Today, they tested me swallowing with ice chips & diet sprite. I was successful.
I've just finished my first supper tray within 2 months & 9 days. There was chopped steak, chopped green beans, mashed ice potatos w/gravy, purple grapes, & a diet sprite.
The pick line was put in today for 911 purposes only. I gave the nurses my #1 rule. [If none of you can find a vein with 3 trys witout blowing it, or missing it with 3 trys, & I qoute: with my history of tight veins, send down to get my pickline. I'd rather have it than a IV. IVs beep to much, 90% of the time in the way. Or the arm gets stiff by trying to let the meds run in.
The Doc. that's higher than the SlamDoctor annouced he thinks he'll kicking out of the door & sending back to my home at the nursing home, cause I'M fully recovered with ill.
But my arms swolen so nig, I have aching joints. We've been popping, stretching, turning, pulling, & exercising them. My shoulders & neck where my spinal was pulled a loose, forever needs popping.
Guess if I go through a security scanner, I'd probily set it off with these titanium plates. That'll be fun & funny.
