I pretty much feel like I just had a baby (I look like I did, too). They ended up doing a scope-assisted hysterectomy which means they filled my insides up with air - there is pretty much only one way for all that air to escape, and I assure you there is nothing lady-like about it.
They also gave me a spinal block with morphine in it. Holy Toledo does that stuff make you itchy! It's also extremely effective, and I can tell you exactly when it wore off.
I woke up this morning somewheres around 2 AM because my bladder was crying uncle, when wham! out of nowhere I was hit with the headache of all headaches. It subsides when I'm laying down, so I'm betting it has something to do with the spinal block.
My fingers and toes and everything are full of fluid, to the tune of about 8 lbs, but I don't dare take any diuretics for another week or so since my bladder is already maxed out. I totally look/feel like the Michelin Tire dude.
We celebrated Christmas with the family three days early, just in case my hospital stay ended up going longer than expected. Mr. O scored a great deal on a competition-grade Foosball table for the family. It's been a big success, and Ty loves listening to the sound of the ball being hit. Mr. O also spoiled me rotten and gifted me a MacBook Pro.
Reading over this, it's all very disjointed - let's blame the pain meds, shall we?
What was your favorite Christmas gift you received/gave?
P.S. Mr. O brought by a surprise package from Radioactive Girl - beautiful hand-dyed yarn and the cutest cupcake cookbook. It made my day. I love thoughtful people. I am already dreaming up some projects for this yarn. Thank you, Tori!
