I'm home

I had the surgery Tuesday and they kept me over night. I have to say it sucks. I hurt, but I have been walking from the moment I was brought to my room.  Last night was the first night home, slept pretty good. I actually took a nap when I came home from the hospital. Pretty much no sleep at the hospital. It is true what they say, it is one noisy place. But, I am glad I stayed the night due to the pain.

Pretty swollen at my belly. But, I showered today, feel a bit more alive, even with the pain. Haven't needed pain meds this morning. I am in pain, but it is doable. I have been drinking my water. The nice thing was the hospital food. My first meal was at dinner, so it had been about 30 hrs since I had last eaten. I got a chicken ( grilled) wrap, with side salad and fat free dressing. Sugar free custard and diet soda for dinner. All my choices, of course there was many things to choice from. But, I think I did pretty good. For breakfast, I ordered a banana, scoop of egg and an English muffin and coffee. Again, not too bad. I had a lot to order mostly like french toast or pancakes. But, I was happy with my decisions.

Since I have been home, I have had my HMR shakes and added a banana to them and lean cuisine. Plenty of water and zero coke to help get rid of the gas that they used for surgery.

Thank you everyone for your kind words and prayers. I appreciate them so much.
