I had my surgery Monday. I was suppose to come home the same day, but I was not breathing right for them. Seems I would breathe once and then skip a breath. They asked me if I had sleep apnea….and no… I had not. I think it was all the meds had me really knocked out! lol
They kept me on oxygen and thank goodness they were giving me morphine through a pump that I controlled ,along with pain pills every three hours. I kept the pump button in my hand even while I slept….I would wake up in pain and and just stare at the little button until it would light up signaling it was time for a dose. Thank God that this hospital believed in giving you enough pain medicine.
There was a lot of pain afterwards….a lot of pain. Like a bad throbbing toothache deep in the bones.
They took four x-rays of my arm after the surgery…and here ( all the dark part in my arm) you can see the metal plate, wires and screws that are holding my two arm bones to my wrist….they are a lot longer than I expected.Feels so heavy .
My fingers are swollen so it is hard to do the finger exercises that I am suppose to do three times a day. My thumb especially refuses to move. I got to leave St.Mary’s Hospital Tuesday evening around 4:00pm and had to go from there to Regional Hospital to get the staples that were put in on the Sunday that I fell, out of the back of my head. I was so glad when I was finally able to get home….The pain pills are beginning to help a little better , but they also knock me out.
Wyatt has just about mastered holding his own bottle!!! He has also ‘found’ his feet and he is trying so hard to get a hold of them! lol You ought to see him! He kept me, Amanda and his uncle Dan laughing at his antics yesterday! Just look at this little booger!
He keeps lifting his little feet up! lol
His Uncle Dan showed him the 2 liter bottle of orange drink and you should have seen his big blue eyes light up!!!! And by gosh he figured out how to use those little feet to get it up to his mouth without any help from us!!!!!lol
I was so happy to see him when I got home!
Here he is with his Mommy!
