Back by popular demand

Thanks for all the prayers and positive wishes!

My caregivers are doing a great job taking care of me!

Last night I wasn't feeling very good and ended up passing out in the bathroom. Thankfully Josh was there and caught me as I went down. I still wasn't feel well and thought I was going to pass out again so Josh called 911 and they gave me an escort to the ER. As soon as they pulled up to our house one of the neighbors came over and got the girls and then while they were wheeling me out another said she would keep the girls overnight so Josh didn't have to worry about getting home quickly. They ran a bunch of tests and changed my bandages and everything looked ok so after talking to the surgeon they let me go home and I have to go in Monday morning.

I have three drains and was emptying them when I passed out so it seems like some think that I passed out from that, or I was a little dehydrated, my low blood pressure, or I just overdid it.

Regardless though everything looks good now and I am feeling better.

Josh helped me take a shower this morning. It was my first one since the surgery.

Oh. My. Goodness.

It was heavenly!!!

I feel like a normal person again, well as normal as one can feel with three drains hanging from me and an incision that goes half way around my body.
