Awww things never smelled so good!
THe next thing I remember is a nebulizer being shoved in my face because I wouldn't breathe and a man next to me in recovery screaming "KRYSTLE!" which apparently was also the name of his fiance while he attmped to break free of his bed. The man had just had hip=replacement surgery and was attempting to break free. The nurse later told me I just kept asking for ice and telling him to "shhh." The dude was interrupting my sleep! Thus began my 6 days in ICU. Cathaters, IVs, Blood drawings, Drugs, pain, etc.
Honestly, things haven't been that bad. My head constantly hurts...and I get random shooting pains. But, I honestly thought it would be worse...and morphine worked well in the hospital and vicodin is keeping me sane at home! I am now home, and happy. I can't wait to go back to work...though at the same time...I can wait...and will wait. I don't think you can teach on vicodin!
