they're really really lovely people at the hospital, seriously, so kind ;~; ♥

when i had my operation under general anaesthetic (where they stuck metal in my elbow to hold bits together) i went into shock when i came round. i was shaking and crying... i wasn't scared or anything, it was just my body's automatic reaction. apparently it's not uncommon but i'd not experienced it the last 4 times i went under general anaesthetic =/ 5th time lucky?

actually, it was pretty funny. when i woke up, i glanced at the nurse sitting with me in recuperation (whose name is hilary) and said, "is it okay for me to be awake?" so she said "yes" and i... burst into tears.


because kusano is no longer in news.

no word of a lie, i wasn't aware of anything - not who i was, why my arm hurt sfm, what i was doing there (or even where 'there' was) - but i was utterly heartbroken that news is without their notti. after a moment, because i was shaking and my teeth were chattering and i was crying so much, they gave me 6 somethings of morphine (out of the 7 allowed) and put what is known as a 'bair hugger' on me, and eventually i calmed down, and stopped breathing.

obviously, i am breathing again now XD; but morphine acts as a respiratory suppressant amongst other things, so.

v-suke has already explained much of what happened here. after she (and my parents) left, my pseudo-sister (the lovely nurse who is nicer than my actual sister) jacqui took me to the ward where i'd be spending the night (please notice that i do not use the word 'sleeping'). i drifted in and out of sleep from 2am-7am (mostly 'out') and, i dunno, had lots of painkillers and then at 4pm dr. raoul (sadly not an aizawa-sensei but an acceptible substitute) said i could go home, so i am back here at v-suke's again. ♥

does that mean i'm going to make a full recovery? sadly no :( i won't be able to properly straighten my right arm ever again, and i'll be more prone to arthritis in my elbow, and i'll probably need 3 months off work in total... but i'm determined to work hard on my physio, so hopefully it won't be so bad after all!

THANK YOU SO MUCH EVERYONE WHO'S SAID/DONE ANYTHING FOR ME RELATED TO THIS. i am still largely out of it but in a rather large amount of pain (despite the codeine) and my blood pressure was omg-how-are-you-still-conscious!low earlier so i am just going to sort of flop here for a bit until the next batch of painkillers walk into my mouth or sth. I promise, if i haven't already commented i will, asap. just, not tonight ♥

Aww, that really must suck that you wont be able to fully use your arm. But I guess it could be much worse so. Always look at the bright side of life, ne? ^^

And I am glad to hear that the people at the hospital is nice ^^

Take care *hug*

is this a not-so-subtle hint for help? ♥ don't forget to speak if you need anything, ne, i know what you're like for suffering in silence just because you're too stubborn to admit defeat *sternface*

post is unlocked :D

take your sternface elsewhere missy, you already do more than enough for me and we both know it. i am a grown-up, i can drug myself as well as the next 22-and-a-half-year-old 8|

you know very well that i don't just mean the painkillers T_T i will sternface at you all i like, just watch me ♥

(also, sticking 'and-a-half' on the end of that kiiiind of negates any ground you had to stand on when it comes to maturity ;) )

Omp you won't have full use of your arm? *hugs tight* You're amazing to stay chirpy through all this and I really respect you <3 From personal experience, physio can suck but really, working hard pays off. Have some Ueda thoughts and if you feel the need to bitch to someone who's had/going through physio *lends ear* <3 I know this will suck and you'll be in pain for a while but the best I can say is keep pushing forwards. I know there are times it all gets on top of us and we feel the need to just cry but that's what friends are for, ne?

*sends all kinds of love and cookies and warm thoughts over to you*

My sister had a similar kind of fracture I think and I think her job is pretty much the same as yours and she has been able to function well and continue working, so I hope your arm heals the best it can too ♥

And now you made me miss Notti so much ;__; and your love for Johnnies is sort of epic I think :Dv And you really are an amazing person for keeping us updated and staying so positive ♥

I want to keep you positive, physio can do miracles, I am sure you will do great with it and the limitation this brings will be minimal.

I am so so happy you are alive and breathing and all and that you have v-suke and you are amazingly positive and welcome home and just know that I am with you in my thoughts!

I am glad you are back!

When I went into surgery when I was sixteen, I came out of anesthesia much like you did. I didn't talk, tho. I was just aware of crying and shaking uncontrollably and being really, really cold. Slowly, I became more coherent and aware of my surroundings. God, it was so surreal. I recall a nurse trying to comfort me and be a presence while I came around.

*hugs and love* Hang in there! You are loved!!! <3

Oh Pippa bb~ I've been thinking about you a lot lately, and I'm glad that everything went (relatively) well and that you're back home. I also know how draining physical therapy can be, having gone through a year of it with the knee. But I'm sure you can do it, and if you ever want someone to grump at or remind you to ~*~BELIEVE~*~, you know your Zoichi will be more than happy to help. <3

Also, I couldn't come up with anything awesome to write you, so instead, I drawed you something. I hope you approve. >: Rest up and be well, my dear. <3

*cuddlesmush* I know this is no excuse but I was rushing to finish an assignment last night but now that it's done I am all yours. If you still want me :)

<333333333 I'm glad everything went well, and I'm sure your right arm will be fine after physio. *hugs*

i'm glad everything went well <3 take care of yourself (or let vix take care of you) and stay positive (but you're like - one of the most positive people i know, so that won't be a problem, i think XD) (: *squishes you*

I love you so much, babycakes.

hey it's pippa, i am just using vix's laptop because booting shigue up takes too long for one comment~

i did actually mention in this post that i am already home... unless you didn't manage to read beyond the first line of this entry? i was pretty certain that i had said as much, hence my confusion when you asked earlier today. although, i can imagine you're finding it hard to keep up with your flist as well as work, post that 30-days meme and write nano as well!

in any case, sorry for any confusion that may occur through me using vix's account to post =/ it's not something i usually approve of, but i'm tired. ♥

Yes, I did read your entire post. I just didn't remember the bit about leaving when I was speaking with you, because yes, I have been busy. I'm sorry. Perhaps I just shouldn't have said anything because it seems I have upset you.

I do hope you feel better soon.

I will try not to bother you with my apparent inability to keep anything in my short term memory anymore.
