It sux!!!
Posted on August 27th, 2008 at 6:00 am by Noshi

So why did  my surgery had to be AFTER my 18th birthday again? Right now I’ve been 18 years old for 23 days and so far it sux. I started physiotherapy yesterday, and have to come back Friday. It just popped to mind that in a few days some hell of a stack of bills will fly into my mail box. I never really took the time to look into my insurance stuff because I at least thought it would be before my 18th bday. And before I could even say nya, my room started to become a total mess because of that leak in the radiator. That room I’ve been living in for 12 years straight without a change, and in which I can’t even sleep now yet. I’m 18 and sleeping in my mommy’s bed <__< I’m afraid that I might get into some serious money problems if I won’t be able to start working again soon. I’ll have to finish the physiotherapy as soon as possible, have to try my hardest to get myself mobile again. Also I might get into all that school stress again, since I still have to contact “someone” from those teachers to tell me what to do with my current situation. I might have to skip school for the first week or maybe two weeks. I hope I won’t be missing too much. It’d suck to have recovered to go stress my butt out right away for school =__=

Tomorrow I have to go to the hospital again for a check up. I hope that’ll go well since I am still not able to sit for a long time. And those people are really good at letting their patients wait for a long time >_> Well at least I got an excuse to skip my shot against thrombosis then. They said I had to give myself shots against thrombosis for 6 freaking weeks. I hate those shots and especially since I have to do it myself. Those shots hurt like hell, and not because of the needle itself, but rather the fluid that’s in the injection. as soon as I can function like a normal person again, which I expect to be soon, I’ll quit the injections. No way I’ll be giving myself shots for 6 weeks.

Well yeah it seems that I’m not in a good mood today, just had to write it off, although this is just a tip of the iceberg of big nuisances.

That granny next to me
Posted on August 23rd, 2008 at 2:20 pm by Noshi

I felt bored and all of a sudden some thoughts about my stay in the hospital arose.

So I mentioned few posts back that there were a lot of old people on that same department where I stayed. Well, there was this particular old lady lying in a bed next to me that was just so.. weird that I remembered her as that weird granny.

She had the looks of mrs. Fowl from Jimmy Neutron cartoon series XD but she also talked like that. First thing I remember of her is that she talks A LOT. And not to other patients in particular but usually through the phone. And then she always used to talk about the same things to different people. Everyday she had a new topic to talk about, it sounded so routine, everytime it was almost as if she was bragging about it.

I never talked much to her though, no kidding, because I was always staring at the  ceiling and once I could, I turned on my side so I didn’t feel bothered with the rest of the room. But her talks about how they heated up her blanket, or what she saw on tv, or what happened to her diaper kept on going the whole day long. I totally got frustrated when one day she started gossiping about me like : “that poor 18 year old girl next to me that had 3 surgeries and that is always so quiet, but I won’t say a thing about that because she might get frustrated”. So rude, I thought. You don’t hear me talking to my friends about “that foul mouthed granny next to me that does nothing but calling people and letting her diaper overflow” either. XD

The structure of her sentences were always the same throughout the whole days she got called. Always like: “I can use my left hip for 100% and my right hip for 10%!” and “Yesh yesh, and they have this device that is green, with soft lining in a U-shape and handles I can hold my hands on so I can actually lean on it.”
But that’s just how it is I think, because she never did anything else the whole day for 6 weeks, she probably didn’t have anything else to talk about than those same topics all over again. I’m sure the people she called enjoyed hearing how she was doing. I was hearing it 30 times a day

When she heard she was going to be transferred to another hospital for rehabilitation, she freaked out. Because she was “always a control freak, I got that from my father. All the stuff on the closet always have to stand in the same order and now I’ll have to mess that up.” She had to call everyone she knew, and I  mean everyone. So the whole day I heard nothing more than: “I’m leaving this place tomorrow between 10 and half pas 10. I heard that today around 12 o’clock. Yesh yesh very unexpected, I panicked when I heard it, because I won’t be able to pack my own stuff as I want to, but luckily there was this lady that is the nurse of a good friend of mine, and she offered to help me etc”

She felt so home there that she wanted to donate 150 euros to the nurses of the department. “as a gratitude for your kindness and your help and always being so patient with me”. Well in the end it was 50 euros because they refused to take that much money as a gift, and she finally disappeared with the ambulance staff.

So it finally got quiet. It was the same day as my leave would be though, I enjoyed the silence and took a nap before my mom and aunt would come pick me up. Writing this I hope I can get her out of my subconsciousness, I think I got brainwashed a bit because of her repeating and repeating and repeating and repeating…

I’m home
Posted on August 20th, 2008 at 9:51 am by Noshi

I’m home at last. I didn’t update for a while since I decided to let my bf take away my laptop from the hospital to prevent it from being stolen.

The surgery went pretty well. It took them a few hours to take out all the metal from my previous operations out of my back, but that went well and with care so I’m glad about that. Then they attached some longer pieces since my previous ones were too short because I had grown. I heard my wound started leaking again for a while after they were done, and that I lost like 4 litres of blood. But in the end I must say they did a pretty good job 🙂 And I can happily say that my back is STRAIGHT again^^ (and that I;ve grown some more cm which would probably make me one of the longest chinese girls XD

For the ones who still don’t know what I’m talking about, they discovered scoliosis when I was around 12/13 years old, and had two surgeries for that when I was 14. After a while it grew weird again because I had grown again.But my previous surgeon didn’t want to do it over again because he said it was too riskful and not possible to correct so I went to another hospital for a second opinion…. which left me waiting for 10 months or so >__>  and messed up a lot before that time but oh well…

I recovered rather fast and didn’t want to know of morphine very soon after the surgery too. I’m home now and going to be recovering for a few weeks. I’d like to thank everyone visiting me and supporting and stuff ^^

First day in hospital
Posted on August 14th, 2008 at 3:45 am by Noshi

I’ve got internet ! 😀

I had to bring my laptop with me to check if the hospital had internet and I’m so happy it does XD this makes my stay here so much better. Tomorrow is my surgery, but I’ll try to keep this blog updated.

For the people I know they are reading this: I’m in the Erasmus MC in Rotterdam. My phone is allowed to be on, visiting hours are from 15.00 to 19.30 to avoid hindrance for the other people on my dorm, there are not more than two people around, but it should be ok if people take turns with going into my room. I’ll probably be on the “Ortopaedie” department, but tomorrow and day after tomorrow I might be on the intensive care, so if you visit, don’t come before Sunday XD I’ll probably be stoning out from full narcosis, that’s why.

Noshi edit 1: I’m in a room with old people XD This is like.. my worst nightmare, but as long as they won’t bite (with our without teeth) then I hope I can bear with it XDD
Also thinking of hiring a TV after my surgery.. but don’t think I will be watching the olympics during my stay =/ I think I can watch that online anyway too XD

Noshi edit 2: it’s 11 in the evening, and I’m about to brush my teeth and put stuff away in my locker. Today a new guy came in in the afternoon. He looked uhm.. bloody. He left but is now here again and it seems like he’s in a lot of pain O__o. Also I can already hear old people snoring.. thank god for mp4 player XD

So.. take care everyone, if I don’t post here anymore, I’ll probably won’t be posting again till Sunday or so.

Noshi’s announcements
Posted on August 4th, 2008 at 8:35 pm by Noshi

First off: It’s my 18th birthdaaaaayyy =D

Even though some ppl already congratulated me on the wrong dates, I’m finally really 18 right now. I had a nice day today. No pressure and stress about ppl visiting me and stuff. The day started off great already. Ppl started bothering me with their congrats-texts early in the morning already<3 XD as I wanted to continue to sleep, I prepared myself for being scolded by my mom because I didn’t wake up before 1 pm as I promised to XD

So what did Noshi get for b-day prezzies?
My newest love:click me
I can’t believe I actually have a laptop now. My mom asked me what I wanted for my birthday and I said I was saving up money for a laptop. So she bought me this one. She’s actually totally clueless when it comes to electronics and stuff, since she bought it before even telling me O__o she said I could pay what I already saved up so far, and that she’d pay the rest ^^ And it’s a good laptop too! XD at first I’d go for the Asus, because it’s small, and light, and ideal to carry around, but this one is actually pretty good and fast =D

And also this weird little thingy
Ah.. I hope I can get myself to wake up in a better way before school starts for me XD this doesn’t seem like a fun way to wake up… well.. actually it does, but I ain’t telling the colleague that got this for me XDDDMy boyfriend was going to give me a totoro ^^ but it still has to arrive by catbus
j/k, it just hasn’t arrived yet, so until then, my bf is my totoro  :PMy mom, sis, bf and me went to the Hague today to do some random shopping and I bought stuffs for sushi-making^^ Then we got to a Chinese restaurant and had some really good food ^A ^

But for the rest I just went chilling at my bf’s place, and even received another prezzie from his mom O__o really unexpected but very nice ^^ So it wasn’t an over the top party because most of my family were (still) on vacation and most of my friends too, but the real bday party is Friday =D

Now to something a bit more serious

13th of August the insurance ppl will come and check up my room for the real costs of the damage. (my bed is starting to grow funky orange mildew or something) they said: between 8 and 2 o’clock. Yeh, way to make a proper appointment with someone not being able to sleep in her own room for over 2 weeks or so >__>

14th of August I’ll be going to the hospital for preparations since the surgery on my back will be on the 15th of August. I FINALLY got a date for that which makes me happy on one side, but rather angry, sad and frustrated on the other side. I could’ve been celebrating my bday in HK if I weren’t waiting for an actual date for the surgery. They sent the letter two weeks before the real date, so it’s like, having just two weeks to get everything settled which is rather hard with my room being such a mess for example.

They say I might have to stay in the hospital bed for 2 weeks, but I hope they are just taking exaggerated measurements for my recovery. I’ve never been in hospital for more than 1 week, so I hope it won’t take more than that one time either XD After that they say I might have to lay down for a month maybe. A part of the reason why I wanted a laptop XD

This will be my last surgery. After my previous surgery they said I didn’t need any more, but I felt like it wasn’t really done yet. So I went to another hospital for a second opinion; this surgery will finish the last bits so everything on my back gets better. Hope it’ll all go well. I’m not really nervous about it or something. It is another hospital than my previous two surgeries but that’s ok. Even the nurses were astounded that I was so uhm.. “coldblooded” for my first surgery on my 14th XD

I’ve been through rather a lot of crap lately. Some ppl in my (in)direct environment know XD. If you don’t, plz don’t comment here but just add me on msn or something. Also I’ll be in the Erasmus hospital in Rotterdam, if ppl reading this would like to visit XD

I’ll try to keep this blog updated before and during hospital. If not, then say hi if you must, and/or enjoy the res of your summer as I will too, no matter what =D
