First of all, thank you so much for all your good wishes. I really appreciate them! The KOARC (who has taken extremely good care of me) read all the blog comments and emails to me until I was able to sit a bit more comfortably at the computer and read ‘em myself.
So . . . it’s Thursday already, huh? It’s been a strange week.
I was here at 6:00 Monday morning:
The KOARC thoughtfully took some photos, in case I wanted them for blog fodder. I don’t have much else to talk about, so today this is a medical blog. Here’s the back of my head in pre-op.
It was all over and I was back home before 11:00 a.m. It’s kind of surreal that you can have surgery, complete with general anesthesia, and be discharged the same day but I’m glad they do it that way — I’d much rather recover at home than in a hospital.
I was very impressed with the facility — Reston Surgery Center. All the people I came in contact with there were extraordinarily kind and efficient.
And I am cautiously optimistic about the outcome of this surgery — I do think it will fix my back issues.
My mom and dad came over that afternoon and my mom brought food to stock my fridge so we wouldn’t have to worry about preparing meals.
Here’s Lucy, happily ensconced in my dad’s lap.
And I’ve done a bit of knitting.
The yarn is Fiesta Baby Boom in the “Dreamsicle” colorway, purchased at The Loopy Ewe. The pattern is a re-do of the Lacy Rib pattern I worked up during the Summer of Socks. I adjusted it slightly because I wasn’t completely happy with it. Now I am. Completely happy with it.
Okay, I think that’s all for now. I can only stay at the computer for short periods, so it’s time for me to quit. But first take a look at this:
That’s a card I got yesterday from Reston Surgery Center signed by all the people I came in contact with there on Monday. Pretty nice, huh?
And just because it’s so darn cute, a card L-B sent with a “care package” for me.
And thanks again for the comments, emails and cards I’ve received. I really appreciate them all.
Being a nurse is hard work!
