Minor Surgery, Major Pain

Just a quick update to all my blogging friends and readers.

The surgery itself went very well, but the post-op pain was bad enough that I ended up spending last night in a room being awakened every few hours by nurses taking my vitals and giving me cocktails of morphine and toradol. Then they tell you to rest. Riiiiggghhhttt....
Today, I feel 10,000% better and am assigned to light duty for the rest of the week.

I'd like to thank everyone for your prayers and kind thoughts, and especially to all those who agreed to let me snag a guest post for the week. Yinz are really great people.

I'd also like to send a special thanks to the my super doctor, Dr. Roy Clark (No, he's not in practice with Buck Owens. lol). He's a blessing to the medical community. Thanks also to the staff at Westmoreland Regional Hospital, especially my nurses. While all the nurses were nice, Rosaria, Brandi, Karen, and Darlene were a cut above the rest. Truly angels in their field.

I'll continue to be in and out of here during the week, but please keep reading the awesome guest posts this week.

Much love to all,
blackandgoldfan

BlackandGold,
I am sorry to hear about you having to endure so much pain. I am glad you are feeling better. I hope the healing process for you continues very quickly.

Thanks, Teresa! It was the worst pain I've ever had. Yes, even worse than natural childbirth. But I got over the roughest part and am well on my way to being my usual fun self by week's end. Take care!

Glad you checked in. My mom felt the same way the day later, and she was doing fine within a few days. I hope you follow the same path.

Thanks, Dr. Dave! After last Saturday, they need all the help they can. I say get rid of Batch. Dixon's definitely a keeper. Charlie just didn't impress me.

Welcome back...

I just watched the drunk monkeys. OMG that's hilarious! I'll be passing that one along to some friends and family. And Archie on Dems... classic.

Take care, get well only quickly enough to get some good work out of the family while you have that one at your disposal!!

blackandgoldfan said...

Soloman: I certainly am going to do that. I'll be on everyone's s**t list by the end of the week, but that's just too bad.

Glad you enjoyed the clips. The monkeys look like one of my family reunions. lol
