I was still being offered food today, even 10 minutes before the procedure. I didn't end up getting it done with general anesthesia, but instead with sedation and some locals. The techs putting in the tube were nothing but awesome. They read the info I gave them and were more than willing to do what made me comfortable. I could still feel a lot of it, as the locals don't really work on this girl, no matter what. I will say that having your stomach and jejunum poked and cut through feels really gross.
I'm still not allowed to have any of my supplements, so my body hates me today. I'm getting some pretty insane muscle cramps and joint pain. One of my nurses, thought it was because I had been laying down all day. Little did she know, I had been upright for most of the day, and the cramps are caused by lack of calcium and magnesium.
I'm hoping to be discharged tomorrow as I've managed to eat 3 slices of pizza (no gross hospital food for me) and have been up & about. If they don't let me go, this girl will no longer be sugar and spice, but instead will not be nice.
Without further adieu, I will introduce Jerome...
My stomach is still bloated and filled with air. It hurts to fart and burp. The tape from my IV's and Jerome are so itchy and driving me a bit insane. I'm anticipating some pretty crazy rashes and blisters. Oh, EDS you make life so interesting.
