Are We There Yet?

First, I'd like to thank all of you for your kind wishes and comments. Reading them whilst going through this has been a comfort.

From what I am told the surgery went well. Not as well as I would have liked, but still well enough to be said successful.

They finally came and took us cadona and myself before 130 PM down to anesthesiology to prep me and show her where the waiting room was. After some time and even more paperwork the rolled me to get prepped for the epidural. Moved me from the bed to the skinny little operating table, had me sitting at the side with my lags dangling. They gave me something in the IV to make the body more cooperative with the epidural. The surgeon came in and we talked for a moment or two. Other folks talked to me as well. Then the anesthesiologist said something or another and the next thing I know is I am coming to in the recovery room...

Like cd0103 I was not expecting you to post so soon! I was thinking of you today, though. That's great that you are doing so well to post! I'm cheering for you, T, get well soon!

I'm so relieved to read this.

What's the part that didn't go as well as hoped?

And how long are you in for?

Much love and healing thoughts to you, my friend.

It's always nice to wake up on the other side of an event like this. Happy healing.

How lovely to hear you again! So glad you are mending now. We'll look forward to your home coming next. xoxo

I'm glad and I wish you well.

Dang! If I could've gotten a travel assignment to wherever they got you cooped up, I would have painted your toenails in recovery. Curses! Foiled again!

So glad that you are feeling better. Take it super easy, and I pray to God you like Jell-O! I've had 12 surgeries similar to what you had - just follow what they tell you to eat post op.

When you're up to it, let's compare scars!!

Oh my.... I must have missed something. what brought all this on? I have had my fair share of surgeries and know more than most about the workings of the digestive system.... but this seems to have come on all of a sudden. Hope you are doing well and you are bearing up. Take it very easy and enjoy being waited on!!

Glad to hear it went ok, are you home yet?
Aug. 29th, 2010 07:31 pm (UTC)
Wow!!! I am so glad you are ok! (relatively speaking!) I'm chiming in late because I just got back from vacation last night (Saturday).

Perforated insides are bad news! Yay for catching it when you did! Becca's dad went through that a couple of years ago. Very painful! I hope from here on out you have a good and speedy recovery.
