He’s Alive A L I V E

I was in surgery for about 90 mins . . .   it went better than expected. They only had to drain fluid around the left lung cavity and didn’t need to scrape. Lung reinflated OK… it had been like a taco down low, so now the  flow is better.

I’m in my recovery room. It’s in ICU due to crowding. Private room!!  Sitting in a chair. Feeling great! MIGHT even be released Friday!!! I’m addicted to the blog and had to get back online.  Thanks to all who enquired.  Those darn “motorsickles.”

Unrelated thought worth quoting: “I don’t want a pickle, just want to ride on my motorsickle. And I don’t want a tickle. ‘Cause I’d rather ride on my motorsickle and I don’t want to die. I just want to ride on my motorcy…cle.” – Arlo Guthrie

    Your accident must have been even worse than I though. Your recovery treatments sound like no picnik at all. Maybe it could be considered torture? Godspeed, and recover well. Nice that you can still blog though.

    Any improved Bionic joints or limbs?

      I gotta a 4 inch titanium plate in my collarbone. Maybe it will deflect bullets! matches the one I have in my left eye socket…a ski accident 12 yrs ago – I dont; ski anymore.

    No live-blogging of the actual surgical procedure itself? I guess they prohibit laptops in the OR…

    Glad to hear it ended up being less invasive than it could have been, and I hope your recovery is going well.

      I’m ready to get up and resume my wacky life. The incision on the left chest where the tiny tv camera went in now feels like a knife twisting s l o w l y. Percaset kills that pain. Me and Michael Jackson. And the catheter up the Johnson was no fun…but would be useful on superbowl Sunday with a keg of beer.
