I Did It !!!!!

Hi to all my sista's....
I did it.... I cant believe I did it.
Just got home........... was at castle for 24 hours.

I was such a scared mess . so afraid of wakingup in pain......... and here is the honest truth........ when I woke up it felt like I had to go pee real bad...... that kind of pressure... about a number 3-4........ on the 1 -10 scale.

Just sore rest of day and today........ sore NOT pain.
Taking pain meds, but it really doesnt take away the soreness......but it might be doing somegood, and I will continue for awhile more.......... cuz the buzz is nice.. lol

I dont want to jinx things, but from my perspective, it was no big deal........... NOTHING like what I thought.
I do knoow it was major surgery and planon totally taking it easy............ I will do everythign right...

Cant wait to hear from all my other "date mates"..
xoxo DonaFay

Your support really helped me.

Welcome back

Thanks for posting such an upbeat report.

Good job. Go ahead and enjoy the pampering, though. You earned it!

p.s. How were the brownies?

Yay!! You're home! I just logged on taking a chance you'd be here, and you are!! So, so very happy to hear it!

Glad you plan on taking it easy! I go in tomorrow, had a couple of meltdowns today, but keep thinking in 24 hours the worst will be behind me--I hope.

Take care, rest up, and hopefully I'll be "talking" to you by the end of the week!

Not to worry I will take things very very slowly I want a smooth recovery... so what IF I get bored, I am staying put in bed.
YIPPIE.............. I made it to the other side.
LIW........ if any of you dont know, I was/am the biggest baby.. even my doctor somewhat mentioned it today..lol
I asked him... surely others were as scared as me, he said, Iam sure they were BUT none verbalized it as much... OH WELL!
The point I am saying is.......... I wish I could have believed ever so slightly that it was not this horrible barbaric thing I was going to experienc. Others told me , but I couldnt stop myself from my own mental pictures.

I doubt my words will really impact you either.......... boy IF only I could spare you some of the fears/anxiety you are feeling....

Thanks to all the ladies who supported me, I will do the same for others as well.

DonnaFay--You've made my day sweetie!

I'll be going off the computer in a few minutes, but will be back on as soon as I can. Maybe when the nurses are busy, I can sneak into their station and . . . .

Bless you!
