Home Sweet Home

Hi all, just a quick note to tell you I am home. The doctor tells us he was very pleased with the surgery, but we won't know for sure that I'm done with surgeries for another week. I did have some complications, though, with the anesthesia and it was not a pretty night. They couldn't waken me from surgery for hours and I was extremely nauseous. I got out of surgery about 12:30pm and they didn't take me to my room until almost 6:00pm because they couldn't wake me or get me to stop throwing up. Of course, Jason and everyone here were really worried, too. BUT, now I'm better, not nauseous, eating normally, and don't need any pain meds at all. I'm home with Rory and doing well. Resting, and wearing this weird drain, but much better.

THANK YOU for all the notes, text messages, phone messages, etc! I'll start catching up with everyone over the next few days.
