So this morning, the last of my IV medicine was pumped into my arm. Then the nurse came and the idea was to unplug me, remove the tubes and pointy things, and generally that would be the end of lugging those annoying IV pumps around everywhere.
Well, she did unhook the pumps, and most of the tubes. But she didn’t think my leg had healed enough yet. I’m seeing my doctor tomorrow anyways, and my doctor has already given me a bunch of pills to take over where the IVs left off, but nonetheless, the nurse was uncertain.
So she decided to leave the pointy thing in my arm, with just a few inches of tube, and a little cork (so to speak) on the end of it. If my doctor felt that the IV was not needed, then my doctor could remove it. If she decides that more IV medicine is needed, then they could try using that existing tube.
I was unenthusiastic about this plan. For one thing, that IV has been in for 6 days now and the nurse even said it might not be good much longer. Especially if there’s nothing running on it for 24+ hours to keep it open.
So why leave it there?
I wasn’t thrilled with how she corked and taped it either. It stuck out a bit and kept catching on my sleeve. And the actual end that a new tube would go into, she didn’t cover at all – so it could collect lint and stuff from my shirt.
By the end of the day, I had been to work for a few hours then come home, and somewhere along the way I did catch it on something which gave a tug and hurt. Then my arm got really itchy and I decided that I’d had enough.
I was driving to the grocery store and I passed a house.
And the house had a sign.
And the sign said FREE KITTENS!
And I’m all like OMG! Kitties! I love kitties! I should stop!
No I shouldn’t! I got kitties at home. I don’t need more kitties.
My kitties would hate me with the passion of a thousand white hot fiery nuns!
I should stop and find out what kind they are.
No! If I see them I won’t be able to resist them!
But kitties! They need a home!
Fortunately by the time I’d got through all that in my head, I was at the grocery store.
That’s right, it’s Snail Pr0n! Just before lights-out tonight, I noticed Little Buddy had crawled ontop of Big Blue and was getting, shall we say, amourous with her.
A few days ago I spotted Little Buddy having his way with Speed Racer (whom I thought was a male…) Clearly there’s no question about Little Buddy being a bloke (maybe I should have named him Randy!) but until there are some eggs, I just don’t know for sure about the others.
