Well... went back to the hospital tonight to FINALLY get that tube taken out. Still off of work for another week though. I tell you what, having all that tape (holding the tubes, & the valve in place) RIPPED off my chest hurt like $#@!

There were spots that the tape actually took skin off!!! I didn't even feel the tube come out, I was still concentrating on the pain from the tape! I want to find the nurse that put all that crap on me and wrap it around her freakin head!

Sorry... just needed to vent.

You know, sometimes I think these nurses do that stuff on purpose. Maybe in this case it would be OK to bury her car with snow...

Tim - you might casually mention that usually people try not to hurt a guy who could bury their car with snow.

They probably did it that way so you wouldn't mess with the tube while you were at home

I can understand them not wanting the tube to move around, but COME ON!!! From the bottom of my rib-cage UP was covered with tape. If I find out which car is hers... she won't be able to find it till SPRING!!!

I tell them that I am allergic to the regular tapes and they always use a paper tape on me. When it has to come off, they just cut the bandage free of the tape and leave the tape on. I go home and take a hot shower and the paper tape just washes free and there is no pain. If you have a hairy chest, next time ask them to shave the hair off, or better yet, do it yourself before you go to the doctor.

SCL,

Yeah... so far so good. Only problem is, I can't lift salt into my hopper. I've told my customers that, and that there is a shortage of salt, so they understand. My whole upper body is pretty weak still. But otherwise I'm doing okay. Looks like I'm going to have a little bit of a break this week as far as weather goes. Give me a little more time to heal, and then maybe I'll be back to 100%.
