It was a week ago today I had surgery to “take care” of my uterine fibroids. Once we got back from NYC, all my focus went into getting ready for my surgery ~ cleaning the house, paying all the bills, having “the talk” with FM just in case something happened, etc.
What was suppose to be a 1 hour surgery turned into more than 3 hours due to complications and there was significantly more blood loss than expected. Here we go again with those lovely iron pills 😉 Once they wheeled me into my room, FM gave me something from FG. She sent her FAVORITE stuffed animal and a hand-written get well card that brought tears to my eyes:
There’s nothing like family to get you through the rough spots, is there?!
I spent two full days in the hospital but thankfully was allowed to leave in the early evening on Friday. I was still in considerable pain, and hated to give up the good pain killers available only in the hospital, but the thought of another sleepless night was too much to contemplate. My roommate was OK but there was another woman on the ward screaming at the top of her lungs several times throughout the night. It was so nice to be home and in my own bed!
So for now, my days are spent working on getting healthy again and not a whole lot of anything else.
