This is all a little sloppy, but I don't really know WTF I'm doing even though this took me better parts of two entire days. Very strange to go over this and to see the shape(s) I was in. Some pictures and all the video's wouldn't download and they are not in chronological order. Sorry. Enjoy what I have....
Day 1 at Westfields in New Richmond. Blue jeans and tennis shoes, both of which fit differently now.
Trying to breathe as best as can through this but it was tough and couldn't get much out of it. This vest would rattle my chest with the hopes of clearing out my lungs.
I am at Regions here. It is my little St. Patrick's Day celebration. Don't really remember this either.
They needed to try something to get me better, so I was moved onto my belly. This is called pronation. The very last resort they had at Regions.
Really starting to swell up. U of M on ECMO The dark red tube is deoxygenated blood and the bright/lighter color red is oxygenated blood going back into my body.
I am pretty sure this is where I am getting transferred to the chair. I'm really messed up and I have no idea.
Not sure of this one either, but it's for rehab. I had know idea what I needed rehab for, I just wanted to sleep.
Holy mother of all that's holy, I'm standing!! (with a dude and two handle bars and about to crash, but who's counting!!)
Real food! They put dye in it to see if I was going to aspirate into my lungs or if I could swallow it.
Gross. But hey, look at the sunflower!
