So Far, So -So Good

I am alive and doing well-or as well as can be expected- at home, thank Goddess. And all of you. I truly felt surrounded by light as I went into surgery, and I am profoundly grateful. The hospital experience was not an easy one, but I got down right demanding, and eventually got the pain under contril. At one point, my drain moved, causing pain to rise to a level 9. and while the nursing staff tried to pacify me, I called Rene collect and told her to call the doctor's office. He arrived within 15 minutes! Empowerment!

Being home is a real blessing, although it's still and hour by hour struggle to get water down, to get my meds in, to keep pain at bay. I am not sleeping for more than an hour or so at a time, but my own bed, and my recliner, are wonderful.

Will try to write more tomorrow. And thank you all so much, again.

Blessings, Margo

Oh, I am so happy you are back at home. Nothing feels quite as good as being in your own bed or recliner.  Now, let the healing begin.   Anne

Welcome Home.  Healing is much better when done at home.  Take care of yourself and listen to Rene.  :-)

I send you light, prayers and may your new mindset speed you through the rest of your recovery.

I do SO relate when you talk about long term chronic pain ANDI PRAY FOR A SPEEDY VICTORY OVER THE WORST PAIN, AND A RETURN TO MANAGING, HANDLING ALL FUTURE PAIN.

I hold you in my thoughts and prayers!  All good things!

Thankfully home is a comfortable place and hopefully this will be the beginning to a very deserved recovery of all the past pains.
