It’s over but just beginning
June 19, 2009 10 Comments
The surgery went perfectly. Because we don’t take blood transfusions, the doctor was extra careful and really took his time, which means a 4 hour surgery actually took closer to 6 1/2, but hey, whatever works! He said it couldn’t have gone any better. The cancer hadn’t spread so they were able to remove it.
But now the recovery…a week’s stay in the hospital and then home again. The hospital will be fine. It’s not that part that worries me, but the once she gets home part. She always overdoes everything and I don’t want her to exhaust herself. We will probably spend a lot of time up there helping out.
So this weekend will be spent in the hospital, I’m sure, but when family needs your support you go do what you can do, and that’s what we can do.
I’m exhausted but, contrary to what my one lone reader just commented, I AM EATING and even trying to sleep. I did slip up, of course, but I recovered.
Okay, I’m going to go throw some laundry in and go to sleep, more, and happier, posts coming soon!
