Ruby, Matt, Myrna, Joe and I enjoyed a quiet New Year's Eve in my apartment. Ruby made lentil soup and we watched Louis C.K.'s new stand up performance from The Beacon Theater. Since it's been so hard to eat, I'm now getting nutrition through TPN (Total Parenteral Nutrition). It's like an IV but it has a pump which drips a milky solution through my port. It takes about 12 hours so I start around 7 or 8 and sleep with it through the night. Tonight we had an unusual occurrence. Instead of the milky solution going in the port, blood started coming out. I called the on-call nurse and she said to re-prime the pump. We drained the liquid into a tupperware container and it looked like this:
Which reminded me of the ecko logo.
