I went in to the ER on Thursday evening with severe abdominal pain. After a CT scan spotted a small intestinal blockage, they admitted me.
Thursday night and early Friday were a blur of wonderful painkillers. Late Friday and today were boring. I felt normal again. Everything was "working" again and I wanted to go home. I was told yesterday that I could go home today if "everything came out right", which it did. Then they wanted me to wait until tomorrow to leave.
The doctors only come one a day.... in the morning, and he'd already left. I asked a nurse to contact the doctor and find out why I was to be kept another day. After two hours I assumed they were stalling and I began planning on what to write here. I used the "Posts that start with 'So,'" as a starting point.
I had just started browsing Foo and planning my tirade when the nurse came in and told me they were discharging me. It was almost a letdown.
I'm on a liquid diet today, and I'm supposed to ease my digestive system back to solid food over a couple of days. Oh, and liquid diets don't include beer.
I'm home. I had juice & soup for dinner. The dogs are glad to have me back. The cat is glad to be fed again. I get to sleep in my own bed.
