Taking it Easy at Home


Everything went well today. I did not talk to my doctor post surgery, but he did talk to Michael. There were two cysts on my ovaries - one on each. Those were removed. There was some sort of growth on my cervix - also removed now. And some edometriosis, which was lasered. I'm sure I'll get more details when I see the doctor again in about ten days. He did tell Michael that he feels confident that we will be able to conceive now. That's exciting!

When I came out of surgery and started waking up, my teeth were chattering. I wasn't cold, so it was a really weird experience. They gave me some meds and kept me on the oxygen for a while and it improved.

Since I've been home, I've had a little bit to eat, and I've slept on and off. The pain isn't bad at all right now, but I'll be taking my first Vicodin in about an hour. The nurse told me to use it at least for the first day instead of letting the pain increase and then taking it. I'm all for avoiding pain.

Michael has been great. I'm in good hands here. He has to work tomorrow night, though. So, my mom will probably come up and stay with me for a while. I'm looking forward to seeing her. I want my mommy!

Thanks for all your prayers and supportive comments. I know I was being thought of by so many friends and family members today, and that was very comforting.
