Tired after surgery

Everything went well. Dr. Guyer will have photos for me tomorrow. Olympic sized fragments. No complications. 1.75 hrs in surgery and no mechanical complications.

Leg/butt pain is gone. Faint numbness in the big toe, but that was the first distal part, so will be last to fully resolve.

Some ache in my hips from lying in them for days, but not bad.

Phlegm from breathing tube. Some irritation from cough/clear, and also from throwing up while under.

Back muscles are very tight (rightly so) and some pain there. If I am still, pain is 2-4. Coughing is 4-5. Have a morphine button, and should use it more than I am. It's climbing a bit, so I am trying to keep up with the pump.

My apnea is troubling me for the first time in a while. Fall asleep and my O2 goes down to 85. Then it beeps at me, and I wale. So sleepy!

Had a big meal at 5pm and am still stuffed: Cod, wilted spinach, blanched tomatoes, pilaf, juice.

Definitely tired, what with only 3H sleep (pain last night) and surgery.

Jenn and Erica have headed home for the night. I feel really loved and content. Thanks to all for the thoughts, light and prayers.

Glad you're feeling well!

Awesome that this all went well! Surgery cuts, sutures, and sews. Sometimes sucks.
