Lots to say..

Just wanted to say a few words of thanks and more....

I had to have surgery on Friday, a hysterectomy due to cysts and fibroids. I still have one ovary left so I was not forced into menopause, glad for that.

My doctor is Carla Turner, she is so nice and did an amazing job in getting me into surgery ASAP as I had suffered so long. Thank you Dr. Turner.

I need to thank all the staff and nurses at spring valley hospital here in Las Vegas. Everyone was so caring and nice to me. I have to apologize for getting sick on one nurse who was trying to get the anti nausea medicine in my IV  but was just not quick enough! And the post op nurse who I grabbed by the shirt and tried to drag through my bed rails when I was coming out of anesthesia and couldn't breathe. They had to put me back to sleep and start over slowly. But it happens. You never know how your body will react but they were quick to help!

Thank you to The nurse who took care of me my first night she was so sweet. She really cared and checked on me to make sure my nausea was under control. The nurse who took my blood who liked to talk tattoos with me! Everyone so cheerful and kind. The last nurse who didn't want to discharge me cause Charlie and I made her laugh and she was worried her next patient wouldn't be so fun!

Thank you to all my family and friends who sent food, flowers, get well wishes and more, thank you, thank you!!!

I am up walking around feeling really good. I have not had to take one single heavy duty pain pill just the ibuprofen one in morning one at night!! So amazed. I just have a sore tummy from being poked and prodded and gassed up, it stretches your tummy muscles terribly, takes time for that to go down. But as this is only day 3 1/2, I am doing amazing!!!!

Last of all, I want to thank my husband who takes care of me and all my goofy demands on him. I had him cleaning and organizing my hospital room, yep, OCD from my hospital bed!
He bought me a Keurig coffee maker so I could make coffee one cup at a time from my bed. I did not need to have it near my bed as I am pretty mobile! But the thought was so great of him!!
He works so hard to pay for all I need and want, I wish he could win the lottery so he could get spoiled for once! But knowing him he would spend it on everyone else. My rock, my love, my knight in shining armor. Thank you honey bunny, I love you more than you will ever know!!

Oh last thought today.. Happy birthday to my Travis Carl who turns 30 today!! Hope you enjoy your day!!!

I am so glad you came through it with flying colors, Chica - I was sad they didn't give you something for those nerves that morning, before they wheeled you away, but you did great. And I'm hoping Charlie takes you back to the cafeteria for lunch one day - have the sausage and a biscuit - delicious! :-) Here's to a HEALTHY new year...Happy Christmas Eve - XOXOXO

Charlie is an angel. He kept me posted and didn't mind my constant requests for updates. I'm so glad you're doing so well. I think I can probably stop worrying now! Love you!! Merry Christmas!!

I wanted to send pictures to Mary and Christy, but Charlie wouldn't - he IS an angel. ;-)
