I finished the surgery about
4:00 Friday. All went well,clear margins. Spent a restless night in hospital due to all the activity, but catnapped in beween visits. Sips of water and ice chips were a lifesaver because my mouth was dry. Multiple laps to the nurses station last night, then a couple more this morning. Had a good breakfast this am and good lunch as well. Doc came around 11:30 today, said all looked good and released me. We had a 90 mile drive back home which was uneventfull. I used a small pillow between my belly and the seat belt and it really helped. At this point the worst thing was the day before on clear liquid and plumbing cleaner.
So, been there and done that. Now it's time the next milestone.
All the best to each of you and thanks again for all of the information and support!
