port is out thank God
Sunday, December 30, 2012
finally checked into the hospital sat eve and now this morning i had the blessings of a surgical assistant remove my port. firt thing this morning ... they had me there over night to observe me to be sure i was ok enough for the surgery. I didnt get completely put under. They numbed the area with a needle several time .... ( which hurt like hell ) and then once the numbing medicne kicked in they proceeded to cut me open to remove the port. It took them longer than usual because my port had turned upward instead of laying flat. Then, once she removed the port, she had to take a needle and thread and sew the surgical area back up.. And yes she did a lot of stitches.
Later i made a mistake of fixing a huge pot of chicken and dumplins and my boyfriend came over and saw it and got mad at me. he point out how the can of biscuits alone had so much sodium in it. he once again blew off some steam at me.... saying that i should know better and that i was slowly killing myself. but once hes vented for about an hr, hes normal again a totally different person .... after this incident im no longer having white foods and only eating chicken pork and fish for meats. once i heal from my surgery ill start walking again ...
