a quickie

WARNING: everything here has been written by a girl on numerous painkillers.

Hi all!
I made it through the surgery!
I ended up getting ELEVEN holes in my body, staying overnight at the hospital(which was not expected... but neither were 11 holes!!)
I am home and on a good amount of pain medicine.
I am doing alright. but it is a bit of a struggle...
my next post will be one about humility and how I think that is one lesson that I need to learn from this experience.
one of the hardest things ion the world for me is to have to depend on other people to take care OF me...I'm a much better caretaker than a care receiver... it makes me feel guilty and is very uncomfortable for me...
all of this being said...
I am healthy(enough) and headed to bed.
Just wanted to thank you all for your thoughts and prayers and let you know that I am among the living... the drug induced and overwhelmed perhaps but here and kicking nontheless.

Today I am grateful to have a family who will take care of me.
I am thankful that my surgery was successful.
I am thankful that in a month this will all be a memory and I will be feeling MUCH better!

Welcome home! Glad the surgery is over for you and do take the time to let others care for you while you heal.

I've been thinking about you and wondering how your surgery went. Glad to hear you are doing well! Don't feel guilty about letting your family take care of you, I'm sure it makes them feel good to help. Take care, get some rest and enjoy the pain killers while you've got them!

Congrats on a great surgery! Now, sit back, relax, and let the meds do their job...and let your family care for you!! I hope you have a speedy recovery and a healthy future.
