Popping Culture Update: The Big Ouch

Surgery is done. I just got home. The catheter is under my skin.

Not that you can feel it through all the swelling. The pain is just phenomenal, and I've felt some pain before. Every few seconds, a little more of the drugs they used to put me under for surgery wears off and the pain gets just that much worse.

Mrs. Popping Culture is off getting blessed Vicotin. I'm going downstairs under the electric blanket to mutter and whine for the night, but I thought I'd let you savages know that I am alive and reasonably well.

Chemotherapy is scheduled for the next three days but may be pushed back a day if the swelling around this port is not down enough. That's pretty much it for now.

If you ask me, it's enough. Still, happy to be alive, every day is a gift, etc.

Hope you're doing okay, Dan--as okay as you can, anyway. Vicodin is lovely stuff. Make good use of it.
