Home Sweet Home

I am happy to report that I am indeed home and doing well.

Some of you may have already seen some postings on Facebook.  My husband was posting to my wall, letting others know when I was out of surgery, etc.  If anyone thought I was Superwoman, and posting to FB from the recovery room -- well I'm just not quite that talented.  :)

I want to thank everyone for the prayers and good thoughts you've been sending.  Here is a HUGE THANK YOU, and a hug.  It meant the world to me, knowing that family and friends were praying.

My surgery went very well, took a little longer than expected, but no complications. For me, it seemed like it lasted about 5 minutes.    Hooray, for the anesthesia and procedure that I was so scared about.  That was the easiest part of the whole process.

After surgery was rough, I couldn't keep anything down until the next day.  AND -Who can get any sleep in a hospital at night?  What a long night that was, with all the constant comings and goings of staff.  They were just doing their job keeping a good eye on me, but I just wanted to sleep.  The pain was tolerable, once we got it under control.  Honestly, the nausea was way worse than the pain.

We came home on Tuesday afternoon.  I was slightly nervous about it.  It's very great to be home though, and Alan is taking very good care of me.

I'm as weak as a kitten, and having a little pain and issues.  But this too shall pass.  I am WAY GLAD that my surgery is over!  Now, to be a good girl and take it easy.  Tummy incisions just naturally make you take it easy.  LOL.  I won't be doing much for a while.

Thanks again for your sweet comments, prayers, etc.  You're the best!
