Surgery only lasted an hour and a half, but it took me two hours to finally wake up from the anesthetic. I had a nerve block in the back of my leg which made pretty much all of yesterday a piece of cake, but let me tell you...at 3:00 in the morning, my cake walk was WAY over!
For those of you that have had surgeries in the past, you'll know that the doctor always says, "you'll be in a fair amount of pain later tonight, so here are a few prescriptions." Awesome. Thanks Doc.
I would have ended up like Heath Ledger if I was going to take enough Percocet 10's to stay on top of THAT "fair amount of pain"...Good lord, it hurt.
Carlos, of course is being a CHAMP! He gets frustrated if I reach too far for my glass of water on the coffee table, he waits outside the bathroom door to help me when I'm done, and I think He has run to the store half a dozen times already to grab whatever he can for me. AND when I got home from the hospital yesterday there was an arrangement of Callalillies on my counter, my favorite, and he remembered.
I need to go back and get off this sucker, just sitting here at the computer hurts. I'll write more later!
