Nosey Bast*rd: Day + 3Posted: 11/04/2005
Guess what? I had my NG inserted today. Another experience I don’t plan to repeat every evening. 2 feet of tubing was threaded through my nostril down my throat and into my stomach. My eyes were streaming helplessly, and my mother was crying her eyes out for another reason. I can feel the tube in my throat. (I was then X-rayed to check the tube was in the right position and not sticking out of my arse or anything) This is certainly going to take some getting used to. It feels so wrong and I look like a cheap extra on an episode of Star Trek.
My body continues its breakdown. Remember when I was zapped? Well all those cells are now dying off. In the meantime, Alex’s stem cells are sloooowly finding their way to my bone marrow in order to perform the amazing job of rebu
ilding my immunity. At this point I will have a whole new set of challenges to deal with. But a change is as good as a rest, as someone maybe used to say.
