    Almost Time for Surgery

    http://www.disneyworldtrivia.com/for...ns-cancer.html

    Surgery is this Thursday so wanted to put a thread out here to just let everyone know that I'll be away for at least few days. Soon as I can though I'll have my laptop in bed with me so I can pop on to tell everyone that I'm ok etc. etc. Thanks to everyone for the prayers and pixie dust you've sent thus far. I appreciate it bunches and bunches! I love my DWT family!!!

    Surgery went well. I was brought into the operating room just about 9:00am Thursday morning and after taking a few deep breaths I was out. As it should be, the next thing I remember was waking up in recovery and asking to see my husband over and over. Apparently though, even though the woman next to me in recovery had her entire family with her, mine wasn't allowed to see me until I was in my room. I can only assume she had outpatient surgery and was leaving from recovery and that's why (??). Anyway... I was finally brought to my room a little after noon and got to see Bill and my father. I tried to eat lunch a few minutes later (just clear liquids) and what little I had made me sick to my stomach so.... a dose of phenagrin into my IV later... I was out again until about 4:00ish. By then Bill was tired of being in the hospital and wanted to go home. My plan was to call my dad to come get me around 8:00ish but a dose of pain killers later.... it was midnight and obviously way too late for that. So, long story short (too late), I spent the night in the hospital and got released about 9:00am yesterday.

    I'm doing very well. I have a little soreness which is to be expected (duh) and I tire pretty quickly but other than that things are fine and dandy. The only real "side effect" I'm having is risidual from the tubes down my throat... I can't speak much at all. When I do have a voice the volume isn't much above a whisper... something I think Bill is rather enjoying (the smartass). They tell me that the nerves were fine in my throat however and that it is truly only a temporary thing from my breathing tube so I should be back to my loud mouth self within a few more days.

    I just returned from heading out to Toys R Us with my father to get Aaron's Christmas shopping done which was fun. We then went to Sonic for lunch and I actually managed to whisper loud enough for the girl inside that little speaker to hear me... Woot!! I was going to continue on with the shopping fun with dad but suddenly about half way home I started to feel a bit of pain and decided my body was telling me to get home, take some more Lortabs and rest. So... that's what I'm doing. Well... sort of... I'm standing in my kitchen to type this but I did take the Lortabs. LOL!

    So... thank you all again for your well wishes, thoughts and prayers! It looks like I'm on my way to a good and quick recovery and will be back to my normal self very soon. I'm not back to work until the 18th so I'm going to take this time to rest and get some things done around the house that I've been wanting to do. That and... the only thing holding this hole in my neck shut are some little pieces of tape (no stitches) so until they've been removed and I know I'm back together... I'll be taking it easy!
