Not sure if this has been posted and not sure if everyone would like to see this.  Tomorrow will be on .... looks to be live showing... for those interested.  2PM EDT.   I haven't had a chance to get back on here but BOB has been and informs me of some posts.  Sounds like a few have had some problems, and prayerfully all are now returning to normal happenings.  Glad to see those who are over the surgery and home and on road to recovery.  Bob seems to be doing very well IF HE COULD SLEEP.  He called the nurse today and she said to us TYLENOL PM.   HOPING it works.  He does fine until almost asleep and starts getting jittery and shaky.  He doesn't feel uptight or nervous so does not understand what it could be.  Someone told him it could be anesthetic but surely that should be worn off by now! Hoping that ends SOON.
Bless you all and have a good night!

Tell Bob he needs to see his doctor.... and explain exactly what's going on. He needs sleep and the twitches should not be there.... more is going on than Tylenol PM can handle...

We experienced this so I'm talking from experience.......

Hey Bob's Mom,

I had that problem for a few nights after coming home from surgery. It was drug withdrawal. Monkey on my back all night for a couple of nights. They gave me morphine in the spinal anasthetic and whatever in the IV. I've know drug withdrawal from meds before so knew what it was when it hit. Better see the doc to be sure....
