I’m out of surgery and on the road to recovery. I actually have two incisions to heal. The doc figured that he might as well go ahead and take out my old pacer while he had me here. The old pacer was in my abdomen, just under the muscle. Rather than cut through the muscle he decided to go in from the side. I thought it was funny that he asked me “Is it okay if I make another scar?” I told him “What’s one more?” 😉 They decided to put me under a general anesthesia, complete with intubation. :p So my throat is sore too.
Nathan says there was a lot of occlusion and scar tissue in my artery, so they really had to work at getting it all in place and/or removed. Dr, DeVille said “She might not like me much when she wakes up.” 😉 I guess I’ll forgive him, since I didn’t have to go all the way to MN.
I should be home tomorrow. I have to say, though, if I’ve got to be in a hospital, this is the one to be in! My first reaction when seeing the room was “Wow! This is swank!” I swear this room (all private) is larger than my room at home, and there’s a flat screen TV and even a desk, couch, and recliner! I’ve never even stayed in a hotel room this nice! 😉
Also, LD’s sono went great and she will start estrace on Wednesday. I’m glad that after today I can focus my attention back on LD and the cycle. Having this stuff out of the way is a huge relief!
