Thank you all for your prayers and well wishes. I believe I am going home today. I've been a bit silent still, but recovery is taking a bit out of me. I'll get there.
Next day after surgery I had heart problems, not sure what they were, I was kind of out of it, they did an EKG, compared it to original EKG and about all I could get out of it was there were abnormalities and they were keeping an eye on it. I'll have to ask more in depth later. Also, almost went the pneumonia route which is now cleared up, and then find out I have "diminished" breathing, which I'll have to find out more about as well. The respiratory treatments they've given me every four hours has helped alot.
I should be heading home in a few hours.
Thinking of you all, and grateful that you are also my family.
Winter Marie

    Thanks for the update and for letting us know you are coming home. You will heal so much faster there. Glad that your breathing issues are better and agree that you need to find out more about that. Lung issues can be a problem after surgeries, guess that is why they give you that thing to blow into. Take care of yourself first and don't worry about us, but if you get a chance or feel up to it let us know how you are feeling.

    Hugs! Kim

    Take care
    Hi Winter Marie,
    It's really a good news. Wish you recover soon!

    p.s. In our culture, drink fish soup (fish, potato, tomato, carrot, ginger - boil for 1 hour) helps the healing after surgery.

    Don't rush
    Sounds like you have had a few 'unexpecteds' pop up, but am glad the surgery is over and you are on the mend enough to get home.

    Hope you are able to get the info you need on the heart and breathing issues before you leave the hospital.

    Take care and take it easy at home.

    Hugs,

    I can't believe you are going home so soon!
    Winter Marie,

    It is hard to believe you are going home already! You must be doing very well overall. I am sorry for the issues that have popped up. I hope you are home now, nice + cosy!

    Great News
    Going home is always a blessing and I know for me I recovered allot quicker in my own bed. Those breathing treatments are nice especially when the therapist gave me a little message which was a bonus. A least you will be home with family for the new year...

    Home sweet home
    Hope you are home and settled in now. So happy for you and like everyone has said, you will feel better just mentally being at home. UNLESS you have a ton of cleaning, laundry and picking up to do. lol, just kidding.

    I am thinking of you and will say prayers for a speedy and uneventtul recovery Winter Marie. Many hugs, Joyce

    now you can go home and get some rest
    Hi,

    Thanks for the update- very glad to hear you're going home today. It's so impossible to rest well in the hospital, so hopefully you can go home and get some needed rest to continue to heal and get well. Hopefully you have someone who will be carefully watching over you for any red flags for any issues. Hopefully, there will be none and all will be well. What a rough week and Christmas for you-

    Many hugs to you and I'm praying for you-

    Hi, Winter Marie!

    I'm so glad you're going to be at home now. So much better than the "Big House." I hope you'll be able to get some good answers about the heart and breathing issues.

    Take it easy and let us know how you are.

    *hugs*
