Feeling much better. IV pump is out and will begin oral meds, 24hr observation and then possible discharge to go home.
They let me SHOWER today! My hair is clean, brushed out and drying. *sigh* 11 days since I had washed/braided it for the surgery. I'm also wearing a cotton jersey nightgown of my own. I've had enough of the hospital johnnies with missing snaps.
Was still experiencing pain in my abdomen overnight, but I had a BM w/gas this morning and it eased the pressure considerably. Now my belly is just 'tender' and if I keep moving/eating, I can try to keep the gas/pressure from building up and getting so uncomfortable. Last pain shot was this am at 6:30. I'll see how I'm feeling this early afternoon and try to forgo any more pain meds.
Looks like I may get to go home tomorrow or Tuesday.
I have the ability of single-minded determination and accurate project focu....Hey, look, a cat!
UC is pretty darn crappy, but if you can't laugh at yourself, you'll cry.
I'd much rather laugh.
