but, everything couldn't have gone any better, really.

it was a total clusterfuck - aside from the surgery itself - and i love my surgeon, but the rest of my experience at the hospital was fucking ridiculous and painful. the nurses were horrible and mean. their response time was unreal. i have never in my life had such a bad experience.

the good news is i'm fine. i'm healthy. the surgery was top notch and i'm now home.

awaiting my Darvon for pain and watching my 6 incisions heal. :)

thanks to all of you for your support and encouragement along the way.

it means more than you know.

Glad you're home.

Thanks for having the hubster call us. It meant a lot to me. It was far too late to call back.

Now. You get well and YOU GO GIRL!

I'm sorry that your hospital experience wasn't a good one, but I'm so glad that the surgery went well and you're on the mend. Keep taking your Darvon and get better soon.

Boooo for the hospital! Yae for you! Now, walk in to get the Darvon yourself! Get moving! (That was said in such a nice, positive, supportive way!!!)

thanks all! yep, i'm walking as much as possible, doing my deep breathing exercises as well as ankle pumps etc. so i don't get any nasty clots etc. as well, i get to take a shower today (hallelujia!) and i've been getting my meds, water, popsicles, jello etc. all by myself. i even slept a bit on my side last night - which was huge. i've never been a sleeper on my back.

anyway - thanks for all the well wishes, it helped make everything go smoothly on my end, i'm certain of it.

and BHD - i had NO idea that H called you guys! that is so cool!! when you get a chance, let me know what he said. that was really nice to do that. :)

hope you all are doing well, and you'll have to excuse me if i'm not posting a lot in the next few days.

Hey, and while I'm thinking about it... Write a letter of complaint about your experience to the CEO of the hospital (be sure to plug in any names of the meanies you can remember) and cc it to your surgeon. Nothing lights a fire under improving patient care than having the Big Boss and a surgeon aware of how poor your experience was. It's all about the squeeky wheel, you know.

I'm sorry your hospital stay sucked. I wish you could have gone to my hospital.

I hope you're really feeling great!

Sorry I have been distracted by problems while you were gone. Glad you're doing well.
