There’s no place like home.

Thank you everyone who left me good wishes, it was a rough couple of days and it made me smile when I read comments.

I am home from the hospital now.  Looking and feeling a little wild. Got home and realized that my abdomen is so swollen that I didn’t have any pants or shorts that I could wear! Luckily i found one old pair of scrub pants on my husbands shelf. 

The doctor did a radical hysterectomy plus a few extra stuffs.  Uterus, Fallopian tubes, ovaries, cervix, top of vagina and a whole bunch of lymph nodes. They think that they removed all cancer. Of course we’ll have to wait for biopsies to know for sure, but t looks promising. After they removed all my organs they laid them out and took a picture, and they gave me prints! how cool is that! If I ever get out of bed I’ll drop one on here on a post that gives a lot of warning so you know not to click on it unless you want to see it.

My family was wonderful. Someone was always with me except in the deep dark of night. My husband showed up by 7am and left at 10 pm, and he did lots of running around for me. He also gave me a shot. I’m on blood thinners for a week and they need to be administered via needle, so he’s going to do it. They showed him how and he did one today in the hospital.  I could not have done it. I am in awe.

Off to my Oxycodone & Valium.

I’m sure I’ll be around a lot since I can”t really walk for more than a minutes and I’m too drugged to do anything productive.
