flight to freedom

surgery update

Home recovering. Cannot get ouf bed without help. Feel very helpless. I only have pain when I try to sit up and move around. The pain is minimal. I'm happy so far, just groggy and useless and dependent as a baby. No nausea from anesthesia, yay! The doc and nurse and anesthesiologist all helped me through my anxiety by touching me on the arm or shoulder as I went under and telling me I would be okay. That was a very peaceful way to go under.

Might not be able to answer calls yet as it hurts to reach over for the land line phone. The cell is in my bed though and I can read text messages without moving much.

Thank you to those who posted and texted messages. It means the world to me!
