THE NEXT ROAD IN MY JOURNEY

GRANDMA

WELL MY SURGERY HAS COME AND GONE. I AM NOW 4 DAYS POST OP.

I HAVE TO SAY THAT THE PRE-OP TIME IN THE HOSPITAL WAS NOT TOO BAD. WITH ALL THE COMINGS AND GOINGS I ONLY HAD TO WAIT ABOUT ONE HOUR TO BE TAKEN INTO THE OPERATING ROOM. I HAVE HAD SURGERIES WHERE I WAITING FOR HOURS. I DO NOT REMEMBER TOO MUCH EXCEPT BEING TAKEN INTO THE OPERATING ROOM, GOING ONTO THE TABLE AND PUTTING MY ARMS OUT.....BAM....NEXT THING I KNEW I WAS WAKING UP IN THE RECOVERY ROOM.

IT TAKES ME TIME TO COME OUT OF ANESTHESIA. EACH TIME I OPENED MY EYES, I'D ASK THE NURSE IF I WAS OK. I KNOW I HAD TO WAIT A WHILE FOR MY ROOM TO BE READY BUT THAT WAS FINE. I DON'T REMEMBER BEING TAKEN THERE OR GOING INTO MY BED. MY ROOM WAS NICE. THEY HAVE ALL PRIVATE ROOMS. LIKE ALL HOSPITALS, I WAS WOKEN UP SEVERAL TIMES DURING THE NIGHT FOR VITALS AND I EVEN TOOK AN OPPORTUNITY TO WALK.

THE FIRST DAY I GOT MY FIRST "MEAL". IT WAS SO HORRIBLE! A PACKET OF CHICKEN BROTH AND LUKE WARM TEA. FUNNY, I GOT THE SAME FOR LUNCH EXCEPT THIS TIME, BEEF BROTH. I WAS SUPPOSE TO HAVE A CLASS BEFORE I LEFT BUT THE NURSE DID NOT UNHOOK ME TO GO. AS A RESULT THE NURSE HAD TO "TACH" ME HERSELF.

I WENT HOME SATURDAY EVENING. I SLEPT IN MY CHAIR. I DON'T FEEL GREAT. I AM TIRED AND HUNGRY FOR FOOD! I SUPPOSE I AM HOPING FOR TOO MUCH TOO SOON.

I AM EXCITED WHERE THIS PATH IS GOING TO TAKE ME.
