Grant is sharing my liquid breakfast with me
It is Saturday morning. Friday was a very strange day..spent at St. Francis hospital waiting around, being asked the same questions repeatedly, being poked and prodded and finally sliced open, repaired, sewed up and sent home. Weird stuff.
But everything went GREAT! The hospital was clean and small and friendly. They never kept me waiting endlessly without word. They honored my requests and just overall...it was decent i am very happy to report. My strategy for anxiety control..was just to not allow myself to think about the operation. It worked very well. I had done all the research and worst case scenario drills weeks prior. Now it was just time to lay back and enjoy the process if that is possible. Oh and it is actually.
Acting a stupid
The great news is she didnt need to use mesh so I am still 100% flesh and bone. It was nice and small and tidy. They used MAC anesthesia on me...which ROCKS by the way. They dont use it very much for some odd reason...but it is PERFECT for small surgeries. Its the same drug as general anesthesia....except they just dont give me enough to stop my breathing. The strangest thing that happened was when I could FEEL THE OPERATION so I said.."um....I can freaking feel that" and boom...the lights went out. Next thing I knew the surgery was over and I was getting ready to leave the operative suite. That is so cool though...that I was already recovered before leaving the place! Rock on.
im so freakin hungry i could eat a nurse
Honestly...I was ready to leave by the time I was back in my 24 hour room as they call it. There was no real recovery time. General A you need lots of that. I am really pleased with MAC and am so very very glad that I found it. Yes its not exactly just local a like i had originally thought. But thank god it wasnt because I COULD STILL FEEL the pain under local.
Only bad news is that Im allergic to Vicodin i guess...big rash and a nights worth of mad itching! So now I get to retry Darvocet which made me vomit when i was a teen.
Grant is handing the "boo boo" very well. He likes to put the ice bag on and console me. Unfortunately the little man is sick with a respiratory thingy. Started like croup..with the barking suddenly Thursday night. Now it is a wet and painful cough with runny nose and I believe aches and pains. So he is struggling to be the happy camper I know him to be. He sure is glad Nana and Papa are here though! He LOVEs them so much and I love to watch them interact. It is a beautiful thing and I am so very glad they are here...cause i am SOOOOOOOOOORRRRRRRRRRREEEEEEEE :)
the best nurse in the world..my mama
