Today was my first day home from my ALIF. whew it's nice to be here.
Surgery went great, but post surgery there were some bumps. my pain is still quite bad, but getting better every day.
My night nurse, the first day after my surgery gave me a med i was allergic to, and while doing so blew out my IV, and they couldn't get a fresh line in me for nearly 5 hours, so those 5 hours were really really awful. I used tools from my meditation practice as well as prayer to get through it, but it was really terrible. i have never been in pain like that, and was pricked 7 times before somebody could finally get a line in.
But I'm here now, and on the road to healing.
Thank you so much for all your prayers. :-)
