technology has helped keep me sane,
my trusty chromebook, unlimited data on the phone with 4gb of tethering, bought a couple of 1gb addons for 5quid each. has meant i have been able to post here (lots!) and keep in touch with friends and family using hangouts chat and video calls. I have not even needed to dip into plex and I have 4g at bournemouth hospital :-)
its not perfect, despite having 4 bars there are a lot of phones around here so the cell tower is fairly well loaded, only get around 10mb down and video streams do take a few secs to ramp up the bandwidth available.
its cheaper than the stupid tvs which have the worlds slowest processors and unresponsive touch screens! even if i used 1gb per day its still cheaper than the £5 for the basic tv package!
i think its fair to say that they have bypassed prs successfully and they are pissed about it!
quite funny coming from the bbc who are in a bit of trouble over licensing!
yesterday doctor came down and said nose tube out yesterday and catheter out at midnight.
previously anesthetist a day senior nurses had said its better in the morning. because once you start going it because pretty regular at least once per hours for a few hours after that until the bladder settles down.
from what i can tell the reason for midnight is to ensure there is plenty of time for the bladder to get going before the doc comes round at 9am,
basically... screw your sleep,
so whilst the senior nurse that was on yesterday and is on again today had said it would come out this morning the night team had been told midnight.
now of course this wasn't any night team it was the night team that had been somewhat "interesting" the night before i'm in the process of writing about that, it needs way more than a basic "this is what happened" to do it justice.
so in short, there was no way i was letting the team that consisted of under trained foreigners full on "matron" (carry on films) nurses do anything other than feed me meds and do obs on me!
after explaining that Monika (from the day team) a friendly competent if a little over worked nurse from poland will do it in the morning senior battle axe appeared to explain the "protocol" for "you men" (oh sorry am i some sort of inconvenience to you???!!) and that they WILL be doing it at midnight.
i said no.... pure and simple, i have had very little sleep since tuesday and what I have had has been very broken.... just no.
she disappeared, i put my nice eye patches on, ear plus in fired the button for a shot of morphine and went to sleep.
still not perfect but as close as im going to get with observations at 10pm, 2am and 6am! as well as machines that feel the need to beep incredibly loudly to say they are low on drugs rather than just informing the nurses from a distance!
so now its 7.50am, catheter came out at 7.20, now we wait.
i still have 3 drips and a drain in, one with the button push for morphine another that they are "feeding" me on local anesthetic to the surgery site and the drain from the surgery site which hasn't had much come out in the last 24-36hrs
the end is very definitely in sight!!
i have a picture of the surgery the following day, its not too gorey. Im pondering posting it...
i might just post it as a link with a massive disclaimer, what do you think?
i would love to know the tolerance they are getting of calculated positions vrs actual positions!
NASA has selected the potential next destination for the New Horizons mission to visit after its historic July 14 flyby of the Pluto system. The destination is a small Kuiper Belt object (KBO) known as 2014 MU69 that orbits nearly a billion miles beyond Pluto. New Horizons will perform a series of four maneuvers in late October and early November to set its course toward 2014 MU69 – nicknamed “PT1” (for “Potential Target 1”) – which it expects to reach on January 1, 2019.
Full story here:

its hard work being on the outside. probably harder than being in hospital. I dare say that it might actually be harder on the outside
im quite comfy in here, drugged up, got my internet and relatively comfortable.
thanks for these chocolates for Clare greatly appreciated!
luckily the chromebook and tethering to my phone is possible, even have 4g but its not that fast presumably due to the number of phones in the area. still youtube plex etc is watchable with patience.
what i cant do tho is type one handed! which i have had to do on a few occasions its painful!
i have been recommending this chrome app to people its great if a little frustrating!
Can you touch type?
