This is what I woke up to this morning.


Bloody sheets. I bit my tongue at some point last night and was unaware of it. I woke to a scene like this. Not too pleasant and very confusing. I thought my port access had leaked. The position it is in this time makes if difficult for me to tell if the tube leading into my chest is clamped on to or not. So that was my first thought. Then the second thought was a bloody nose. Nope not that either. Then I started to check all over and there was a lot of blood in the pit of of my arm. So I went into the bathroom to grab a rag and clean it off. Nope, that wasn't it. Then I looked in my mouth and holy moly that was it. The entire interior of my mouth was covered in blood. So I rinsed it out and discovered a nice clot on my tongue that I cleaned out and there was the tooth mark almost in the middle of my tongue. I went out to dinner last at the Prime Steakhouse in downtown Madison With Phil and Rachel. I had a small meal of Oysters Rockefeller, Foie Gras and 3 Oz of A-5 Wagyu Steak. I must have bitten it there and not realized it. So I am guessing I am pretty much done taking food by mouth now. My tongue is not even giving me pain messages any more so chewing food is not a good idea. Bummer. Russ
