Happy Ex-V-day, world.
They released me from "jail" (aka the hospital)
So, I'm back from the Baltimore scorge. Baltimore in 12 inches of snow doesn't look any better then Baltimore with 0. All the snow is melted in VA, it is a balmy 55 degrees.
Diagnosis: small AVM.
Thursday was the surgery. On Friday, I was of sufficient mind to be a totally nasty person to someone who called me. Long distance, no less.
They said it went well. Saturday, I started puking.48 hours later, I was still doing so, so they did another MRI and things looked fine. Just stress? What on earth would I have to be stressed about..
Tuesday was puke free. Wed morning, on morning rounds, some young resident's overpowering cologne made it start up again. I threw up, fortuantly, not on him. (or maybe thats unfortuante- he's the one that provoked it!)
I always thought one had to be pregnant, before certain odors provoked puking. I am most definatly not pregnant.(this one is a first) It took much of that day, to get the unpleasant odor out of the room. (the cologne, not the throwup!)
So this morning, they released me. The first item of business, dulling my now-raging appetite. 3.5 plates of Chinese, fixed that one pretty well.
Second order of business- go home and sleep like dead.
Neuro-opth "Remember, you're coming back here in two weeks! Now get out of here, before we think up something else to do to you."
The eye muscle problem, remarkably, has remained unaffected off all this. But now the Neuro-Opth really doesn't want to do (other) surgery- till everything is deadbolt stable.
I think thats a pretty good idea, I've had more then enough of surgery for awhile.
Then I got home.
A sweeter sight I haven't seen in a long time.

2. Sardines, rice, and soy sauce. A family tradition, that my dad started in college. The only person who doesn't like this combo is my mom.
3. Cheetos. (along with chocolate, my must-have)
(I love my sodium, if I ever had to restrict it, just kill me now)
