I made it

Well, I figured I'm now with it enough to post--but please ignore me if I don't make any sense.

The surgery went well. It lasted about 2 hours, and he removed 3 fibroids. I did have some mild endometriosis as well, and he removed it all. I feel really happy about the results.

Recovery so far has been fine. I was in a lot of pain in recovery and spent enough time there that my husband got a little worried. We were finally in the car to go home 3 hours later, and now I actually don't feel that bad. I'm in bed catching up on the DVR--Law and Order SVU and multiple things on the Food Network, and dozing in and out of sleep. I'm keeping down fluids, and have actually eaten too! My darling husband bought me those animal cookies that are covered with frosting and sprinkes (something I would never buy for myself, but will when we have kids, you betcha I will!) and they actually taste good. Hopefully I won't be vomiting all night because of that. Oh well.

So thank you thank you thank you all for your prayers, encouragement, and listening. You all are definitely an anchor for me.

Will post more soon.

Glad the surgery went well. Definitely continue to take it easy and give your body a chance to heal. Even if you feel well enough on the outside, you're doing a lot of healing on the inside.
I hope your recovery continues smoothly :).
