The Big Day!

    So today was my Big Day. Everything went really well and I am recovering. My belly feels full/bloated, and it hurts to take a deep breath, but these symptoms are normal. My five incisions are closed with DermaBond glue. I take naps, and wake about every hour or so to walk around as instructed. This is to help clear the extra gas that is in my belly/around my organs. I was given Rx of Lortab (hydrocodone) elixir, which is a narcotic for pain, and Phenergan which will help relieve any nausea I get. I've taken the Lortab and it is effective.
   My brother and my son took me to surgery and have been with me the whole time to help me. My son makes a great cup of tea! I've gotten lots of texts and shout-outs from friends and loved ones.  I even got a beautiful plant & balloon delivered from my co-workers. These well-wishes are by far the best part of the day! What a girl will do for a little attention around here....
    I'll post pics of my incision tomorrow. I'm really tired from the surgery and also from the fact that I was up until 4am because I simply had to see The Dark Knight Rises (Batman) movie at midnight last night!! Yes, how fitting for me that my last 'meal' was movie popcorn!! Goodnight everyone!


  1. Yay!! Keep walking and walking. You're in your way, amiga!
