Post Op Day 3...Yowzaa!

Jun 22, 2009

It has been three days since I had my surgery. Several things amaze me; that I am upright, that I am walking, and that I am cognizant of what is going on around me.

The surgery was not like anything I all. First of all, I am what you call a difficult intubation, and so I had an awake intubation. I do not remember that much of it, but I do remember some rather nasty throat numbing stuff. The next thing I know I am waking up in recovery.

I think I am doing okay. I am following directions and doing what I can to take things easy. My daughter and my husband are my greatest allies and we are making it work.

So now I will just work on more walking, more respirator breathing and taking it easy.

Until I feel better; it appears that the meds are starting to kick in...
