This is going to be an ultra short post. For those of you who follow me, I wanted to post an message to let you all know I did survive my surgery. The one thing you should always take into account concerning surgery is that things can and frequently will not go according to plan.
In the operating room a mistake was made that could have cost me dearly. Thankfully it did not do any permanent damage to me, but it certainly caused me a lot of pain and suffering at the time. Though the surgery was a success in the strict technical sense, it didn't solve the issue of the extensive pain. As a result I had MRI yesterday which found the cause of the problem with the pain. For now we are taking a wait and see kind of attitude, but in the end run it may require me to undergo another round of surgery.
I am finally home now and ensconced in my bed for the rest of the day. My life line for today and probably for several days to come are my pain pills. I am not sure how I would be surviving without them at this point. But things will be looking up and I am sure in another 3 - 4 days I will be back up on my feet. Believe me I am going to take it easy, but I have great faith that I am actually going to start feeling better in a shorter rather than longer time period.
Thanks so much for all the texts, e-mails and phone calls that I have received in the last 48 hours. Regardless of the outcome of this surgery, one of the things I have learned is that I do have a great bunch of friends who are willing to help out at any time. Thank you all so much!!!
Thank you all for being the best friends a person could have!!!!
Thanks and peace to all! ~J.
