Yes I’m home from the hospital and on reduced pain meds enough to trust what may come out of my brain and know that it’s okay to post now. I had my surgery on Feb 14th and came home on the 15th. I have two new friends with me, one is Wendy the Walker and the other is Patty the port-a-potty. We are getting well acquainted with each other and getting quite up close and personal.
The surgery was a little longer than expected and I did end up having part of my pelvic bone removed so I need the Wendy to get around for 4 weeks. The lab results are due back this week so I’ll know which way my nose is pointed after healing is complete. I wanted so badly to get released as soon as possible and the nurses told me that I had to go potty to have that happen. Well, let me tell you, I have never worked so hard in all my life to get something so simple accomplished. On the 3rd or 4th try I even had 2 nurses, 1 aid, my DH and the physical therapist all standing at the bathroom door cheering me on. I wanted to holler to “bring in the national guard!”. You should try it? NOT. Well, by the end of the day I wanted to celebrate so I’m told the whole back wing of the hospital heard me whoop with joy. I was getting to go home……..Everything looks really good and we are hoping that nothing else will be needed. If the margins come back dirty then radiation will be prescribed and that will be very doable. I really appreciate all the thoughts and prayers. You all are so amazing to add me to your lists. Thanks for that.
