Hi, everyone! Thank you for all of your sweet words, thoughts and prayers! I wanted to give you all an update as to what has happened:
I checked in to the hospital yesterday morning at 5:30am. When I was getting prepped for surgery, it took them three times to try to get my iv in my arm. It was awful. My surgery got underway at 7:30am and I was out of the OR by 8:30am. The cyst/tumor was a dermoid (contained human fibroids) and it was benign. It was the size of a large egg. They did not have to remove my ovary, which is wonderful!
I spent most of the day yesterday pushing my pain med button and trying to relax. Let me just tell you, you don't get much sleep in a hospital.Fred and my parents were sweet enough to stay with me all day. They brought me two McAlister's unsweet teas and the most delicious Frosty ever. Fred ended up staying the night with me. He's a great nurse!
This morning, they came and removed my catheter and made me walk. It was painful.
They brought me some solid food, but nothing tastes good. After I managed to eat a little, they told me that if I could hold down my pain meds for an hour that I could go home. That hour mark is fast approaching and I am ready to go home!
I finally found out my recovery time which will be four weeks. I can drive in about a week to two weeks. The next month should be hard, but I'll get through it. Thank you again for everything! Y'all are amazing. I feel so blessed!
Have a great weekend and hopefully I'll be back to the blogging world on Monday!
