Her boyfriend says Amanda is doing a lot better and things are looking up. She gets to eat peanut butter and soy pudding. I really hope someone gets her a laptop so she can watch the fall tv shows and then come talk about them here!

Dear PPK, Have I Told You Lately That I Love You?
Alternate title: You Are The Wind Beneath My Wings.

Seriously you guys, thank you all so much! The card and things and especially this thread were so sweet and mean a ton. I'm not going to go into details-details (in part because I don't remember a lot of my first couple weeks here) but the deal is that I was supposed to have minor surgery, no big deal, but apparently in the process of my minor, no big deal surgery, they punctured by bowel and I ended up back in the ER a few days later totally septic and with about a 45% chance of making it through the emergency surgery needed to fix it. So that was fun. Obviously I did make it, proceeded to spend a little more than 2 weeks in the ICU (that's the part I don't remember much, thank you pain killers), then got moved up to another part of the hospital (where I am now) about a week ago. All told I've been here for almost a month (on Sunday) and it is hands down the worst thing that's ever happened to me. OPTIMISM! But no seriously, I don't recommend it at all. I'm missing all the new tv! My legs are too swollen up to wear boots! All my piercings closed up! I'm super pissed about that one.

The bright side is that they're finally talking about sending me home - mid-late next week sometime. I'll still have a giant gaping wound to deal with and I'll still feel shitty, but I'd rather feel shitty at home (or more accurately at my boyfriend's, since I live on a 2nd floor apt and that's a no go just yet) than in a hospital, as I'm sure anyone would agree.

Anyway, that The Story. Thank you guys again for all the thoughts and wishes, it's done a lot to cheer me up in a pretty dark time. Now that I can actually focus for long enough to use a computer again, I'll try to pop into the PPK more - I've been woefully absent even before this.

<3

Wow, that's super scary amandabear! I'm so sorry that you had to go through that, but yay for healing and going home soon! I hope your recuperation is speedy, but includes sufficient time to catch up on some tv!

wait, they punctured your bowel and didn't know it? whoah! (i hope they're not making you pay for this, since it was all their fault.)

I rarely say this, but I hope you're suing the shiitake out of them to cover your medical bills.

And your re-piercing bills.

My friend Sunny almost died last summer, and her problem was totally different but she ended up with a gaping stomach hole that had to be vacuum-closed over a month (fun times), after she was awake she blogged the whole thing with pictures if you want to read about it so you can see how her recovery went.

I gushed on twitter but I'll gush here too - I was totally freaked out when I heard the vague details and I am SO GLAD you are okay. And if it's safe for you to go home (bf's home) then that is great because hospitals suck.

Let me know when you're ready for food or random cheap entertainment and I'll send away!

What a relief to see you post!!! I hope you do get to go home soon and catch up on all the shows--there are some good ones! And maybe ankle boots? I know they're not the same.

Stay strong--you're in my thoughts!

So happy you're doing better and hurrah for leaving the hospital and getting to be in a nice environment being loved on and supported by your partner.

Sending many many many good thoughts for a quick and complete recovery

So nice to see you post! I'm so sorry you've had such a horrible ordeal. I'm with MBM on this one.

Do you like puzzles/puzzle magazines? If so, I can send you some. Those helped save my sanity after my surgery when it was too difficult or tiring to sit up with the laptop long.

Apparently! I'm not sure how you do that but I guess you can. Re: piercings: everything had to come out - I didn't have time (or frankly the presence of mind) the get retainers. Also yes it will all be billed to my insurance. America!

It's been suggested. It's also been suggested that it would be a waste of time. So who even knows. I'm only getting the septum re-pierced, I think, but it bugs me to no end that I have to.

I have a giant gaping stomach hole that's vacuum-closed too! It's horrible. I'm honestly not sure if I can handle looking at pictures of something similar without throwing up. I already have to take drugs when they change the vacuum seal so I don't have a panic attack.

blergh. that's why every pierced person should have an emergency bag of retainers on hand, and stress their importance to their partners.

i don't know any medical malpractice lawyers, otherwise, i would totally shoot them your way. the hospital can't get away with this! (although maybe for future patients they do this to, they might not be as willing to save their lives. if they're just going to turn around and sue them.) bleh. BLEH!!! i hope your insurance covers the whole thing and doesn't raise your rate or anything else.

i'm glad you pulled through though. :-) that's all that matters.

Since she was unconscious for the first month, there aren't any uh, 'fresh' pictures, there are some gross ones she had taken while they were changing her dressing, but there are also a few of her after she got home with her little vacuum dressing on. She also had reconstructive surgery a few months ago because her organs got out of place and she looked six months pregnant, they fixed that and then a plastic surgeon did the closing so she would have a much smaller scars. Anyway, I can email you links to the non-disgusting picture ones.
