Random thought I recalled sharing on this blog but looking back I didn't.

So here it is. Getting the stomach tube was described to me a "minor surgery" Indeed, it was an out patient (meaning I drove to the hospital, was there for three hours and then was given a ride home) procedure. But there was nothing minor about it to me. It was incredibly

painful. I couldn't sleep on my stomach which isn't possible for me. I can not stress enough the pain I was feeling. When you combined that with my mental state about getting the tube in the first place, I wasn't a happy camper. Thankfully, I am sitting here three weeks later feeling almost normal. And when I can hopefully get the button option on my tube (flush to my skin) and get rid of this dangling 16 inch tube, I will feel almost normal again.
