First a big thank you to everyone for your well wishes.
I am home and doing just fine, now that I have detoxed from those drugs..
I will tell you all that before surgery, I had numerous fart sessions (so fearful that I would really let one loose when I was out). They give you that little shot of funny medicine to make you woosey before they actually roll you into the OR. I remember the ride in and see the bright lights and that the OR was packed with different pieces of equipment... and then that was it.. God knows how I got from the gurney to the OR table because the next thing I recall is someone calling my name in Post op.
Surgery went a bit longer than expected, but that was my doc just making sure everything was done to his spec. It was sure nice to get a good nap in though..
One thing that was evident .they sure do use the pain drugs (morphine and dilaudid) without hesitation (no wonder I couldn't feel my legs until the afternoon and then I got a freakin headache).
Today is different, all of my usual aches are back.
So what is the first thing I do when I get home.. I jump on the scale (big mistake.. cause that was a downer).. what was I thinking?? After all they probably pumped 2000mls of saline in me, and I have had not had a poop in two days, and you know that's got to be worth a pound or 5!!!.
So, I am supposed to still take it easy... eh! we will see.. I do have a "to do" list.. don't they consider that in the discharge orders...
Anyway... still breezy in the NE... big change from the 80 plus temps we were treated to the last few days... be well
