October 22, 2006 , Day 5


Some new things happened today! I actually got some sleep! This was a slight concern at first, because I was actually swallowing my mucous normally. The problems with that were it was making me nauseous, and that my nurse had scared me into thinking if I wasn't awake all the time with the mucous drip it wouldn't be good. I checked with another nurse and they said it was fine, and that it was wonderful that I was getting some sleep. We had several guests, which was fun. Probably more fun for me than them because I still can't talk much. Another change of absolutely no long term consequence was discovering that my beard is falling out again. I am trying to help them work on the technology aspects of this process. We will have to get the IOOK legal team working on this, but what they really need here is a nice Massage bed, and a bucket under the head hole. Then I could lie on my stomach comfortably and drool into the bucket.

The fever went away without much of a fight. No Walks. I tried to drink some water, but my throat was still swollen and sensitive to water that it was REJECTED and went all over the room instead.

On the medical front, no changes to meds. No ice packs

Lab Results: Nothing real significant here. I expect plateletes and packed red blood cells tomorrow..
