I was awake at 4:45 a.m.
Fed Freedom at 5:15 and let her out for 20 mins.
Hubby was up and ready to go. got my bag and out the door we were to the castle.
arrived at 6 a.m.
but 6:15 I was in the prep room changed in my lovely gown that I would ware for the next 24 or so hours. lol
Talked with Dr. S's assistant she wanted to know what I knew about the surgery. She told me that I would be tilted a bit upside down so my organs would be out of the way for the surgery. (cool)
Than the anesthesiologist came in talked to me about allergies, what some of the effects of the anesthesia might have with feeling like sand in my eyes, my face would look swollen b/c of the angle I was at. I gave him a Tootsie roll pop and he liked that.
Dr. S came in to say hello and meet Jim told me what she was going to do and she didn't expect anything other than taking everything out. She gave me a little hug and a smile and off she went.
The anesthesiologist came in again asked if I was ready, gave my sweetheart a kiss and said I love you and the Dr. gave me the shot of happy juice in my IV and we went through one set of doors and two sets of doors and I didn't even get to see the di Vinci robot. I was OUT!
Next thing I know I was in the recovery room and a nurse talking to me and had a hard time waking up. Than she told me that they were taking me up to my room.
I ended up on the 3rd floor Maternity ward. That was SO NICE, and quiet up there. I finally woke up for a little bit about 1 ish to my sweet husband sitting there. He told me that he walked into the wrong room b/c there was a new mother nursing her baby. The receptionist gave him the wrong room #. I told Jim to go home about 2:30 and then went to sleep I ate a little lunch and fell back to sleep. lol
I woke up for dinner and was up until 10:15ish and when back to sleep till the nurse came to give me my meds every 4 hours.
I went for a walk with Barb the nurse about 4:00 and visited and welcomed the babies to the world. and than walked back and fell asleep for 2 hours. when she came back in to introduce me to my new day nurse.
Dr. S came in and told me what she found and how things went. Sh said she found some endometriosis once she got in there and it was quite a bit. She said that was all, no cancerous cells or anything else. She said that explained why I was in so much pain during my monthly. She said she didn't put me on the Estrogen patch b/c she didn't want the endometriosis to come back if there was any left that she missed. That was fine. I haven't had a flash or anything yet but to let her know if it was something I couldn't tolerate.
I needed a pain killer cause my pain was at a 6-7 so she gave me the stronger stuff but wasn't till after breakfast, a buffet they had down at the dining room down the hall. I was going to call him but I knew he was asleep which he needed..
I've peed a lot but haven't passed gas or had a BM (no wonder I'm empty)
Noon I left the castle with my "fixed" shirt and left the candy for the staff and told them thank you for all they do. They thought that was great that I thought of them. even the house keeping staff and wait staff that brought my meals.
I had one nurse Colleen come in to say good bye and wish me the best in my recovery.
It's 9:03 and I still haven't passed gas yet but was told to take a Gas-X so that's what I took.
I'm doing good so far and happy to be home w/ my hubby and puppy.
I love my belly pillow and i don't care how looks when i walk with it.
I happy to be on the other side and healing. Rest ladies and don't over do it. we only get one chance to heal.
