Post-Op Reflections.

I survived. I won't give you the hairy scary details and bore you to death, but here's a summary of some of my "take-aways" from this experience...

  • Good nurses make all the difference. Jesus, what a hard job that must be.
  • You find out who loves you (and who doesn't give a shit) when you are going through something like this. And the answers are not what you thought.
  • Heroic acts by friends far and near come in small packages and are often tiny acts of kindness.
  • By comparison (this being my first surgery)... I learned it is harder (for me) to be a loved one of someone having surgery than being the one getting the surgery.
  • Physical pain isn't nearly as bad as fear, in and of itself
  • Peeing is special... especially after not being able to do so.
  • Chihuahuas are easily offended when you don't let them pounce on your belly
  • Emails can wait.

So these are my thoughts for the day. I have a follow-up doc visit at 1:00 today. That's the news.

glad to hear from you, i was starting to worry. hope all the soreness and tenderness flies out the window soon and hey, you probably lost a few lbs just from them taking your fibroids and uterus out, so there's a plus, right?

Glad you're on the mend! When I had my appendix out Angus the Cat seemed to sense that my stomach was injured and stayed off of it, but was by my side constantly.
