"Your Home now, Peggy Sue."
Hey Everyone! Everytime I come home from something major, whether it be surgery, a long trip, or a hard day my dad says to me, "Your home now, Peggy Sue" like from that movie, Peggy Sue Got Married. I'm not sure where he got into the habit of doing it but yesterday he said it once more to me.
I'm okay & I'm home. It honestly seems like a blur 24 hours later. I have a hard time waking up from anesthesia & as the day went on I could barely remember the recovery room. The doctor came to see me before, initialed my breast (which I think is hilarious), & proceeded. He said the fibroid came right out without having to remove any breast tissue. Thank God. The nurses were so nice to me & I tried so hard to remain calm because in situations like this it really is the best way to do it. The anesthesiologist was a very nice man & I barely have any bruising from where he did the IV. When I told him I had 2 other surgeries he said to me,"Sorry we don't give frequent flyer miles here". It was cute. I'm not in that much pain which is good but my arm hurts for some odd reason. I dunno I'll ask him on Thursday when I go get the bandages removed.
I just want to thank everyone so much for lending your support to me through all of this. It's hard to pull yourself together in moments of adversity but with kind words it does help. Thank you all!! *hugs*
This surgery does mean alot of changes that I will be putting into effect. For example, I'm nixing caffeine from my diet. I think the head-ache I have right now is caffeine withdrawal but who knows. I want to try to prevent having a 3rd case of fibroids. Little steps but it will make a difference.
OH! And I got a wonderful suprise from CJ on Friday. He sent me roses. Beautiful roses. I couldn't believe it. I never get flowers. Regardless of what happens between him & I, the kind gestures were just something I needed. It's true when they say you can slowly rebuild yourself & your self-esteem with someone new. =)
I'm going to try to get some more sleep. The doctor didn't give me any pain medication so Ive been taking advil & it's been knocking me out. I'll be returning the lovely comments & catching up on everyone's blogs too. Goodnight everyone, and thank you!! =)
