I'm Back Home

Wow it's been a long week but I'm back home. Glad to say that this surgery is behind me and I'm really sore and really tired, but I'm glad to be back in my own bed. Can't drive for a couple weeks, and certainly no cleaning/lifting (lol that's where hubby comes in). Hubby gets to make Thanksgiving dinner this year, but thanks to the kids help he won't have to do it all like I usually do. I'll try to get to reading past messages during this week. Lifted something tonight and shouldn't have - now I'm paying the price - bummer. Guess it is out of habit and just wasn't thinking. Thanks for all your support during this past week. Glad to be back to the boards.

Hugs! Kim

I'm so glad to hear that not only are you home and doing well but that you're well enough for an occasional "Oops!" and do something that you shouldn't have done! Rest well and enjoy a bit of well earned pampering and I'll say a little prayer that your husband is a good cook!

So happpy your home and this is behind you now. It's so easy to forget and lift something you should not!!! You have to hammer this in your head for the next little while!!! Ya don't want a hernia and have to go through surgery for a fix!!! I know it's hard but let someone else do the grocery shopping for the next long while!!!

Dear Kim, so glad that you are home. It is easy to forget the "rules" when you are feeling better, but do try to let the question come to mind before you push, pull or lift anything. We sure don't want you to have any complications.

Just sit back and let those who love you pamper you and do for you for a while.

Wishing you speedy and uneventful recovery.

Hugs,

Marie who loves kitties

Hi, Haven't been on here for a long time. Don't know exactly what you had surgery for, went back to find old post and one said something about scar tissue. Sorry you had to have surgery and hope you are feeling better, Thank you for taking the time to answer me when I had questions. I will get on more often and check to see how your doing. Best Wishes, Kathy

having just watched the Wizard of Oz I would say that those of us have to spend time in the hospital, especially around the holidays, would totally agree with the sentiment that there's no place like home! Ann Alexandria
