Well, the first hurdle is over. It was not near as bad as I had feared, praise God. When I woke up in the recovery room I was having quite a lot of pain, but after some "joy juice" got the pain under control rather fast and have not really had much since.
Bryan stayed with me last night and can't hardly walk this morning from the 4 star accommodations, lol. I'm glad he did.... he helped walk me, and all my drains, get to the restroom during the night. I'm now sitting here drinking a cup of coffee and waiting for breakfast. I feel like a queen :)
Thank you to Zoe and Frank for being here during my surgery, and to Tammy and Sharon for bringing me the most gorgeous basket of goodies from all my friends. The doctor said surgery went well, no surprises, and felt confidant that he got all the cancer. I should go home later today and look forward to seeing my friends.
I am so glad the surgery is behind me and I'm looking to the future. Love to each and every one of you.
