off I am not feeling too bad. I was feeling really sick & lightheaded most of yesterday
but today I'm just a little sore where the incisions are. My throat hurts from where
the breathing tube was, and my neck & shoulders are a bit tender, but overall I am
feeling ok and am quite happy lazing out on the couch watching T.V.
I can definitely say that the worst moment so far has been nearly puking in the
hospital hallway with just those mesh hospital undies on (I was trying to make it to
a garbage can) and then crying when I realized there was nothing to throw up. The
best part so far has been the care I have been getting from my husband, that boy
must really love me to have sat in the waiting room for 6 hours only to have me be
completely incoherent when he was finally able to see me. He bought me 6 magazines,
the 1st season of mad men, and made me a beautiful rice & lentil soup for dinner, a
soup I could not even think of eating, but it looked good!
My very bestest yoga friend came to pick us up after the surgery and brought us home,
she stayed with me for most of the night and waited on me hand and foot. She would
NOT let me up for anything other then bathroom trips. All drinks, remotes, phones,
drugs, were brought right to me when I even glanced in their general direction.
She attempted to watch some of the Mad Men with me, but I don't think it is her
favorite show.....I forgot how down right mean the characters are to any human
who is not a white male. OOPS!
I have to say, I felt quite loved an pampered over the last few days (did I mention
another friend took me out for a pre-op spa day as well?). Yup, I'm thinking of doing
this surgery thing more often! I really hope everything went well, I heard a nurse say
that they found the Endo and it was excised but I will not hear more until I meet with
the doctor. For now I'm going to try and take it easy and heal properly, do my best
to relax and enjoy the few days I have off.
Thank you all for the support you have given me over the last few weeks as I
mentally prepared for the surgery!!
