Hello to all!
Well first of all...OUCH!!!!
Now that it's out of my system, I just wanted to let you know that everything went fine and I'm home. I'm so thankful for the great staff and the educated hands that "fixed me"! I have to remain in this immobilizer for one month and then it's back to physical therapy for another three months, but hopefully, after that, I'll be back to normal...whatever that may mean!
I'll spare you the pictures, just suffice it to say that it looks a little "halloweenish". After surgery, I had a migraine that wanted to stick with me for the day. The morphine didn't work, so they gave me something called dilaudid. If you've ever had it, you won't forget it. Let's just say that after two doses, I didn't remember much about the trip home. However, I wouldn't want to take it again since the side effects lasted for at least 24 hours...bllleeechhhh...I hate nausea.
OK, you know me, I don't want to dwell on the negative anymore, so I'm going to move past it and do what the Dr. said will make me "all better"! I have a fabulous family that takes very good care of me, loving friends who have filled my dresser with wonderfully scented flowers and my email inbox with notes of thoughtful encouragement and a host of gracious neighbors who have supplied me with enough home-made goodies, I won't remember how to cook when this is over.
I wonder how long I can keep this up?! Tee hee...well, I really would rather be healthy, promise.
