Waking up was hard to do

With waking up also came struggles with some of the following:

  • TRACHEOSTOMY – an opening surgically created through the neck into the trachea (windpipe) to allow direct access to the breathing tube and is commonly done in an operating room under general anesthesia.
  • PLEURAL EFFUSION – Abnormal amount of fluid around the lung.
  • HOOKED UP WITH IV DEVICES to allow fluids (such as blood or a liquid medication) to flow directly into a patient’s veins;
  • LIVER DIALYSIS – is a detoxification treatment for liver failure and has shown promise for patients with hepatorenal syndrome. It is similar to hemodialysis and based on the same principles. Like a bioartificial liver device, it is a form of artificial extracorporeal liver support
  • MUSCLE ATROPHY – complete wasting away of muscles
