Yeah, so, I am home, recovering on the couch … again.
I’m back on Recovery Island.
Ginger ale? Check.
Pink Snuggie being used as a blanket? Check.
Homer taking up most of the Snuggie? Check.
The surgery went well. Unfortunately, the surgeon had to put in the dreaded drains. Boooo! Everyone knows how I feel about the drains. I am going to rest and eat a lot of protein, which the nurses tell me aids in healing. Hopefully, I can get these stupid things out on Friday.
One unfortunate side effect from the surgery this time: Sore throat. It never happened to me before but it happens sometimes when you go under general anesthesia; the tube irritates your throat. David bought me a drink with aloe and wheat grass, though, and that seems to help.
Thank you, everyone, for all the positive thoughts and good vibes today. I truly appreciate it. This should be the last surgery for a long time, so I am quite pleased to have it over, and I’m well on the road to recovery.
My sister is coming out tomorrow, and we are spending the day watching movies, specifically “Precious.” That should be fun, right?
