I'm home and doing well

I'm home from the castle. My TAH Surgery was Monday May 13th and I came home Wednesday May 15th. I was feeling good and walking the halls 11:30 pm Tuesday night ready to come home. I had no naseua from anestesia at all. This was a first. I can not believe how good I feel (although getting tired very easy). I am just really taking it easy.

Thanks to all of the sisters for the well wishes, and all of the information available before I went in.

I want to mention one thing. I was feeling okay about the surgery up until a few days before (I had read a lot of posts about all of a sudden being anxious - and now it was happening to me). I didn't post because of what I was feeling. This was definately not my first surgery (Lap Endo 1993, Emergency C-Section 1994, Lap scare tissue 1995, C-section 1997, Lap Gallbladder 1997 (1 month after C-section) Gastric Bypass 1998). But I had the strongest feeling that I would not make it. The feeling was so intense. I definately felt I could not tell anyone, as that would be unfair to them. When my parents and sister asked if I wanted them to come up (they would only be able to stay until I made it through the surgery and then have to go back home - due to my sisters prior work obligations) I jumped at the idea of being able to see them, even if it was an inconvenience for them to be here (they would never think of it as an inconvenience I'm sure). I made sure we got together with our friends (a group of 3 other couples, and their families who are the best) for a barbeque, etc. etc. I was trying to talk myself into how it would be okay, my DD (age 21) has turned into a great young women, and my DD (age 4) has so much devotion from my DH..., and I would be with our DS in heaven) I still cannot believe how intense the feeling was. Wow - when I woke up and was still here I was amazed and very happy. I only say this as I'm not sure if anyone else goes through this, and certainly I didn't know the outcome - even if I truely believed I did.

What a difference. After we lost our DS on x-mas 1994 (at 4 days after 9 years of trying), and I had surgery in 1995, I was so incredibly mad when I woke from surgery - that was not my plan, I wanted to be with my DS. But I am so incredibly happy to still be here now.

Thanks again, this is the best site ever.
