The residents came through and put a hose in my neck so that they could keep it irrigated and clean. They are also going to do a CT scan to see how close the leak is to the jugular. Then, I have to stay here until it has substantially resolved. Their estimate is a week. Yikes. I’m going to start putting the “crazy” into “stir crazy.”
Meanwhile, waiting on my oatmeal lunch and pushing them to let me order pureed anything from the menu to put into the g-tube. Right now I haven’t eaten since 6 pm last night and am starting to get a bit hangry.
