She's Alive!

Yup, I lived through it. I won't lie...it was the worst overnight of my life, but this morning is looking brighter so far. My IV monitor beeped nonstop if I moved, I couldn't get enough to drink no matter what, and I now know what a 10 feels like on the old pain scale.

Today, though, I got up for the second time and the pain may have hit 7 or 8, but was back down to the 3-4 range as soon as I was back in bed. THAT, I can handle. The adjustment to my meds must have worked.

As much as I complain about fasting, I still don't feel like eating, but they make me eat a saltine with the Percocet. I think I'll probably want to eat at some point today. I also think I want to go home. I'm kinda scared to, but I want to. Survivor is recorded on my DVR, you know. Lol.

I'm bringing supper tonight, remember. If you aren't hungry, your family will be... especially "Sir Munchalot" as you called her.
Right now I'm planning on bringing Pioneer Woman's chicken spaghetti and a pineapple upside down cake. That could change.

you're eating less, I'm eating more. See? I got you!

I'm hesitant to make you laugh, but....(you know I will)...when my mom was in the hospital, she kept clicking the pain med button, and then the nurse walks in and my mom yells "Why isn't this god damn pain clicker working?!" ...and the nurse says...."because that's the nurse call button, dear." Hahaaaaa.......omg....

Carlene, They had to push morphine last night when the Perc. dose was too low. They started with half what was ordered, just to see how I'd do. Now we know. NOT WELL! LOL
