A short visit to the office

All I'm good for is a quick pop in visit to clear my email and make sure nothing exploded on my desk in the past couple of days. I slept the entire train ride into Grand Central today. Thank you, Codeine! That was the only positive thing I can mention. I am going back to see the doctor again. I am not at all certain that things are progressing as they are supposed to. In fact, as the bruising appears to be getting worse -- darker and more extensive -- I am concerned that I may be bleeding internally still. So, off I go again.

Thanks for all the nice comments y'all have left. Even if I have not replied to them, I have read them all and appreciated each one of them.


The doctor said that I am in the 5-10% of those who experience these kinds of reactions. Not to worry, he claims. It will all clear up in time. Of course, I have to go back next week. In the meantime, the nice doctor has upped the painkillers from codeine to percoset. Boy oh boy, that percoset is much stronger.

You know, I've been out of town since last Wednesday with no time to surf, so I had to scroll down to find out why you were on codeine and bruised. Needless to say I was quite surprised, but...WHAT A MAN! Way to take one for the team!

I'm sorry you're feeling awful, but, wow, you have the undying admiration of women everywhere who've undergone tubal ligations---AFTER suffering through the joys of multiple pregnancies---because their men were too chickensh#$ to do the deal. Good on you for being brave!

Enjoy your hallucinations...

Percoset for me is like an effervescent acid trip....

If you start having weird dreams and random bouts of sweating, blame it on your new friend...Percoset.

Time heals, speedy recovery RP.

Yeowwwch! You poor widdle baby. Percocets will *definitely* help.

As I'm sure you know, it went down exactly the same way in my household. . .except we did it while they were pulling my peanut out of the window. I don't think my macho man could have done it. So, see? You ROCK, even while convalescing! (P.S. I absolutely adore the British "fall pregnant." It's so elegant, innit? Much better than "cain't get knocked up no mo," huh? *grin*)

Hope you feel better really, really soon.

(And you have no idea how many off-color remarks I had to backspace over while typing this comment! Sheeszh.)

You're a braver man than I, Gunga-Random!

I second that, cringing. As laughter (or in this case, perhaps, very constrained chuckling) can be the best medicine, a dose of Wodehouse might be just the prescription to go with the percocet. Get well soon!
