The Stacey Report

May 2: All is Well, Mediport-wise

Posted in Uncategorized by ohthatdeb on May 2, 2006

I just got a call from Michael — Stacey is a bit nauseated from the anaesthesia, but aside from that, everything went well and she’s not in much pain from the surgery itself.

(As for the nausea, it seems to run in the family: the one time I was put really really out, I thought I would never stop throwing up. Our mother was in for minor day surgery at one point and they had to keep her overnight, so prodigious was the puking. I highly recommend deep sedation over general anaesthesia — SO much more pleasant. But I digress.)

Needles, needles everywhere tomorrow, but ha ha ha! She’s got a Mediport!

(I’m the only one who is this excited about it, aren’t I?)

(Sigh.)

    Oh no, I’m really excited about it as well. I see a lot of people in the hospital who have ports and they are really really happy they don’t have to suffer from a needle stick every time they need something.

    It’s a good thing.

    Tired of needles? Sick of medication in bottles? I’m told that there are those who swear by nature’s best remedy, medicinal pot. Which I also understand is in plentiful supply here in Northern California. So if that’s what’s called for, let me know. There must be some growing around here somewhere. Love, Chris
