Nymphae Nymphae , in a want to support my fellow poster way, and hopefully not an annoying way, did everything go okay?
I'm still just sitting here waiting for the surgery. Supposed to be last night but there was a miscommunication and I was given food right before they wanted to do the operation, so it was pushed to this morning, and I think I keep being pushed further back because of more important trauma cases that come in. Plan is for surgery tonight though, here's hoping! I appreciate the concern :messenger_smiling:

Every single nurse that has entreted my room has commented on my GBC lol. Wow that's old school, what are you playing? Oh that's nice, you should play Pokemon! (no joke lol). You people don't understand who you're dealing with, I've been mainlining tetris for months. Lol Pokemon.

For sure. The sooner you're back to full health and not dealing with this, the better. How will your recovery look? Will you be able to give us the heads up tomorrow on how it all went? No worries if not, of course.

If all goes well it should be like 3-4 day stay afterwards while the lung gets back to normal. Last time I had this procedure it was 8 days becsuse the lung kept leaking air. You're bed ridden most of the time but they make you go on walks around the building you are in, you have to hook your chest tube to a suction machine that you throw on a little cart and push around lol, its like a super loud air compressor and whenever you walk to a new area everyone is staring at you becsuse of the noise lol. But yeah all in all its not so bad, could be a lot worse.

Anyone interested in a writer's group type of thread? Updating each other on our goals, word counts, drafts, rewrites, maybe submit some work for criticism for those who are comfortable enough. We can encourage each other to meet our goals and prod when we're slacking. Could be helpful. I feel like it's pretty niche. Don't know if it'll have much activity, but what do you guys think?

I don't think we have a thread like that yet. Even if only 10 people post or chime in it may be worth making. If you are actually comfortable with criticism and hearing others out anyway.

Personally, I wouldn't post my actual work here. Others are free to do so and we can offer critique. I just think it might be helpful from a productivity standpoint if we're keeping each other responsible. Making sure we're not slacking. Call-out culture being used for good.
