Yes! Successful J-Pouch Surgery!
Matt & I are celebrating many things:
– Successful j-pouch surgery!
– Successful bowel movements!
– Shedding of all bags and tubes!
– Early discharge from the hospital!
I am outta here!
Good bye $500 per night room (which we got bumped to for free).
Good bye all-white hospital meals (which you look forward to when you’re hungry and weak).
Good bye lovely nurses who take vitals every 6 hours.
Good bye beds that heave and machines that go beep during the night.
My blessings to all who continue to fight for their lives and are forever entrenched in the medical system. At the hospital I met and saw many, and am familiar with lonely and dreary days when you don’t know when you will go home.
