Well it has been a long and exciting week...
I finally had my surgery to get my gallbladder out...and it went really well...I guess...since I slept through it all. I have 5 little incisions that hurt A LOT and are bruised and itchy right now...but that is a lot more tolerable than a gallstone attack... The only 'problem' was that the nurse couldn't get my IV to go into my hand...so she had to get the anesthesiologists assistant to come down and do it...and he did and it was fine! (and so was he!)
I was sort of excited for my surgery...I was my first time as a real live patient in a hospital and I was pretty pumped about it. Right before they wheel you away to go to the operating room they give you a dose of 'happy juice' that the nurse said would take the nerves off and just relax me a bit. I told her that I was feeling pretty relaxed and not nervous at all...then she dumped the stuff in my IV and my mom said it was only a matter of seconds before I was laughing really hard. I don't remember anything after that until I woke up in the recovery room.
So since Tuesday we haven't really done much...just been lazy. Of course I couldn't do much if I wanted to because anytime I would twitch for the first couple of days either my mom or Stacie would be right next to me with 'what do you need'...'what can I get you'...'what is wrong'...but I tell you what it's been very much appreciated. I FOR SURE would of never made it through my week without them!! I got flowers from a few people which were so nice...my office, Daron and Joe and Jennifer Smith!!
So today we decided to get pedicures...another first for me this week...and as many of you know my huge phobia of feet...this was quite the accomplishment for me. And even just having this nasty picture of our feet on my blog is a big deal! But...I had to show off the cute little flowers!!
