Yay !!! I know I don't look real happy in the picture.
But I am !!! Love my porch swing.
Thank you all so much for the cards ,gifts, good thoughts and prayers.
So totally unexpected.
I even got a couple cards from people I don't even know who they are.
How touching is that?
I don't know how they knew my name or address ,
but it was wonderful to come home to them.
Since I am keeping this as a journal for myself as well as to keep family and friends updated
I want to write about my surgery.
Some of you may not care to read it.
But I want to put down into words what happened.
The morning of surgery I was overwhelmed with the love and support I felt.
I was told by a nurse that they had never had so many people
show up for someones surgery before.
I was surrounded by love...
and I could feel the prayers from all my family and friends.
I did have a few minutes right before they took me down that I broke down and cried.
But I kept saying in my head God is with me..
I felt him with me and stopped crying.
He WAS with me!!!!
So many kisses and hugs from you all...
And everyone waited until the surgery was over.
My brother Nick even came..
What a surprise!!!
I can remember my last prayers as they put me to sleep
Dear God...please stay with me and keep me safe. He did :)
I was told later..that a sweet nurse had told my two daughters
"If you stay right here,,,you will see her as they take her from the OR
to the recovery room."
I do not remember seeing them...but I know they had to feel better seeing me
even tho they said a meanie male nurse would not even slow down so they could talk to me...lol
They said about all I said was ...I HURT...
After they took me to my room...A foreign nurse made the mistake of telling my girls.
There is to many of you. You can't all go in there, As my girls rushed passed her.
No one was keeping them from their mama...lol
I know many of them came into my room after that...
seeing me before they left the hospital even if I can't remember just who...lol
And close family all stayed until well into the evening.
I can remember being so surprised that I wasn't sick.
I get so sick after having general anesthesia. But I wasn't.
Thank goodness the anesthesiologist had listen to me and made sure he gave me good meds before I woke up so this didn't happen.
I was in a lot of pain...so the nurse put pain meds into my IV.
From then on everything went wrong.
I will post about what happened tomorrow as this is already so long and I am tired.
I still can't believe something like that could happen.
I started this blog for my family and friends as I'm going thru surgery and treatments. There may be times I am not able to answer a lot of Emails or PM's thru Facebook.So I felt this would be easier for all.
As many of you know I was diagnosed with invasive breast cancer 6-23-2011.And will have a double mastectomy 8-11-2011
