Thanks so much for the kind words of encouragement and inquiries as to my state after this 8 hour surgery.
I am "OK". I feel like absolute crap, but I am ok because I know it will get better, everyday.
I was discharged on Saturday evening and we checked into the hotel directly across the street where I will be recovering for the next 5 days until my Dr. Appointment on Firday.
I am going to post on my facebook account and then get some rest.
Thanks again. It is good to have the feeling that people care.
