Surgery went great on Wednesday, they repaired both hernias with mesh and finished me off with about 60 staples from stem to stern. No kidding, it looks like I have a zipper down the front of me. Bad part of it, the zipper is not really stright, it curves to the left right next to my belly button. I would take a pic, but, I think I will spare you of that.
Had to stay in the Hospital till Saturday, a tad bit longer than I would have liked, but, I'm home now. I go in tomorrow, Thursday, to get my drain tubes removed, not looking forward to that part, but, they do have to come out. I am guessing they will remove the staples the next week.
The wildest part, if you want to call it that, I found out I quit breathing in recovery after they gave me a pain shot. The nurse (cute, young, male nurse) told me he tried to get me to breath, but, when that didn't work, he jamed a tube down my throat and did my breathing for me. He said it took a couple of minutes to get me to breath on my own, but, thankgoodness I did. He also told me my heart NEVER stopped beating, I just didn't want to breath. What happened to good old fashion mouth to mouth??? Anyway, I can laugh at it now, at least I am HERE to laugh about it!!!!!!!
Anyway, while I am recovering, I am catching up on my hand quilting of the spiked with color quilt. I am just about finished and I can see the finish line just around the corner. I can't wait to get the binding on it and put it on the bed to show off. I am hoping sometime next week to have the finished pictures posted. Wish me luck.
