Waiting for Godot...

Now I'm just waiting for the vertebraeplasty, which can hopefully be performed tomorrow, after which I'll be discharged. It's hard to tie anybody down because it's the weekend, and there's still no certainty, but hopefully tomorrow I'll get in, get conscious sedation and get both my back fixed and my line switched back out from the big ol' honkin' Quinton catheter to the smaller Cook catheter.

My beard, which had been staying the same length for the past two weeks, is now falling out. To be expected, of course, but for some reason there's an odd sense of finality to it. When I wipe my hand across my cheek, a poof of little hairs comes out. Well, as I said, I've been expecting it so no biggie.

That's probably all the news that's fit to print until I'm either (a) discharged from the hospital, or (b) other complications prevent the former from happening. So hopefully I'll be writing to you from my apartment in the next couple of days.

Thanks again for your interest and support!!

  1. Nick,
    It's sure great to see you blogging again. I think ya had some of us worried. You sure are
    making things interesting for yourself and Jill out there. So happy to read about those
    PET scan results though. Super-great news!
    Good luck with the back repair tomorrow. If they don't get you some pain relief, all those meds are gonna have you in re-hab when you get outta there. Dilaudid?! Holy Scat!
