|A Less Terse Version of Yesterday's Post
||[Jan. 16th, 2009|01:33 pm]
Thank you everyone for your prayers and well wishes; it means a lot to me!|
J is occasionally unnecessarily terse, perhaps. I had to go into the hospital for surgery yesterday. It went very well; the surgeon said that it could have been complicated but turned out to be easy.
The only problem I had was forgetting that I have a true phobia about not being able to breath (legacy of being a mouth breather for so long.) So when they un-intubated me and my throat was somewhat swollen I _freaked_ when I couldn't breathe. (Since I could talk, gasping out that I couldn't breathe, the medical pros were not nearly as panicked as I was.)
I'm recovering well, and once they get the results from the bloodwork they took today I may be let to go home this evening. They've got me up and walking, albeit slowly.
After being awakened at 12, 12:15 (workers cleaning up the bed next door) 1, 3, and 6 I gave up on sleep at 7; so my own bed sounds good for tonight.
Needless to say, Bryn Mawr Hospital has wifi.. :)
