More Adventures in Recuperation, #3

It’s Saturday, and things are changing.

The NG tube came out on Friday. I went off the patient-controlled analgesia on Friday, and onto oral pain medication. I’ve been on a “full liquid diet” so far.

This morning, the rectal tube was removed, so now I’ll be traipsing off to the restroom quite a bit.

The doctor who looked at me this morning thinks that the rash i’ve got is due to something besides poison oak. He’s going to try to locate a dermatalogist to have a look, but they are rarely here on the weekends.

I’ll probably go home Sunday or Monday if things continue to go OK.
