The sleep is going to be an issue..they are giving me the Soma, muscle relaxer at off hours. So one at mid day and the other at 4a. Well..that means at 11p, I'm wide awake. Its 3:30 and I cant sleep at all. But Soma will pay me a visit in 30 minutes so I'm hoping to catch some z's before the morning comes. I'm expecting guests, you see. :)
The rest of my day went pretty well. I finally got the eat and it wasnt all that bad (or I was starved..either or),
I requested a carrot cake from the cafeteria and a carrot cake is what my hunny bunny delivered. Plus some ice cream goodies. Love him.
Dr. Hunt came in to see me, and people, this doctor is a phenomenal surgeon. His bedside manner meets and exceeds protocol. He came in and spent nearly an hour with us in here. Didnt make me feel like he was rushing in doing rounds, like he was just popping in to make sure I was alive. He came in and took the time to really find out how I was doing. He chatted, told some surgery stories, told me how he went over my file again right before the surgery began and ran into some things he had missed and/or forgotton and just really knew that after that; this was definitely the right direction to go in. He is so compassionate about what he does. He carries a great sense of humor about him as well. One good package and I am going to try to hook my friend Kelly May up with him tomorrow!!! You hear that!!
Aside from him, the staff is remarkable, they come with the same upbeat care for their patients and I havent felt like I have bothered them one bit.
Chalk it up, Day 1 Night 1 success.

As for my pain, its being controlled around the clock with medication, but it kills. Its not numb. Its not like the meds take the pain away. I'd hate to see what I'd feel like if I didnt have any of these medications in me..yikes. Breathing and talking..all those fine things we dont even think of...still hurt to do. But I could def see a difference from 12 hours ago.
On to the next day.
