After much debate and worry, I’ve decided to use the helium exit bag method. I kind of tried it before but was not doing it correctly. I experimented with my depleted tank and now see how to operate it properly. I’m not sure when my roommate is getting home so I may check into a hotel to do it.
I think tonight I will go out and get a little drunk and then go buy supplies tomorrow and finish this. I’m oddly happy to know I have a plan of action and my pain will be over soon. I’m almost tempted to go ahead on to a 24 hour Wal-Mart now and get the stuff I need.
