All 6 tubes are finally out of me. Yay God! So that means I got to actually sip some soup this moorning. The down side of 'no tubes' means more pain. The reason is because the epidural tube was numbing the lower part of my body, and I didn't feel as nauseated as I do now. Benjamin Franklin always believed the words, "No Pain No Gain". In this situation, that is definitly true.
Stanford hospital offers a wonderful service that has musicians to play for you, You just put yourself on this list, and they will send a musician to your room every day. Yesterday a wonderful harpist performed for me, and today a mellow guitarist. You can also request what kinds of music you like also. It is something I've been wanting to develop through my company, Music Minus Meds.
