I'm home!

Hello everyone! Thank you for your prayers and well wishes. I feel every single solitary stitch since it turned into a 7 hr operation. I stay in bed most of the time. I do get up and walk every hour to make sure I don't get blood clots.

I fought to come home the next day, not remembering that I wouldn't have a morphine IV with me...ouch.
Feeling stronger every day but I am not allowed to bend, reach, twist or lift any thing for 6 weeks. Then I have to take care until about April. Can't drive for 2 months.

Thank you again for all your prayes, calls and emails!

xoxo Jan

Glad you're home and it sounds as though you are, too. I've found that even when recovering, it's nicer when one can recover in their own bed amidst their own familiar surroundings.

Just take care of yourself and, as ordered, take it easy.

Jan I'm so glad you're home and ok. Geeze 7 hours! I'm glad everything went well! Just think, what a perfect time of year for this. You can snuggle up inside and stay warm and cozy while the rest of us have to freeze our rears off - and by the time Spring comes you'll be ready!

Take very good care, mind the doctor - and your body (it will tell you when you've done too much).

Lol, Sharon, it's 70 here and I'm missing a beautiful day.

I get tired so quickly so I usually walk to my office and then go back to bed.

I'm minding the doc...I don't want this to happen again.
