what's the gimmick here?

i did get out yesterday. we made it home okay, but as i was getting out of the car, the stupid little velcro strip holding my arm sling disengaged, and i totally ended up back in agony. I describe the night of my surgery as chasing the devil - i would be in a lot of pain, then get enough drugs in me that i could sleep, but i would sleep for a couple hours, which would mean i wasn't jamming on my drugs every hour, which meant i woke up in agony. I was released with a little medicine ball attached to a cathyeder on my neck, which is supposed to help numb my upper arm. last night was really more of the same in regards to pain & sleep. A. has been super through all this (she camped out in the hospital room w/ me, and has been my second pair of hands overall) - i just hope this doesn't burn her out. i know the surgery was a good thing, rationally, but, in terms of my present condition, morale is way down, and i feel like i took a huge step back in tgerms of pain management and self sufficency.

hopefully, i fly back to ny tomorrow. i am supposed to be seeing my doc in a few hours, and he is going to give me a once over, change my half-cast into a brace, and (man i hope) give me double thumbs for flying tomorrow. w/ my medicine ball and metal plates though, i am sure that the lovely gov't reps of our homeland security will be nothing but understanding and helpful at securty.

i am jack's marvelously mangled morale.

hope everyone else is hunky dory - thanks for all the well wishes guys.

I'm glad the surgery was a success though sorry to hear you're in so much pain. Don't break your other arm beating up TSA employees because I'm sure you're right - they'll be assholes. I wish you a speedy recovery and better spirits =)

Oh my....
With your permission and sufficient healing...I'm going to maybe need to poke that part of your arm. Not anytime soon, of course. Glad you have an extra pair of hands to help you out.
