Surgery News

My tumor was benign as I had believed it would be.  I got to come home the day of my surgery which made me happy.  Despite two types of meds to keep me from vomiting, no one told my tummy and I vomited three times which hurt like the blue blazes!  That night I also got an allergy attack and a violent coughing spell caused some minor bleeding but I am fine.  I tried sleeping in the bed Friday night but my flip flopping caused bleeding and so I am out in Jack's recliner again!  It is a huge thing and you can stretch out flat if you want so it works.  Sylvia played nurse Thursday and Friday night sleeping with me. I have not needed pain meds since Saturday morning early which suits me and today I have even managed to stitch some so maybe a stitchy post will be coming soon.  I go to see the doctor Friday and I expect good news.  I do have some numbness on my chin and neck but I don't know if that is normal or not.  Oh well.  Here are a couple pictures for you.  Me not looking so red hot with my rosecea flaring up this morning.
 And here is my faithful nurse.


My beloved Jackster has been so awesome and taken such good care of me.  Don't know what I would do without him!  Blessings and huggles.

Praise God it was benign! I'm convinced animals have an ability to know when we need them - my cat does the same if I'm sick or even when I'm sad. What a blessing to have Jack and Sylvia!!! Praying you heal quickly and get good news at your check up. Rest and take it easy!
