I’m going to heed Pam’s advice and not write too much….but I wanted to thank everyone for praying. Everything went really well. I am not in too much pain but I keep up on the pain meds. I did have a little allergic reaction last night and was itchy all over so we had to switch meds but am doing fine now. It wasn’t very fun to be itchy when your arms hurt!
I felt a huge amount of relief and peace when I woke up after surgery. I know I made the right decision….it’s the anticipation that can really be difficult.
Here’s another nice thing….I knew my anesthesiologist! We were in youth group together in high school! I had no idea he was a doctor. The first thing I thought was….crud…he’s going to see my breasts! Then I thought….oh well….I’m not keeping them so it doesn’t matter….lol! I found it very comforting to know the person that would hold my life on the line and wake me up when it was all over. I think a few of you know Dr. Zack Kirwin. There are several nurses here from my church as well so it’s been nice to have familiar faces around.
I’ll be good and not write too much. Thanks for your words of encouragement and your prayers and good thoughts.
Love you all!
