….and a Smooth Landing

Well, I made it through my 5th surgery with relative ease. Dr. Plastic did a lovely job (I think, because I won’t look at it yet) and was even so kind as to remove the drain before I left post-op.

They tweaked my anesthesia this time and loaded me with anti-nausea drugs so I would have an easier time coming out of it then I did in the past.  They probably tweaked it a little too much since I kind of woke-up in the operating room before they took the tube out (ick). They seemed a little surprised to see me open my eyes so soon.  

So I am home, recovering and doing nothing for 2 weeks like Dr. Plastic made me promise.  This morning it feels s little like an 18 wheeler was driven over my chest, but I have some nice pain-meds that should keep it bearable.  This time around I will take my meds and sit around….I promise.

    Thanks Sarah. BTW the photography on your blog is absolutely beautiful. I asked for a new camera for Christmas and your blog has inspired me to start using more photos in my blog. Thanks!
