Still Alive.

Well I made it through. My surgeon was ahead of schedule so when we checked in there was almost no waiting around which was nice to just get it over with. I woke up with out any side effects from anesthesia and feeling pretty good. Of course my mom and Jon were able to enjoy the stupid things that come out of your mouth for the first few hours of being on narcotics. Good times! I stayed Wednesday night in the surgery center and came home on Thursday afternoon. I have spent most of the last few days downstairs on our comfortable new sofa in front of the TV. It's been nice and relaxing. Other than the stupid, dumb surgical drain I have sticking out of me there isn't too much pain. I don't think I get it out until Thursday at my post op appointment. Drag. Hopefully the next few days go by quickly and I can put this behind me. Still have to do the displacement exercises where I move the implant around to keep the "capsule" open and the scar tissue from forming. I don't have to do the laying on the floor thing like I did last time though, so that is a plus.
So far everything looks great and more proportional. The scar tissue is all broken up and feels more like the other side. This week I have to go in for my 6 month blood tests and brain MRI on Wednesday. Hopefully that all goes well and I can't wait to get that over with.
Since Jon has been working days rather than nights the last few weeks he has done the bed time routine with the kids. They all read together and the kids love it. Here they are this evening. What a good daddy!

I'm so glad everything went well with the surgery and that your recovery seems to be fairly comfortable--at least as comfortable as any recovery from surgery. :)

Praise God that all is well. I am so glad things went well and you are not in a whole bunch of pain. Jon looks like he is really doing well and the kids are growing so fast. Have a blessed Christmas Season and a Happy and Healthy New year..Big Cyber Hugs

SO glad to hear you're doing well. Wish we lived closer so I could help more!

I'm excited to see pics of your basement when you're feeling better.
