So yesterday Beloved and I spent the day at the hospital. We got up early, I was fasting, and we headed over. Lucky for me I have teenage daughters:) Sierra got the kids ready for school and to the bus stop on time. Jenna got them off the bus at the end of the day and watched them. Colleen, my sweet visiting teacher and dear friend, got Lucy and kept her for the day.
We got there and I got suited up and we met with many nice people including Earl "I can put an IV in while riding in the back of a army transport plane with 60 patients racked and stacked all under my care", who I loved, he was so nice. And Jeanie I. who cheerfully cleaned up my messes at the end of the day. Handsome Dr Anaesthesiology with two kids who love to go to Hershey park and he highly recommends it and of course my doctor, Dr Polsky who I love love love. It was a regular love fest. Seriously I can not say enough good things about the awesome care we got. I had a spinal instead of general anesthesia and got to watch the whole thing, which was very interesting. I also got to chat with the doctors. I don't remember it taking a long time so the "happy juice" they gave me must have worked; however I do remember looking at the screen and seeing my insides. I should have been a nurse I had quite a fun time doing that.
Afterwards I had to wait until I could feel my legs before I could go home. We expected to leave around noon, instead it took until 4pm. That was the only negative...waiting, waiting.
I got home and Colleen brought us dinner, which was a nice surprise and so yummy! and then I went to bed and slept for 12+ hours :) This morning my back is sore from the needle and I have a few cramps but otherwise am back in business, which is good since today is my day to help in Lu's class room and we have soccer practice and honor choir, and laundry and stuff to do.
