Surgery Yesterday

...and I'm ready to go home. :)

Surprisingly I'm not really in pain, just a little achy in my back and ribs. (Hopefully that won't change when I'm off the morphine.) I have a bit of discomfort in my shoulders from the gas, I'm sure. I guess the only thing I can gripe about is how weak I am. It'll pass. :)

My surgery was almost 5 hours!! Apparently I had a small hiatal hernia that had to be repaired. I had no idea. At least it was small.

I had my first ice chips about 30 minutes ago and they were like a taste of heaven. haha. I can't wait to brush my teeth and shower. If everything goes well, I'll be going home tomorrow evening. Not looking forward to the 5 hour ride home...but I think it will be okay.

Anyway, just wanted to say hi and hope everyone is doing well. :)

Congrats on your surgery.  I was just wondering if they charged you extra for the hernia repair?  What doctor did you go to?
