I also got some blood drawn and it came back that my potassium is high(which could make your heart stop) so they almost made me go home and reschedule the surgery for a couple weeks later but i quickly put an end to that idea and convinced them to still go ahead with the surgery. They informed me that i wouldnt be able to have as high of a dose of the sedative anymore but that was okay with me, i just wanted this over with.
Ready to go~
~Love the hat~
Surgery went well. I guess i told them a couple of times that they were hurting me (which i can hardly believe, i usually dont like to admit to that..i try to be a toughie:) but i dont remember any of it!
I then went into the recovery room where robb joined me a few minutes later and took this picture of me(I cant believe i am showing this, maybe its the vicodin taking over:)
He took notes on some of the funny stuff i said.
"Am i fat yet?" (i think that was b/c they told me once you start doing home dialysis you usually gain weight)
I asked him "whats that beeping noise?" like 5 different times, he said "it's monitoring your heart and i asked "whats wrong with my heart?" every time!
" I cant see good" (they had me take out my contacts before surgery but i dont remember doing that!)
I got to go home around 3:00 and i swear robb hit every bump in the road there was and drove over every railroad track(ouch) in all of grand rapids and missed every single exit we needed to take on the way home. i was not happy, but i forgive him now! haha. I wanted to be home soo bad.
I am still in quiet a bit of pain but the vicodin is helping. Check out my wound:
Thank you so much for your prayers, comments and emails, robb read me every one while i was in recovery.
Please continue to pray for a quick recovery and for a good, painless nights rest!
