Home again, home again



I am home and doing well! The surgery went very well, overall. I had a lot of pain immediately post-op, and my nursing care was sub-standard at best. I'm glad I don't work on that floor and hope to never be a patient there again! And I've already complained and will be complaining more. It was really ridiculous.
But other than that the stay was good, I had tons of visitors and got pretty flowers and stuff.
Anway, life is good. I'm sore but doing fine. Mr W won't let me do much of anything, except take walks as prescribed by the doctor. He's sweeping the floor as I type. I'm so glad he took this week off, I have loved having him home with me.
So my life now revolves around Full Liquids, that's all I can have for 2 weeks post-op. And the main focus is on Protein. So, I drink protein drinks, take my supplements, and sips broths, jello, etc. But I'm not hungry at all so I really don't mind, although some commericals make me drool just a little.
Thank you all for your kind words of support! I hope all is well out in bloggy-land.
