Still Profoundly Tired

My accomplishments have been vast today, yet microscopic. It was determined that my food intake should all, from here on out, be in the spirit of "Eat Food, Not too Much, Mostly Plants," and so my nose tube was removed (dramatically, painfully) this morning. Of course, the other reason the nose tube was removed was that it had stopped letting "food" through, and since I'd already received the "go-ahead" for a soft diet, there didn't seem to be any point in using any meat tenderizer or Coke (really truly) to unblock it. So two of my major accomplishments today have been oatmeal with blueberries and chicken noodle soup.

I then took a nap the likes of naps never seen this side of wherever naps are big.

And then PT came and got me out of bed, and placed me in a chair, and I sat in that chair, and then I transferred from that chair to the commode and then back to that chair, which is where I'm sitting now finishing this entry.

And now, having accomplished worlds in a drop of water, I'm going back to bed.

The commode! The commode! Yay for the commode!

And by "Coke (really truly)" I should note that Calin is talking about Coca-Cola, and not the cocaine that was used as part of the intubation procedure.

Calin, I'm thrilled to 'hear' your 'voice'. It is indeed the smallest steps that leave the deepest impressions.

You are so way ahead of me where naps are concerned! Sounds like you're on your way to becoming the ├╝bernapper. I am very envious.

Big hug,

Glad to read your writing again, babe--and I say that with the fullest appreciation of Ian's excellent blogging! I can't wait to see you soon! Love you to infinity.

I'm guessing "commode" going is much better than "bed pan" going? Something about gravity helping there?

I'm not sure if this is a celebration to others, but I would feel a HUGE accomplishment to know that I could use the actual "commode" to take care of my business. YEAH CALIN!!!!
