Survived Surgery!

I was sent home Saturday late afternoon.

Like i said in my journal.. I am home. :)

I still have a drainage tube in my neck and my lungs didn't handle intubation well so i'm on oxygen for an unknown amount of time.

Sitting on the livingroom couch enjoying some Blazing Saddles with the family. I tend to avoid going down to my room until bed time because even with oxygen it's hard to use the stairs.

Lets hope this is only a short term issue and i'll be able to breathe normally (well as normal as an asthmatic can anyway).
i do not really like this leash of air the keeps me alive.

I'll try to go out and see friends once the tube connected to my chest below the surgery spot it removed (kinda don't wanna risk infection on the surgical area), i have portable oxygen thankfully.

      It sucks I can't smoke pot lol. I hate cigarette smell tho so I tend to not let people smoke around me anyway.
      Also no candles in my house since the fumes could mess with my birds
