When that happened to me,  after months of aggrevation, the wound care nurses pulled out bits of foam that someone pushed in too deep. 

(Not the whole story. )

Take care and heal. You're on the other side. The after side.

Look forward!  Think how you can help someone else.

You all are so strong-- I never want to go through this !! So happy that you have us here for help and understandings, and support.. Don't even think of "work" right now--  You will get back there when you get there.. No need to stress out with that right now-- 

John, what you wrote was from your heart..  And perfect.. No readings between the lines what comes within the heart.. I thank you--M.

No interest in going back to work yet. Still uncomfortable getting up, could not chase my olds around like this.

This draining is a normal thing, something that happens sometimes. As long as it is not thick and creamy/ smelly/ off colored accompanied by inflammation and redness it's alright. If any of those were present it would be time to contact the Dr.

Your a smart cookie, and your on top of everything..  And you know your Oscar and his habits of approvals and not so-- At least u have that behind you (no pun intended) But speaking of?? How is that healing?  Feeling better today?  

This has been a long haul for me and us, as we all waited for months of this operation and now, hoping that you heal properly, and back on your fish flops soon!!! Send us some pictures of yourself and James.. Ya, we will take at peak of Oscar as he heals too- Might just help some else out down the road. 

What a team we are together huh??????????  We know where it is at.. and why.. Your blessed lately Felicity.. you know that don't you?  M.

She's not going any place.. Not her first Barb-O-Q....... I suggested she make some visits before she makes up her mind on that.. Get out of the house, and sit with them and talk a bit.. Have a lunch with them--She is good at her job, and this will be fun for her (I think) It is a fast pacing job-I used to help people in her job.. Trust me it can be a race..--never a dull moment.. But I loved it.. Got to be fast on your feet!! But they are so sweet!!!!! :-)

Between her and Barbara, these past few months... my goodness!!! Where is Barb anyways????

Barb is here. Just hanging out in the back and watching all the fireworks going on here. It's fun evening and I think it's going to get better as the night goes on. Still waiting for a grand slam myself guess I'll have to go hijack the car and head out there and bring a couple back

Been hanging out with the Boston Babes, watching TV and walking during commercials. I stand straighter every day, less need to support the belly.

James is taking some extra days off before and after Christmas. He will be able to be with me during my first days at home. His current employment ends at the end of the month. Thankfully we have some cushion but he usually has a new job before the current one ends.

Tomorrow I see Dr B and we figure out when I go back without restrictions. Might see about a week of half days so I can build up a little. Tonight I shall wash my hair and get it to dry nicer. I let it do what it wanted after washing it last. Wild wild hair going on.

Saw Dr B today. The areas where I am leaked from had open areas that were skinned over and filled w fluid. He opened them up using a qtip... So not fun. He inserted a little wick like dressing to encourage drainage, both are in the area of one inch of gauze ribbon tape. I'm to change that 2 times a day.

Over all I am healing well. He trimmed some of my stitches on my backside. I see him again in 2 more weeks. We'll discuss back to work then.

Stopped for fine tipped tweezers and paper tape so I can do the changes easily and bandage them over. Called work to let them know I'm not back yet then snored on the sofa for a bit. 

Made a cream cheese ball and ate a good chunk of that with crackers. 1 brick cream cheese, chop/mince pastrami, finely sliced green onions all mixed together. I like to use some Beau Monde seasoning salt or Tony Chachers Cajun Seasoning at home. Apply to Club Crackers and chow down.

Oh Felicity I didn't think anyone had had tunneling before but me. I know what you mean that hurt like hell when he grabbed out of a Q-tip and started digging around in there. I am was laying on the bed while he was doing that I took my hands I reached up gripped him about the throat and asked him to tell me when he couldn't talk or breathe at which point he stopped ha I was thinking very seriously if changing the name of this from Felicity is felicity's hospital room to Barbara hospital room I'm back in the hospital again as I think I told you this is the 4th time and several months now this time with a case of a diabetic ketoacidosis I bet it is really nice because your breath is all fruity and nice that's how they know it's ketoacidosis. Anyway I was just thinking that you are the one who deserves all the Kudos as I sit here and stare at my little red suitcase on rollers that has all my ostomy supplies in it. Very glad that I have it because they've got those damn Hollister ones here again and I can't stand those things I hate the clip at the bottom of it when I hate the Tupperware thing even worse cuz I can't clip it shut cuz I've got because I've got rheumatoid arthritis. By the way those are too cute pups you've got I think they were yours is I was flashing past. Hope you're doing better. They told me that I may get to go home tomorrow but I may have to also go down to rehab for a while. How to take a little picture here out my Hospital window so you can see what Spokane Washington looks like or as much of it as I get to see you anymore
