Today is my first biopsy.
A biopsy is a procedure where they take a small machine that goes through your veins, and takes a piece of your tissue. For me, it’ll take a piece of my heart tissue. That way, the doctors can test my rejection.
The nurses put some “happy juice” inside of me. I instantly got high. I actually like this feeling! Then I went to sleep.
When I woke up there was band-aid over my incision area. I felt nothing during the procedure. I think it only took 15 minutes. I was told not to move for 2 hours. I was feeling really sweaty by the time that 2 hours was up. The reason was because of my hot and cold sensations; I feel extremely hot when I lie down.
I’ve resorted to watching tons of movies.
Today I’m watching Lord of the Rings.
My hot and cold sensations are so uncomfortable that I can’t even sit comfortably. I always have to adjust myself so that I don’t get sweaty.
I also keep hearing my heart pounding. It’s always THUMP, THUMP, THUMP, all the time. Even when I’m doing nothing!
I also can’t get any sleep. None. I’m doing nothing all day yet I can’t get any sleep. That sucks.
