I'm Home !

Safe and Sound ! I had my surgery last Tuesday as scheduled, took longer than thought. Couple of glitches, such as my heart stopping. My doctor says it is a known fact that when they touch the insides of someone they "faint", they got me back to a normal blood pressure and heart beat, tried again and all went well. It looks like I had a polyp (or 2) and everything was growing around it. I'm told all looked okay, still have to wait for the pathologists report, but I have a good feeling this is all it was.

The nurses were nice. The food was so so, the sorbert, jello and pudding were good, as were the oatmeal, soups and hard boiled egg. The roast beef with gravy on bread and chicken stew were something else :(

I thought of my Dad more than usual this week and how he endured his many many stays in hospital and without a doubt he pulled me through mine.

Thanks Dad, you are forever in my heart and always on my mind.

I really wanted to show you my stitching that I have been doing. I have a number of different finishes, from LHN Simple Joys and a couple of her ornaments to Blackbird Designs Small Token and Bird in Hand, with small freebies thrown in to whatever, no really Whatever by LK. I plan on finishing this one as a small pillow and placing it on my couch where I can look at it while I watch TV and stitch. It's exactly how I feel in my life now.

Last Oct. I had a pelvic ultra sound done with a lab note to have a follow up one in 3-4 months.
That was done at the end of January and it's been one doctor visit after another since then. What should have been a simple office procedure has resulted in me having to go for surgery. Oh and it's the second surgery. Last June 10 I had day surgery (laparoscopy and D&C ), which was not successful, so this has resulted in me going for a complete hysterectomy the "old-fashioned" way. Tomorrow Sept. 21st is the day and I get to stay in for a couple of nights. which I DO NOT fancy doing. So, if you can please send some good thoughts my way, I would really appreciate it.

Not sure if I will be able to use the stairs when I get home, so may end up sleeping downstairs in the guest room. Since my computer is upstairs, it may be next week before I can blog.

Oh and why is it I can't show you my stitching, with all this on my mind and other issues, I just have not been in the frame of mind to take pictures, in fact I havn't been doing much other then stitching, eating, playing games and more eating.

Well it's now 10:30 and since I have to be at the hospital 6:30 in the morning which means being ready to go by 5:45 I better get to bed. What I would really like to know is why I spent two hours at pre-admin last week and still need to be at the hospital so early when surgery is at 8:00 a.m.


PS: some weeks ago I was gong to post a video, but delted it. how do I get rid of that little box saying it was deleted ?
