Just wanted to let my girls know that I came home yesterday from the hospital. I was able to take Darvocet for the pain along with Valium. So the pain is controlled. They told me I could have stayed if I wanted to. But I thought, if I'm handling the pain with oral meds and everything looks good why shouldn't I go home? At least there I'm not woken up every 2 hours for my vitals to be checked, and I can got some good tasting food :) I feel well rested but still have pain. I just wanted to let you's know that I'm alive and kicking and will post more later this week. When I take the pain pills they knock me out.

Thanks to everyone for the thoughts and prayers, I really appreciate them. I love each and everyone of you.


Love,
Sherry

    Nothing like the familiarity of your own surroundings to be some of the best medicine. Find your compfy place and let your body and mind heal! no rushing anything....

    I thought the same thing
    I thought the same thing about getting home as soon as I could. But the hospital I went to had cardboard eggs for breakfast and I'm not picky. I couldn't believe I finally found something I didn't like! Glad you are doing fine.

    Warm welcome home, Sherry
    Glad to know your surgery went well, and that the pain meds are doing their job. Your surgery was a great big first step along your journey - it's good to have it behind you now.

    "The Wizard of Oz" is my favorite movie of all time. So, I can totally relate to how you feel, because...

    There's no place like home.

    Take good care of yourself. Lots of rest will aid in healing. Best wishes for a speedy recovery, without complications.

    Kind regards, Susan

    Welcome home :)
    If you need tips on resting up, I am the go to person!! I have even thought out my future plans on milking it!! Heck, I plan on getting taken care of for a long, long time.....I'm loving the attention!! Besides, My family already expects I will attempt this and have resorted to planning on it anyway (he, he). Glad your back home. :) Pammy

    I don't think I would EVER have recovered in hospital. No Peace, Rest, Decent food, Internet, Ciggies or Beer! How is anyone supposed to get better under those sort of circumstances? LOL

    Hi Sherry,
    I am so glad that you feel good enough to go home. Yeah!!I am doing my happy chair dance with my hot, pink, feather boa. I hope you feel better with every day that goes by. The hospital is a terrible place to try to get any rest. You are still in my thoughts and prayers.
