I’m home. Got home around 6pm last night. Very nice to be here surrounded by the familiar sounds of Luke and Aaron running around and Ada’s paws. Much better than the beeps, pages and interruptions from tons of lab people, doctors and nurses.
Yesterday was kind of difficult. Not from the incisions but from gas pains. My GI tract hadn’t really woken up (I only passed gas 2 or 3 times before leaving the hospital). Then to make matters worse, I forgot to take the pain meds before we got in the car to drive home.
It was rush hour, dark and rainy and I was having massive gas pains. Needless to say, it was a long ride! It’s amazing how bumpy I-5 is. Who knew?!?
After getting home, things started to get much better. Took some Tylenol, used the bathroom and went to bed. The kids were really gentle and Suzi was awesome. Couldn’t ask for more!
This morning, I’ve done about 10 laps around the house, had a light breakfast, showered and plan on going back to bed. Doesn’t sound like much but even this little amount of exertion really take a lot out of me.
Hope this finds you well! All the emails, FB posts, calls and visits have been so wonderful. God bless!
