Ain't goin' down til' the sun comes up!
Hi everyone! My name is Jay, and mom and dad decided to give me a chance to write. So, I thought I'd describe my morning for you so you can have an idea of what a zoo it is around here.
6:00 - Mom & Dad wake me up for breakfast. I personally thought it was too early to nurse, but they gave me a bottle and that was yummy.
6:15 - Nurse came in to take my blood pressure - AGAIN. I wouldn't whine so much if that cuff wasn't so stinkin' tight.
6:45 - Guy comes in to get a chest x-ray to see if they can take out this drainage tube. I'm sick of this thing!
7:02 - Med student came in again to listen to my heart. Yup, still ticking away.
7:05 - Dropped the biggest, greenest poop of my life. Keep in mind, my life has only been 7 days, but still, I was proud of myself.
7:12 - Surgery fellow came by. He's waiting for the x-ray to be done, but wants to take out that chest tube.
7:19 - X-ray must have shown no more fluid. (I'd have told him if he would just ask me!) Out with the tube, but yowza did that hurt!
7:25 - Nurse came in with some grape-flavored Tylenol. Yum - dessert!
7:34 - Blood guy came by to stick me in the heel - AGAIN. Good thing I don't have to walk anytime soon.
7:39 - Resident and Intern came by to check on me.
7:42 - Yet another chest x-ray to see if fluid accumulated since they took out the drainage tube.
8:20 - I'm giving mom the hungry signs, so she gave me more milk. That stuff is GOOOOOD! Wish they would have let me eat a little earlier in my life.
8:29 - Off to the echocardiogram room. They even let Dad tag along. The best part - I got to ride the elevator!
So - what did YOU do this morning?
