The Rumor Was True - Sundance Was Full of $hit After All. (Updated below)
Well, it's yesterday's news now...but I did clear that major impaction. I never thought I could it was so bad...half a colon full of rock stool.
It took 5 jugs of GoLytely...many chemical and warm water enemas, a couple of mag citrates...manual de-impaction to finally get it....it was a mess and one of the hardest things I've ever done.
The first scope attempt failed and I was really worried I would fail miserably. But the 2nd one revealed all clear...not even a polyp...so I'm good for 3 years now.
My 14 day staycation was eventful...
Originally, I was not a fall risk...but that changed.
What happened was I got up quickly and my hand slipped and wham I hit the ground hard like a ton of bricks. There was blood all over me. By rule they switched me to yellow gown and a fall risk...though I found a way around it, LOL
What happened was I had a garden hose up my backside and I had to go but the nurse did not pull out quick enough.
Next day I talked my way off the fall risk chart by charming a few nurses and showing them I was ok. They said I was the first to do that one:).
No surprise, right?
And my wife had bought me milks from the cafe...we had the nurses print labels and we put them in appointed fridge as instructed. Long story short...they were stolen...so mad and disappointed they were...they were mine and it cost us $10 so it was not right at all.
Other highlights...they scheduled us a room and then we waited for three hours upon check/in...nobody checked on us during all that time.
I had some good crews and other shifts turned out less than stellar...new place recently opened so it may take some time.
And I still have not healed completely a month later from that fall...many scabs still.
Wish I could write more but hurting real bad...did the best I could.
I worry about another impaction but worries fill my days and nights...I hope that dissipates. I just don't feel human anymore...just some kind of freak.
Thanks for listening and nice to see you again.
Oh and the endoscopy showed some irritation otherwise it was clear no cancer or obstructions so that was good.
The consensus is that tha pain pills have created all my problems.
I'm trying so desperately to wean down or get off those meds.
At this rate if I don't turn it around soon you won't have to worry about me.
Let us hope for some good news.
Goodnight and love you!
