Thank you to Everyone for all your help this week❤️🌸
Had a sinus and teeth operation today guys so don’t get shitty when I don’t reply or talk to you. I’m pumped full of drugs and will be for a few days so I don’t really wanna talk to anyone while I’m recovering. Love you all 💙💜👑
The joy of EDS and crappy veins!
I had wisdom tooth surgery yesterday (with a general anaesthetic). Turned out the pre-op assessment person had been talking crap when she said I didn’t need a blood test. Sigh. So before surgery yesterday everyone was frantically running around trying to do urgent bloods on me!
Of course I’d been fasting/not drinking, so my bad veins were even worse than normal. Usually anaesthetists can still get one in my hand, but this time she had to have four attempts - first one failed, second one she got a cannula in (left hand) but not enough blood, third one blew, and the fourth one (right hand) required a nurse literally squeezing my arm as hard as possible to get enough blood out! Ouch!
I was panicking that they wouldn’t get the blood or the results would be bad, but thankfully the surgery went ahead. Hurray.
Of course EDS decided that my ‘simple’ surgery should be more complicated, so my temperature and blood pressure dropped even more than usual and I woke up with a warming blanket and drip! Plus I needed IV anti-emetics. Lol. Nothing is ever simple with EDS!
Three weeks after his bronchoscopy we are back for another general. Adenoids out and grommets in. They requested button up pjs (no zippers allowed 🙄) so party shirt it is 😂. We got the afternoon spot this time so it's going to be a long day 😴. #cf#daysurgery#love#family#finnsfighters#strong#mummasboy
