Found my blog again. Woot Woot.
I work overnight graveyard shift and have been all over the interwebs lately. Just not here. So I thought I say howdy again and remind everyone that:
-I was surgerized May 20 at OKC VA and they took out all but 20 cm of large intestine. Had to be an ‘open’ procedure so I had a massive abdominal wound with 23 staples.
-It hurt like a bitch for quite a while, but I really don’t like to use enough pain meds to stop all the pain.
-I believe they may have almost lost me once or twice between lights out and recovery. Just a feeling. Nothing specific.
-Speaking of pain medication. IV Fentenyl works great. The soreness went away and I could sleep. Standing and walking were awkward, difficult, and painful. Respiratory therapy may have saved me a few more times when I’d vapor lock on the way to the cat box.
-I also added a new long gun to my collection ! And have a new pistol in layaway.
Well that’s enough for now. Peace out !
Boy, is this satisfying or what? I had my abdominals cats scanned today at the VA in OKC. They’re checking for other bugaboos in the vicinity of my naught ascending colon. Apparently I am a polyp farmer and one or two of those bad boys have dysmorphical cells, pre-cancerous appearances, and maby active carcinomas. So the surgeon will chat me up about a colectomy soon. OPlan to wait until after the move mid-NMay. Daughter and son-in-law have bought a nice Edmond house and have agreed to keep me around for a while longer.
Not much has changed here in Oklahoma. Weather always changes so technically no change. The chance for some warm days when I’m off work and not sleeping has me stoked a little to try out my Christmas present now. The metal detector has been sittin’ in the ’94 Suburban for three months now. Look out treasure, here I come !
Welcome and greetings. Have not a clue what’s going to be on this page except stuff I thought I might save after posting or sharing it on Facehole, G+, or Yahoo. I’ll do my best not to forget the transition from just deleting pictures to blogging and then deleting. Anyway, howdy and see ya later.
