Argh. Another night awake. I so need my relaxation sleep chill out chill out. I've been off a bunch of meds (including NSAIDs) since the 21st and I am trying to handle more pain than I can really manage. Chin up (gotta enjoy it while I can!). Stop whinging. I am doing ok for the most part, the lack of sleep is getting to me though.
At least tonight when nary a wink is in site I'm alert enough to get some things done.
My MedicAlert bracelet came this week. The new perma telegram I have to wear on my person reads:
NEEDS FIBER OPTICS. STOP.
CERVICAL FUSION. STOP.
EHLERS-DANLOS SYNDROME. STOP.
NO LATEX, IODINE. STOP.
Is that really the most important things? I don't know. I went around and around with the MedicAlert peops. EMTs don't usually give Phenergan in the field. Hope not. Anaphylaxis sucks. I figure the MedicAlert thang is another one of those 'if you have it done, taken care of, in place...you won't ever need it' type things. Better safe than sorry.
Still trying to get ye-ole health insurance to deal with the appeal. The fact that I'm having surgery in 9 days is not cause for an expidited appeal in their view.
The list for tomorrow before we fly to New York is daunting. I better try again to sleep. 'nite
