After surgery

I'm not the biggest fan of WKP, but it is what it is. Thankfully, I'm out and was able to keep both of my ovaries. I arrived at the hospital at 10:30, but they didn't get me till 5 or 5:30 PM. I can understand that things happen during surgeries that are not expected or planned for, I just think communication could be improved, and some compassion. Basically, it felt like I had been forgotten about in the pre-op room. I had an excrutiating headache from not having eaten since Tuesday lunch! Finally, they gave me some caffeine for the headache, and for those of you who know me, I don't do caffeine. People around me don't need me to have caffeine. At any rate, that's how things started and didn't get much better for my family. But like I said, that part is over and now on to recovery. I get to have my staples removed on Wednesday. WOOHOO! I don't know why people voluntarily go under the knife to have enhancements done. I handle pain well, and this isn't exactly pleasant. I had teased that I was going to have the doctor add some abs for me, but it was truly just a tease. I'm not really sure how this is possible, but I think my bellybutton looks different. It looks flatter. Yes, I know how goofy that sounds, but it does.

Well, I'm ready for a little siesta.
