Just thought I'd share my hospital "beauty" picture from June...as my avatar...at least for a bit. Everything considered...I look pretty bad.
Of course it's important. It's an email...

I fixed it for you. If you have trouble taking it down (or changing it to something else) when you want it gone, let me know and I'll fix it for you again. Just shoot me a PM. :)

PS - glad you're better now!

HIV is certainly character-building. It's made me see all of the shallow things we cling to, like ego and vanity. Of course, I'd rather have a few more T-cells and a little less character. Randy Shilts

Thanks for the assistance Ann. Thought I'd done it correctly...don't ask me to fix your car.

Picture is small but if you look closely you can just barely see the thee tubes down my throat. One to help me breathe (blue tubing), one so the medical staff could easily poke around inside me if they wanted to, and one that was used to "pump" my lungs dry of blood and fluid.

Lovely way to live.

The only things I could move at that point were my head and somewhat my arms. Arms are tied since when coming out of sedation some people have a tendency to try to remove the tubes on their own. Frankly, I can't say that I even felt them. Probably was too exhausted at that point. But really don't remember but bits and pieces and have trouble even piecing those together now.

Unfortunately for me the experience seems to still be affecting me...if not physically, mentally.

Take care
