Surgery Update

Well surgery was a little rough yesterday. I'm not sure if it was the fact that she did two surgeries in one(so it took a little longer) or if they gave me too much anesthesia. In recovery I became very nauseous. They gave me a shot to help with the nausea but I still threw up a couple of times until I started to dry heave. Not fun after being cut on in the abdomen. Then to top it off the nurse suggested I not take pain pills because she thought it would make me sicker. So I went about 30 hours with out eating or taking pain pills. Today is a little better because my stomach is not so upset and I'm actually able to take pain pills and eat a little. The doctor was able to remove the endometrioma and reported to Steven afterwards that "it is just bad luck if it comes back again"! So I pray that my "luck" changes soon. She did find 3 more spots of endometriosis that she removed and she left the fibroid because it was in my muscle which she said would take major surgery to remove. Lets just hope that we don't have to do that.

Other than that I have to thank my wonderful husband who held back my hair and held my "bucket". He told me later that it is true love because he has never watched someone throw up before. He was a real trooper and I think he can handle more than he thinks. I also want to thank my family and friends who kept me in your prayers.
