I am so happy to be home.   I was in recovery for over 4 hours so that wasn't so good but I am past it now.  

I am up and walking around although laying down is the most comfortable for me.   I am managing with just Tynelol.   Whoever gave me the suggestion for a camisole with the pockets for the drains - it is a god send.  The drains are really gross and I can't even look at them.  Fortunately my sister and Peachie have been able to do the dirty work.

Tomorrow a home health nurse will come and change the bandages.  I am not looking forward to that.  I have not looked down yet.   One thing at a time.

Thank you again for all your prayers and support.    You will never know how much that meant to me.

Wishing you all a happy and joy filled holiday.


  1. Warm prayers encompass you from Santas dark land. Have a peaceful holiday!

  2. Look at you already up and posting on your blog!!! AND finding a cool picture of chocolate therapy! :-)

    Sending waves of healing energy your way, dear 8.


  3. Glad you are home and the surgery is over. I remember helping my friend with those's not that gross, not as gross looking as a spinach smoothie.

  4. I am so happy to hear from you here, love and light and best wishes for a speedy healing.

    We lit a candle for you, it's burned every evening since the 21st.


  5. That picture is perfect!

    Please call if you need anything, anything at all.

  6. Sending peaceful recovery vibes your way. Have been thinking of you and wishing you well...

  7. Oh my...posting and on nothing more than Tylenol?!?!

    I think you should change your blog name to 8th Day Superwoman. ;-)

    Still holding you in the light, dear one. Mainline Nutella if you need it. :-)


  8. This is so awesome! I'm so glad to see your face! (So to speak.)

    You've been in my thoughts and I'm so happy to see you posting.

    Yay! (That's an awesome picture.)
