Tuesday, October 2nd 2012

Jeff got the laptop up and running for me here at the hospital.

YEAH JEFF!!!!! :)

So.... I got about 35-40 staples from about 4 or so inches from above my belly button down to the pubic ridge. They removed a 35lb mass from my abdomen, a complete hysterectomy and my appendix removed.

I'm in some pain but I'm actually maneuvering better now than before the surgery. It's going to take a few days for the pathology to come back as I am told. I'm sitting up in chairs and already using the bathroom on my own. I even took a shower this morning.

The nurse said I'm doing the best of all her patients who even had less surgeries than I did.

I'm on an all clear liquid diet... yes, I'm hungry for real food but it ain't happening yet. I just had some broth and jello for lunch. Jeff got me some orange vitamin water and I asked my friend to pick one up for me later. And BTW... Ensure Enlive! is a juice and it's not bad!!! I'm having the mixed berry one.

Anyway.... all in all I'm in no shape to go home yet. My staples are oozing, I'm weak, I feel beat up and I'm self medication Hydromorphone. I'm still om IV fluids and I definitely need to be monitored. I'll be glad when I'll be able to go home though!

I'll write again soon!

God Bless!
