Visits to the hospital…

I added a couple of pictures of Lisa at different times in the hospital. Her veins are so small that they often have had a tough time putting in IVs etc. It also reminded me of the first time she had surgery to take out her bowel. Surgery was done and we were waiting for her in her room. They brought her down and asked if we would step out while they transferred her to her bed and check her incision. I have never seen such an incision and I’ve had 2 cesarean sections. And on top of that you’re watching her go through so much pain. Lisa was telling me the medication wasn’t working. She had been sliced wide open, a major organ removed and she was in so much pain. They would increase it a little but nothing was working. I felt so terrible for her, she could barely stand the pain. This went on for at least one hour, possibly 2. That’s when I noticed a fluid puddle on the floor. It was the pain medication! There was some sort of hookup that had loosened off and everything they were giving Lisa for pain was on the floor! I can’t imagine the pain she was feeling. They fixed it ASAP! But now they had to catch up to her pain so they gave it her more often and what that did was make her nauseas. So besides being in pain from surgery she was now throwing up which is usually a little tough on the stomach in normal conditions. That is one story I wish I could forget.

They had to put a tube into her tummy because she kept throwing up bile.

Unfortunately the pain killers went into her hands only, until it was brought to the attention of the hospital staff!
