Shortest of updates – chemical pleuradhesis (germanstickyuppydrug pumped in) was carried out this afternoon. Wont lie, it was rather painful and not very nice. My daddy was here, A arrived straight after work, and dear mother staying the night. Took a while to get on top of the pain but am much more comfortable now. A couple of hours or so of constant morphine juggling, that first moment of being able to relax after muscles had been shaking and tense was just so nice, I reveled in it!

Drain now unclamped to allow fluid (plus bleeding caused by tiny agitated lung wall being so furious) to escape. Just so to clarify, this type of procedure is not the gluing that prevents transplant, it is a much more natural but therefore crude version. Please all think extremely sticky thoughts, the stickiest you can, as there is only 50% success rate with this procedure and don’t particularly want to do this again any time in the near future.

Em,
I'm glad they managed to go ahead with the pleuradhesis, but I'm sorry to hear it was so painful. I know thats what you expected, but it certainly doesn't make it one tiny bit easier.

I hope (even if its with aid of morphine) that you get some rest tonight, and awake to find the lung exactly where you left it! I will then continue to think very sticky thoughts every day from now on :)

Take care, sleep tight
Higs from Jac xxx

Oh sweetie,I am thinking as many stickiest uppiest thoughts as I can.

I knew it would be painful,but I didn't want to scare you.I know if someone had told me how painful it was I would have been even more terrified than I was.When my lung stuck itself at home I had kapake and tramadol to take,I thought I was dying,so I absolutely sympathise.I really hope the morphine does the trick and you get a restful nights sleep.

Lots of hugs

Oh Emily, you poor darling. It's just not right that you have to go through so much pain on top of those distressing discussions. This will work, don't worry, and it will be well worth it in the end. My thoughts are going to be STICKY STICKY STICKY all day long. Rest as much as circumstances and discomfort will allow, your body will recuperate all the quicker. Take care love. J.
