Great, now my left lung has 2 liters of fluid in it making it very difficult to breathe when I do anything! UGH, I swear I get closer and closer to being Frankenstein with each surgery. They are going to do it on Monday. I said I will just wait b/c I am NOT staying in the hospital over the weekend if I don't have to! I am also insisting on a private room since I will be there for upto 5 days. Hopefully this will drain quick like it did when I had the fluid around my heart and I will be out in 3 days. But this time they are doing 2 tubes and going through the ribs, OUCH! Then they are going to spray talcum powder in the lung that way it shouldn't happen again.
I didn't know I was enrolled into the surgery of the month club. I don't want to know what Feb. will bring! The other lung, maybe. It has like 300-500cc's from what the surgeon told me. Then I told him he had better do my surgery ON TIME! Last time they had me go in overnight so they could squezee me in early. Later that day, they informed me it wouldn't be until 5:45pm. Well, when 6:45 rolled around they came in and said * Ok we can take you down now.* As soon as I got there he comes in to tell me that some woman came in and she is an emergency case and he needs to do hers first. If I hadn't be starved since midnight the night before and had some sleep I probably wouldn't have bitten his head off like I did. I said * I thought I was an emergency when they had me come straight to the hospital to be admitted for an early surgery?* UGH, I was just bitter b/c I was SO hungry all day and now they are telling me it's not going to happen until after 10:30pm!!! My family had been there all day as well! UGH.....he just kind od smiled and said *well, you are ON the schedule for a specific time* which is 4:30pm. As long as he is on time, I will be fine. But I dare them to say they are pushing it back! I may hurt someone! So I will be usueless for awhile. I can't do anything now b/c I get to winded and cough alot. So I will be sitting on my butt doing a whole lotta nothing until Monday. This time I will be prepared and I am taking my cd player and a huge word find. I miss my TV when I am there. They just have the cable. And you know there is no sleeping from 10pm -8am! GGGRRR....they make me so mad. Atleast my port makes things easier.
I hope all is well with you ladies! L&H,
