Today I took myself to the bathroom twice. Had to call a nurse to haul iv stand behind me. So the second time I said I couldn't wait until that bag was empty. One of the nurses had said that would be the last bag. Fortunately, the nurse with me this aft said he could make a case for undoing it early. I thus down to just one cable - the drainage bag from my knee. That goes tomorrow. I would not do well as a longterm patient, hooked up all the time. I break the rules, escape when I can, and generally am a problem patient. Of course, I am always reminded how important it is to move so the caretakers usually applaud my efforts. In pain again...still.
