....doing quite well after today's surgery.
....relieved that it's over, my procedure was bumped twice (due to emergencies) and everyone at BGH was terrific, but such a long day.
....managing the discomfort with just Tylenol, but I have plenty of the strong stuff. I even turned down the hit of Dilauded in post-op because I don't want the itches it gives me.
....planning on sleeping in an upright position with ice packs tucked under my arms.
....working on crossword puzzles to de-fuzz my brain.
....sticking to liquids, as long as I can, to get past the dehydration (nurse made me goop up my lips in post-op because she said they hurt to look at) and to slowly get my digestion back on track.
....not allowed to remove the surgical bra until I see the doc on Thursday, but I did scrub it around to remove the writing that said "no Steri-Strips" and "UP".
....wondering why the "UP" was necessary, maybe they had to put me on my head to get this reversal of gravity effect going?
