dose tonite but now not until morning. That's a drag. I guess I will have to just instigate problems all nite.  By the way, do you know what size hospital johnnys come in?.....one size fits nobody...yukk yukk. The lady who just walked by proved it. Now I need eye drops! It will be a long week. Oh well. I'll post as able. Thanx again for the support. I love you guys.

What exactly were those performance evaluations they put you through to qualify for this, Fox?

Nurse just came in and said that she and one more nurse (why not their friends too?) are going to do a full body audit. They will check ALL of my skin, (that means first skin, second skin, third skin and yes foreskin) for blemishes, wounds and sores.  I better stop scratching if you know what I mean. I think they know I am gonna cause trouble and just want to start it first. Maybe I'll just tie a ribbon on.  This also includes a rectal swabbing. Part of the new regulations to prevent infectious diseases. Sure glad I took a shower..recently.

Hey Fox N Stuff... I bet YOU started it all when you tried to get the nurse to check your blood pressure by wrapping it around your ahem.. member...!  :)

Hope it goes easy for you....

An old man was in hospital. Lying in bed, he leaned over to the pretty young nurse attending to him and whispered in her ear
"Give us a kiss, luv!"

"No!", replied the nurse

"Oh go on!", said the man

"No!", replied the nurse again

"Please!", begged the old man, "Just a quick peck on the cheek?"

"For the last time, no!", said the nurse, "I shouldn't even be wanking you off!"

 

P.S. The British accent is in Wedge's honour, and not because I lifted this joke from Sickipedia.org.

This old guy was sitting in front of the nurses station in a geri chair. He starts leaning over to the right. The nurse sees this and props him up straight with a pillow. A little while later he starts to lean to the left. The nurse promptly props him back up with another pillow. A short time later his family comes in and asks him ,"How are they treating you here?" He tells them everyone is nice but they "Don't let an old guy FART!"

A woman, calling Mount Sinai Hospital, said, "Hello, I want to know if a patient is getting better."

The male voice on the other end of the line said, "What is the patient's name and room number?"

She said, "its Sarah Finkel, in Room 302."

He said, "Oh, yes. Mrs. Finkel is doing very well. In fact, she's had two full meals, her blood pressure is fine, she's going to be taken off the heart monitor in a couple of hours and if she continues this improvement, Dr. Cohen is going to send her home."

The woman said, "Thank God! That's wonderful! Oh! That's fantastic news!"

The man on the phone said, "From your enthusiasm, I take it you must be a close family member or a very close friend!"

She said, "No, I'm Sarah Finkel in 302! Dr. Cohen doesn't tell me a thing!"

2 or 3 times today some  older woman went over and sat next to him. She would slip her hand under the blanket and hold on to his you know what. After lunch as she came back to sit next to him, he sent her away. Then another older woman came by, sat next to him, and slipped her hand under his blanket, also holding his you know what. So the first woman comes back and says to him, "What does she have that I don't have?" He said, "Parkinsons!"

This 3rd woman who was watching what was going on went over and slid her hand under the old guys blanket. I heard her say to him, "Oh my god! you have the biggest penis I have ever put my hand around. He turned toward her and said, "Lady, you are pulling my leg!"

This old lady walks into the Doctor's office and says, "Doctor, please help me. I have a terrible problem with farting. It's not really a social problem, because you can't smell it or hear it, but I must have farted 20 times since talking to you."

The Doctor nods his head and says, "Take this bottle of pills and use them all. When they are all gone in about 2 weeks, come back to see me."

The old lady comes back 2 weeks later and is angry. She says "What was in those pills? I fart just as much. You still can't hear them, but now they smell horrible!" The Doctor again nods his head and says, "Great, that takes care of your sinus problem, now let's work on your hearing."

Behave yourself in the hospital. And no funny jokes about the Catheder Bunny.

I feel like a prisoner. But no big deal. Well it didn't take long to get the shakes and chills. My face looks like I've been out in the sun without sunscreen. The key is to get the demoral as soon as the shakes begin. Then very managable. I look forward to a shower later. My nurses have all been great. I try to keep them laughing. No appetite and not peeing much. A good morning cup of coffee should take care of the other end. It's only weds. and I have several more days to go. Again, who says cancer isn't fun? We do what we need to do. See you later.

It's not easy Fox. If you're like me, your pee will be a brilliant shade of orange and like you said, not much of it. We had to measure intake and output of liquds for the nurses.

I'm thinking about you. Be good! My nurses were great too.

Yes it is a lovely shade of orange. And my face is an amazing bright red! It is gonna peel big time. Don't actors pay for facial exfoliation? Now that I think of it, I'll be paying plenty. Tomorrow when they wake me at 4am,  I'll just lie in bed and watch the open. It will be on all day. I'm glad they are only planning 8 treatments. Don't know how you guys did 14. Amazing!! My hats off to you.

Fox did they bring the beer and pizza yet?  I am still so amazed that this went so fast!  How many treatments did you do thus far and do they come for you every few hours?  Just imagine, people pay for acide peels! Not only might you be NED but you  might look as young as Justin Beiber!  ;)  Rock on you toughy!    (TW, I wonder why Fox left out the part about the pole.)

You can bet that that is on the agenda when I get home. The meal plan here is restaurant style. I have a menu and order what I wish. They do have pizza too. But not too much of an appetite. I'm 4 doses in. The shakes can be amazing. I walk around with my IV pole. Maybe I can suggest that someone can show me how to use it. I've had my evening dose, so the rest of the night will be crappy. See ya's all tomorrow!

Hang in there fox, the updates areb appreciated! You got this,. I heard there is a new policy at your section of the hospital:
All nurses must be checked from head to toe for rashes at the end of each shift. Or did it say hickies!

Gary, you've got me puzzled - are you alluding to the Enter key, also known as the Return key, but making shift with the older terminology of the typewriter era?

 I'm no longer having as much fun. I look like "Tomato Man" I am bright red as if I was out on a boat all day with no sunscreen. Even Mr. wiggles is bright red. I hope it doesn't peel because I can't afford it to get any smaller. 3 hours after infusion I get the chills and shakes. Demorol helps alot. But it takes anothe 6 hours before I feel good. I'm up about 8 pounds which isn't too bad. I'm peeing real good and had my first bout of diarrhea this morning. Vitals and blood work has been amazingly good. Except Something which I forgot what the dr. said. Because she followed that up with "2 doses today and probably only one tomorrow." I won't mind getting back home for a week. Nursing staff has been awesome. Everyone is pretty sharp. I make sure that I tell them. I have been very pleased with all my care at Yale since day one. I am lucky. It's come with a price but I'm lucky. Remember, NO negative thoughts. I need to nap. See ya later. FLY.
