week four frustration

So.. anyhow.. after the 3 update, I picked up a fever on Sunday and went back to Suburban Hospital. Had a CT scan. Found an infection on my pseudocyst and I've been transferred to the University of Maryland. NPO. The last thing I ate was a 1 inch square of Aaron's poptart in the ER.

Seen by a zillion docs today.. All the "Emergency Surgery" labels make me scared. They also did bloodtyping on me. I should get an MRI sooner or later (probably tomorrow), then the docs will figure out what the game plan will be. I believe one of the more popular options include me getting a sexy NG tube again and get tube fed into my jejunum for about 2 weeks to let my insides chill out a bit, then open surgery to drain the pseudocyst. So, a week recovery from that, and eventually I'll be able to taste food again. But, still, docs haven't really told me anything yet, and I am waiting on an MRI.
