Hi My Friends!
I am getting better, had surgery to help my Diabetes (Lap Band). Mostly sleeping and trying to eat or drink something. Moving like an old person and bloated with fluids.
Quite the ordeal at the hospital. All went well for surgery and the first day. Then the 2nd day I was to have a Fluoroscopy x-ray 1st thing. the order was lost and I fasted forever! The day surgery ward closed for the weekend and I was transferred to a ward not knowing if I would be going home or not. Finally had the x-ray, the most vile thing ever!!! YUCK!! Had to drink a barium fluid while being x-rayed. Felt like I was on a ride, tilt a world or something as the table kept moving and spinning. Then went back to the ward at @2:30. All I needed was a dismissal from my Doctor or a Doctor. No one would answer, being the weekend. Finally got a hold of someone at 8:30 pm and was allowed to go home. Poor George had just left and got home only to turn around and come back.
His car definitely needs new shocks! Ouch!
My throat is sore from the breathing tube but I am getting better at talking. Had a shower yesterday and the gauze removed. I have 5x 1-1.5" incisions on my stomach held together with dissolving stitches and steritape. Coughing is not fun.
Enjoy your day.
