My Bloody Belly Button

Hi all, I didn't expect to be writing this myself but I creeped my way incredibly slowly over to the computer so that I don't get a bed sore on my hiney from sitting so much. Plus, my bladder is a little dazed from the catheter so I'm trying to go frequently. Surgery went well today- no unexpected findings and Dr.Haas felt good about it. My infertility doc, anesthesiologist and nurses were so incredible today that it was a smooth and stress-free process. Dr. Haas even held my hand and comforted me while I was put to sleep. Very kind!

I'm doing both better and worse than I expected. I'm worse in the fact that my belly hurts more than I thought it would, but I'm better in that I have been pretty alert all day. Which has been great since we've had company all day and you all know how I love to socialize. I woke up quickly in recovery and started talking the nurse's ear off. Aaron and my "surgery crew" knew I was okay when they let them see me because they could already hear me talking and I was eating like crazy. One of the surgeons I work with came to see me in recovery as did the OB/GYN that works at my clinic. (He's the one I will use if I ever manage to get pregnant.)

I want to say a HUGE thanks to my mom, Aaron, Emily, Cayden and Sarah who gave me the best support ever today at the hospital. You all made it so much easier on me! Also, thanks to Vicki who took a break from saving lives one broken bone at a time to bring me flowers. Lastly, thanks to all of you who called me or texted me today to let me know you care. It truly touches my heart and I hope I get the chance to show you all the kindness you have shown me.

Tomorrow the wound care starts on my 3 incision sites and I have to start my meds and temperature taking again. Back on the trying-to-conceive bandwagon. I'll keep you all posted!!! Pray for Aaron as he has to put up with me over the next few days of recovery.
