Treatment report (2014/08/12)

Nothing really special today.
This morning, the roommate in front of me (separated by 2 curtains) left hospital, so I am now the patient with the longest stay in this room.
Previous roommate always spoke to himself while sleeping, so it's great that he finally left hospital

Among the two roommates remaining with me in this hospital room,
 - first one snores loudly ...
 - second one likes to play with room's air conditioner settings ... I don't know why he set temperature room to 28℃ .... maybe a game with me, I don't know.
Anyway, I plan to restore temperature to 26℃ as soon he changes it ... I have no choice, because his favorite temperature feels like hell to me.
And if he really continues to bother me, I will pour extra strong bond on air conditioner remote controller buttons

Doctor now use small syringe to pour sterilized solution in my mouth's scar in order to clean it, which is a sign that everything is going well for it
Also, according to the doctor, there's no longer need to clean this scar twice a day : once a day is now enough, which is another good sign about this scar :]
I hope this scar will close properly this week. After that, I finally will be able to start eating rehabilitation !!

On Saturn dev side (at first, this blog was intended to be a Saturn dev related blog !), I had fun with interrupt C and code executing on ROM ... except constant ones (of course), no global variable is allowed for ROM code ! Ouch.
Still not compiling, less than half of the project is coded, nothing tested, so I will continue tomorrow

There were no message yesterday, because nothing special done. In fact, it was a shampoo / shower free day, but hey, it was Sunday, so I do anything I want
BTW, here is a picture took during yesterday typhoon :
Except rain, clouds, and some wind, there were nothing special about this typhoon, as usual in this region

Today was anniversary day :
 - One month from entering hospital
 - 4 weeks from surgery day

By reminding the first weeks after surgery, I can feel now I'm getting better and better :]
And, doctor told me today that scar in my mouth is closing little by little, so that I will probably start "eat by using mouth" rehabilitation this week

Shower this morning. Glad that my shower rhythm is becoming similar to pre-surgery times

This morning, doctor told that I don't need band-aid on my throat anymore !
From surgery until now, scar was cleaned and band-aid changed every morning, but now, only a small scab is remaining, so that band-aid is no longer needed.

Tomorrow morning, typhoon is likely to come around the area where the hospital is ... I can't wait to see storms and heavy rain from my hospital window

Shower, and shampoo this morning.
Everyday, I beg nurses to get a shower in the wide shower room (only one available for around 30 patients), and they always manage to let me getting a shower, which is nice from them.

After that, I had my game gear changed. As the concerned scar is near my left ear and that tape is used to make everything hermetic around the scar, it was quite a pain to remove tape on my hair >_<
Then, cleaning of the pus inside of my mouth ... as usual, some pus is accumulating, and scar doesn't want to close ...

Shower this morning, yeaaah !
Because of scars, feeding tube and my new negative pressure device, I can't shower around head, but it was better than nothing.

BTW, here are some pictures of what I currently carry with me :
negative pressure device
I nicknamed it "game gear"

Bottle that contains my breakfast/lunch/dinner.
It is empty on the picture, but when it's time to eat,
it is filled with YH Flore aka "stinky milk" .

After that, I felt in a trap.
I was called for the usual "clean the pus in open scar", but 3 doctors were waiting for me.
Me> "Usually, one doctor is fine for this, so why is there so much people this time ?"
Doctor> "Don't worry. Other doctors just want to see how to clean your scar."
Hum ... weird.

After cleaning the scar, it was clear it was a trap when a doctor said something like "by the way, let's change your feeding tube".
Removing the old one was not very funny, and putting the new one was quite painful .
But ! While doctors prepared new feeding tube, I could enjoy around 3 minutes without feeding tube between my nose and stomach
