I'm Done!

The last time I felt so alone, was when I got lost in Korea.

Surgery was scheduled for the 11th of this month. I kept it to myself, because I didn’t want to bother any of my beloved friends anymore. I wore warm jogging pants and matching little jacket with a hood over my head. A taxi had me at the hospital by 5 AM. I paid him and told him to leave. I shoved my cold hands in my empty pockets and walked in, then took the elevator to the 2nd floor. Never had I felt so vulnerable and so sorry for myself. I thought I was the only soul on earth, because I never saw anyone until I reached the admitting desk. I was told to follow the little palm tree tiles on the floor.

Again, I was given a little sheet like gown with the back opened. The anesthesiologist came in and stuck my arm with an IV. Last time, it had been on the top of my hand. What a strange looking man he was. He had spooky dark eyes. He put his face inches away from my face (I had no choice but to cross my eyes) then grabbed it and roughly pried my mouth wide open and looked inside and told me to stick out my tongue! What the hell!

My new doctor came in and held my hand and patted it. He told me everything was going to be okay. What an angel! I closed my eyes, and when I opened them, I was in the recovery room. What a strange feeling. The anesthesiologist was there. I told him I was in PAIN! He tinkered with the IV and told me he was going to give me a little morphine. Pain was instantly gone, and so was I. :o)

I asked the nurse to call home and tell Grandpa I would be coming home soon, and to unlock the gate. I then asked the nurse to call a taxi. I was wheeled out in a wheel chair, and I was soon home again, in the loving PAWS of my babies!

I’ve been asleep for most of the day and night since Tuesday. I’m starting to feel like I’ve got the whole world in my hands again, so much so, that I’m starting to feel naughty again! HEEHAW!

I still have to get the results, but I KNOW everything will come out fine.

Have you kids been penny pinching...er... as FRUGAL as me?! :o)

It really went well, Sweet Pie! Keep sending those Savanah-healing vibes, 'cuz they make me feel better by the minute!

Wow. I don't even know what to say because I'm not even sure what's wrong with you, really. I just hope that the best thing that could possibly happen happens, and you come back to us, naughtier than ever

I had an itty bitty tumor in my lower right abdomen, but now the stinker's out. :o)

I want to bake some bread! Bread, the staff of life!

Penny pinching assumes I have a penny to pinch.

I'm glad to hear this experience was the opposite of the other visit. Hope you're back to 100% soon.

Ayi! Penny Pinching. I have a feeling we're all going to be pinching pennies 'til they yell OUCH!

Oh yes, this was a totally different experience from the last time. What a difference a good compassionate doctor can make.

Thank you Sweet Pie, I'm seriously starting to feel so much better.
Nov. 14th, 2008 10:42 pm (UTC)
I am glad that this experience was so much better!
Nov. 15th, 2008 02:49 am (UTC)
I can almost say this experience was a joy, in comparison to the last time with that awful doctor.

Thank you!

So glad to hear your surgery went well. Will keep you in my thoughts.

I'll be seeing this doctor in about a week. I'm seriously going to give him a hug for treating me in such a humane manner. I think about the other one, and I get very angry!

Thank you Sweet Pie!

I'm so glad it's over. I'm sure the rest will turn out just fine, too.

Thank you Sweet Pie!

I hope my surgery goes as well as yours... I had an injection today of antibiotics, the Dr also said I had a tabletop detatchment of my lens and it should be even easier to fix than he first thought. he also said that if I do need an airbubble I will only need to be face down for 5 days NOT weeks till it heals... such relief..

Then I had to go buy antibiotic eye drops Geeeeeez $55.00 for a 3ml bottle. I was not expecting that.

well Glad you are home and doing well.
Prayers are answered!
Nov. 15th, 2008 03:00 am (UTC)
Wow! 55 bucks for an itty bitty bottle of eye drops?! Somebody sure is getting rich, huh?

I will continue keeping you in my prayers as you kept me in yours. Faith is everything, and I have faith all will come up wonderfully for you!

I'm glad the operation went well and look forward to your results. Take good care of yourself and keep us posted. Lots of hugs.

Thank you Sweet Pie! Everything is fine now, thank God!

So many hugs to you!

I'm glad you're home and doing better. Also glad this sounds like a much better experience than your last trip.
Dec. 5th, 2008 11:56 pm (UTC)
What a difference a good, carrying, compasionate doctor makes! I'll never forget the other creep for as long as I live.

Ah, the two day crash that comes from general anesthesia. So wonderful when THAT wears off.
Dec. 5th, 2008 11:55 pm (UTC)
It took me over a week to get over that awful anesthesia thing. I blame it all on Eve!!
Nov. 15th, 2008 07:09 am (UTC)

get well soon.
Dec. 5th, 2008 11:53 pm (UTC)
