I totally had myself worked up over something that ended up not being *that* bad. Don't get me wrong, I woke up in A LOT of pain, but it's managable with the meds. I'm very sore...think having a horse kick you in the kidney. It even hurts to breathe, but it's OVER!!
My mother in law took me in for the procedure around noon today. She was great. When I woke up in recovery, the first thing I asked was if they could go get her. They wouldn't, of course, but told me that they would be taking me to her very shortly.
Isn't it weird how HEAVY your limbs feel after anethesia? God, I DO love an anethesiologist though. I *heart* they way they make you feel NO pain!
When I got home, my sweet husband had flowers and balloons for me. He even had the couch set up for me: remote controls, laptop, heating pad, drinks...he is so thoughtful!
My furry children new something was wrong. Especially Jewel. She would not stay off of me. She is a sensitive girl and knows when someone is upset or feels bad. Wookie, however, is NOT liking that she's not the center of attention right now. And she really doesn't like that my "sick" table is in her way. *sigh* drama queen!
Here's a little slide show of some pics that Bobby took today. Enjoy!
