That was so much fun...

I don't ever want to do it again!!! They had me walking that night of course, and passed all my "tests" to go home the next day. Been busy laying around the house since. Today was the first day I sat up alot and did not just lay around on my back... Gotten off the pain meds as well today. Strictly back to advil and tylenol. They gave me the really good stuff in the hospital of course, but I do not like the way pain meds knock you out of it (and stop you up - that's the WORST part!)

Anyways, just a short note right now. I am posting the picture my lovely bride-to-be took of me while waiting in pre-surgery. I had been walking around for the 2 weeks prior to the surgery with a cane but was told not to bring it to the hospital because they did not want me using it afterwards. So, I got to hobble up to the surgery center
until they got me into the bed and I got approved for pain-meds! And, the few times I had to visit the ladies room I had to have someone with me at all times.... this is what I was designated! My honey still has it in her "keep-sakes" and thought it was hilarious.

I, too, think it's an absolutely fantabulous commentary on my travels through this life in my given skin...

Glad things went well for you! REST, drink plenty of fluids and don't be brave! No one gets medals for tolerating pain. Take the pain meds if you need them! Keep us posted!

I hope all goes well with you now that surgery is over.

I'm glad you found the quote from A&D because I looked for it but had a different publication of the book and it wasn't where you said it was!
It's a great quote.

So glad everything went well and you're back up and around. Too bad they don't let you take the hospital pain meds right home withyou. Some of what they have there are great!! :)

Take care and you and your loved ones have a Happy Thanksgiving!
