At around 9 I went down to pre op. Luckily they were able to do the edg or Esophagogastroduodenoscopy at the same time as the picc.
So I changed into a gown and was rolled down to level 4. Once I was in the room, my dad and mom with me, they started to take my vitals and stuff. A couple people came in, nurses, doctors, anesthesiologists, etc. since I was one of the first people there for today it went pretty quick.
They have me some relaxing medicine and a few minutes later I was rolled into the operating room. I was pretty coherent which doesn’t usually happen with the relaxing stuff. I was relaxed, but not like the usual daze I’m used to with the medicine.
They attached heart monitors, blankets, and such. They did a quick ultrasound with my arm for a picc and then started to put the anesthesia in.
I was out for a few hours.
The rest of the day I just played on my computer.
Right now I’m on ampicillin or unison as they call it. I have the antibiotic every 6 hours. I did bubble pep for pt. It’s where they fill of a container with water and soap and I take a deep breath, hold for 3 seconds, and blow into a tube to try and make the bubbles blow. I do 4 sets of ten.
It was kind of difficult, especially at the end because I got tired from it.
I started a couple drawings today, which you will probably see soon. My sister and grandma are visiting tomorrow, so I’m happy about that.
That’s all for now,
