I returned home from the hospital last night around 7pm. The surgery went well except for the fact that I am fat so the dr had a slight problem during the surgery.
Well, I was fat when I went for my pre op appotintment. Well anyways, the surgery went longer than expected. I went into surgery a little after four on Wednesday. I woke up in the recovery room at 8:20 pm. I knew something had went wrong because they told me I would be in recovery around 6:30 or so. I woke up in a lot of pain, the recovery room nurse did not give me enough pain meds so when I went up to my room I was in a lot of pain . My RN for the night stayed at the bedside most of the night. My blood pressure was 160-170s over 112-120 and it finally went down around 3am Thursday morning when we got the pain under control!!! She gave me everything possible and called the dr several times to get more pain meds ordered. She said it was because I only got 2 doses of pain meds in the recovery area!!!
The representative from the nerve stimulator company came to my room yesterday morning to program my remote. We didn't get a good program because of my pain and the
Way I was positioned in the bed. We will get better programs when I go for my post op check up.
Please just say lots of prayers for me today that the pain in my upper back around the surgicial site will go away and go away fast. I am fine if I am still but if I move around or do something that uses back muscles I get tears in my eyes. That is how bad this pain is. If I didn't have to move, I would be good.
I have one more swap package to finish and that will be done tomorrow and mailed out. Then to the ladies that are doing private swaps with me, I will finish up those goodies over the weekend and mail out on Monday. My sweet neighbor came down this morning and stayed with me for a few hours. She straightened up my house, helped me pack a swap box, changed my dressings, helped me to wash off and put clean pjs on. She also made me a cup of coffee full of baileys french vanilla creamer. I had a visitor this morning, a sweet friend that I met while hanging out with my niece and her family, stopped by to say hello and to check on me. I have almost all of my decorating done, we put up our main tree on Christmas Eve. I have received some awesome swap goodies. The house ornament swap that Cindy from Rick Rack and Gingham hosted was amazing. The little houses are pieces of art! I got my tag swap that Susan at its a Cherry World is hosting, Mary Jane was my partner and oh the lovies that she sent me. She made me a Christmas doxie tag!!! I love it so much, I will post pictures later. I have won two blog giveaways that I had posted on my side bar so all that hard work worked out amazing!!! I won two Ginger Bread theme giveaways!! I will take pictures of my goodies to share with you. I still need to take pictures of my Christmas decorations and get those posted but will do that soon.
Please just keep me in your prayers and thank you all for your prayers. I can certainly feel them!
