I made it through safely! ptl :) :)
Both kids cried when they left me to go to the OR, Danny was just sobbing :(
The Dr was late :( so it started late.
My surgery went well, but took longer than planned - 3 hours and I was intubated.
I woke up in the recovery room shaking so bad, my stomach muscles still hurt today.
My stomach was so swollen and full of gas it hurt.
We did not get home till 4 and had to pick up Danny on the way home.
My throat hurt so bad from the tube, I think that was almost worst than the hip pain.
The Dr told Dan that he got a lot of stuff out and thinks I am going to have a great result!!! woo hoo!!
Both kiddos did not want to leave my side so we all laid down on the bed and I napped while they watched tv. Both kept telling me how much they love me :)
Last night was really rough as I could not get comfortable. I nodded off several times, but woke up at 1:00 not able to catch my breath. I woke Dan up to tell I could not breathe and he had to help me sit up.
I ended up moving into the living room and laying down on the recliner. Once there my hip hurt less but my breathing was still heavy. Lexi slept right next to me the whole rest of the night.
I talked to both my Dr's office and the surgi center several times today and it seems the big problem was the air pushing up on my lungs. I drank some soda which helped me burp :) I am finally feeling so much better :)
I am so glad it is over and see the Dr Friday to have the big bandage removed and the stitches checked. Both kids have been so helpful :) Victoria thinks the crutches are a ladder :)
Thanks for everyone who prayed and send positive thoughts!!
