First off, I am still in awe of the love that everyone left on the Women’s Running Magazine “Blogger on the Run” feature from yesterday. While I lounged on the couch, I read every single comment and was motivated to make sure that when I can get back out there, I will!
Also, if anyone is a new reader— HI and welcome. Hope you stick around and enjoy things!
So, my surgery came and went on Tuesday.
Oh those sweet sunglasses. My friend Holly’s mama is the head nurse in the surgery portion of the hospital, so she came in to say hi. Well as she is giving me a big ole mom hug, she pulls out these fun glasses from Holly! She just knows I love to have fun! Sadly they are not Operating Room (OR) appropriate.
But the staff at St Joseph’s/Candler is always so sweet. My Nurse Anesthetist even put an air heater under the warm blankets right when I got back into the OR. Because you know they keep hospitals like an igloo. Then they started the fun juice….. 3.2.1…
My doctor has the best bedside manner and explained to hubs & my mama, that they removed quite a bit of adhesions that were sticking my colon plus other organs to my abdominal cavity. Hence all the pain I was in previously.
So I am bloated and in pain, but NO pain after I eat nor pukey feeling! SCORE! I have a hard time moving, since they make small incisions through your abdomen. The only weird side effect is that my legs have the worst cramps, so I am wearing my zensahs and drinking water with nuun. Once I can move a little more, I am going to take my stick roller to them.
So for the next few days, I am going to lay around while receiving “Princess Pampering”. Which I have to receive, since it was on the paperwork from the doctor’s office. Which I have to say, my family is doing a great job! My mom came down for the surgery and my dad is on his way now to spend a few days with us as well. Gee golly, I love my family!
Oh and I would be remiss if I did not wish my husband a Happy Birthday (yesterday) and my Dad a Happy Birthday (today!). To the two men in my life, I love you guys. Thanks for being there for me and loving me no matter what!
