I know that I won't be going to their rooms to tuck them in even if I am home but at least they can come to me...

Actually waiting for a call from the office to make sure I am still on for thurs. since even with the antibiotic I have been on I am still congested. Hoping it is still a go.
Wow would be interested in how you are doing now. i read that and was amazed. My surgery was on feb 14. I feel like my head has alot of ideas of what i could be doing but my body is definately striking. Are you now brining your kids to bed?

Are you experiencing any of that?

Re: Anyone come home the same day?

I went in for surgery at about 10am and I was released at about 2:30pm on the same day. I was given an epidermal so was pretty numb from the waist down when I woke up and then it seemed like forever before I could pee, but once I got home and got in bed I relaxed and then I couldn't stop peeing!! :-)
The hard part is when you wake up later that evening or the next morning and actually feel everything. My doctor said he wanted me to soak in the tub at least an hour a day for the first 3 weeks...which has helped me tremendously--especially the day after...but all doctors have different perspectives on bathing so find out what your doctors recommendations are.
Definitely stay ahead of the pain with your medication, my hubby took care of tracking that for me and it really helped. Good luck to you!!! :-)
