Well I made it thru the surgery. My tummy was doing flips yesterday morning for sure. I was nervous and my blood pressure was a tiny bit high for me anyways. I think they said like 130ish over something.
When they took me back to the bed to get ready - it reminded me of the time a few years ago when I picked up Aaron (my son who passed in Sept) at the hospital when he had back surgery. It was the same Kaiser hospital but a different location. I saw the numbers over the beds and thought of that time. Sad...
They made me put on a gown and get naked - LOL. They said I had to take off even my undies in case I pee on the table. Good to know - right? They gave me an IV and asked me the same questions like 5 times. While they were rolling me to the operating room, I said "you know I get car sick, and sea sick, and air sick" They giggled and said they would slow down.
Before I knew it they were waking me up and said it was over. I said did I snore? or pee on the table? They laughed and said no.
The doctor told Hubby and Maria after it was done that he had no idea how I was walking on that foot before without a ton of pain. He said he removed a huge bone fragment and buildup.
They asked me at the hospital what kind of juice I wanted and I said NO. I don't drink that stuff too much sugar - just water. They were surprised.
Maria made me some toast and eggs and a few berries to eat around 2ish. I was hungry and thirsty in the beginning but after so many hours it wore off. But I felt better after I ate.
They gave me Hydrocodone/Acetaminophen pills to take for pain.
Later I hobbled in the kitchen to tell Maria what I wanted to eat and tell her what to put in the bowl. I ate a tuna salad with stuff in it. But after standing there for a few minutes I got dizzy and sweaty and had to go sit down and put my foot up.
My desert later was 2 of the creamcheese cookies I made crumbled up in some RediWhip. Yum.
So that's it and I tried to sleep the best I could.
This morning Hubby took the dogs for a walk again and then I was ordering him around to help me with my breakfast, LOL
How to make Coffee - I am pretty sure that was one of the reasons for the all day long headache yesterday - that and the anesthesia wearing off.
I ate half and gave the other half to Maria when she woke up.
Maria has to go back home today and Hubby has to work day shift on Friday - so I have no idea how I am gonna eat or get water or anything by myself. I will try to find a way tomorrow when I feel a bit better. Maybe I can stick a to-go mug down my bra or in my back pocket. Ha-ha. IDK.
I feel kind of helpless and not used to this.
Have a good one - This is PurpleRosy signing off...
Keep on BFC ' n :-)
