48 hours post op in Arizona

I am home from the castle exactly 48 hours from surgery and DH is already showing signs of stress.

My stay inside the castle was nice. I had a morphine drip for the first 24 hours, changed to percecet for the last 24 hours.

Doctor said my uterus was in good condition but my extremely heavy mensus prooved the need.

I am happy for my decision despite the swelly belly afterwards. We took my back brace and lowered it around my hips for support. Couldn't afford the belly band and my boobuster pillow has been wonderful. It's cloth (I took extra fabric and lace from my wedding dress) sewn into a pocket, with five cups of rice (The bag is ~8"x10", and it's 1 inch deep, and weighs about a pound. Adjust to your taste, keeping in mind it's going on somewhere very sore) so it can freeze and heat (in the microwave, be careful.) and does a decent weight against my cramps.

Doctor said one other thing. That having all this done could stop my problematic constant bladder infections.

I curled up in my bed, my crown set aside for now and my babies (cats) are all around me.

I will write again soon, DH is doing dictation for the moment.

With love

I was at the tmc castle. I work there in the psych hospital and was afraid they were going to take me there afterwards.

All and all a good stay I was there for five days because of my body not cooperating, internal bleeding, fever and high heart rate and bp.

Happy to have tucson sisters!!!!

DH how you holding up? mine was amazing slept in the hospital every night.

I am in Tucson too, St. Joes soooooo glad to be home!!! I am 7 days out but it is still rough going, Each day gets better, morning is the worst, evenings are great especially with this wonderful weather, we are opening up all the doors and windows and loving it! Boyfriend is home with my full time (who knew he would be laid off at just the right time!) so I am thankful, going on my first outing to the store in a minute, using a wheelchair so we will see.
