Hey guys, I just wanted to check in real quick. It has been a rather long 30 or so hours, here. Surgery seemed to go well yesterday. They were able to do everything laparoscopically and didn’t have to make any extra incisions. I remember waking up about 8:00 last night, once I was set up in my private room! That’s a little unusual for me, since I usually remember waking up in recovery, but I don’t remember any of that.
After getting all settled in last night, I actually got a decent night’s sleep. Of course I was woken up about 3 or 4 times, but still, it was one of the more restful nights I’ve had in the hospital. Today I’ve been pretty groggy. I think I went a little too far with the morphine pump! But seriously, I’ve spent most of the day sleeping and resting. My poor husband just sat here all day while I slept and didn’t do much else. I haven’t gotten much down today, so I’m gonna spring for some chicken noodle soup tonight and hopefully that’ll go down right.
I’ve had a decent amount of pain today, but it has been manageable. Jarrod did help me get up a couple of times and take a few steps around. I think by tomorrow morning I’ll be a little better suited to move around. As you can probably tell by this post, I’m still pretty out of it today, so hopefully I’ll be able to give you more of an update tomorrow. Thank you all for your encouragement.
