I really need to nap... But just so you guys know, surgery went really well. :D
You shoulda seen me when I first woke up. They gave me some pain medicine and I was as giddy as fuck. Apparently sometimes people wake from the anesthetic angry, but I was just ecstatic. And it didn't make me nauseous at all which is awesome. :] I've been wicked weak and tired feeling, but not nauseous at all. The worst of it was the combination of having a liquid only diet at the hospital. (Vegetable broth for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Yum.) and needing to call in a nurse just to pee, I was hooked up to a lot of stuff so I couldn't just use the toilet without some help.
Oh, and it hurt when they stuck the IV in me, but she only had to do it once and once it was over it was fine.
And then they put the anesthetic in me and I felt a little coldness running up my arm, then I got really dizzy and then I woke up. I don't remember falling asleep at all. Anesthetic is weird like that.
I've got tubes sticking out of my chest currently which is annoying but no big deal.
I can't wait until I get the drains out and don't have to wear my surgical binder anymore. I'm wicked excited for that.
Buuttt, I look and feel pretty good for someone that was just cut up.
soooohappy right now. :]
