This is Grammy Eeyore coming atcha from my hospital room following major surgery and wishing it hadn't had to be done. It was supposed to be just a typical gall bladder removal, but that just didn't happen. I suppose i am feeling better and looking better. At least that is what they tell me. Ohhhhhhhhh Well.
In case you can't tell, I am a little down, but not quite out yet. I sup-pose it will get better. They had me on morphine for awhile, and things were kind of woozy and pleasant with no worries. I asked them not to use it anymore, because I want to be awake for everything that is going on, and get some feeling back in the places where it needs to be.
Speaking of sleeping, I haven't been sleeping much either. OH, well. Carol got here yesterday and it is really wonderful to have her here with me, She also brought her computer with her and I am using it to do my blog today. I am hoping to get the foley tube out today and have been using a machine to help increase my lung power so I can holler at people when I get out of here. ha.
I have started walking around in the hospital a little bit. Carol is going to take me outside for awhile today in a wheel chair. Hope it won't be too hot. Oh, well.
I have been having clear liquids for all three meals. It seems like citrussy lemon is the only flavor they know, along with a putrid thing known as chicken bouillon. Gag!
It seems that they are keeping me here over the weekend so they can run another test. If they could just give me a pencil and paper, I could take just about any test they gave me and do fairly well on il. But no soap, wroong kind of test. I am hoping to go home on Tuesday, Maybe,maybe not. Oh well. See you later, I hope.
