Good Morning my friends sorry for the delay in this post ...surgery and all things relating to have NOT gone as planned ! You see I went to the hospital with all intentions of being there for 3-5 days (per insurance letter &Dr's word) instead 15 hours after surgery I was dismissed(and a lot of lil details being left out ) on very bad terms to say the least ,my last surgery was 1 1/2 hours long and I was in hospital 3 days on a morphine pain pump and I had private insurance, this surgery was 3 hours long and I had a state medical card so hence I apparently was not worthy of staying or recieving quality care (keep in mind both surgeries were in the same hospital same dr) and went hours without pain meds my pain was never under control etc etc ! Upon arriving home my pain was SEVERELY out of control and the mere vicodin I was given did very lil to help it . I had a host of other issues to contend with but will explain some of those in pic captions. Just an all around HORRIFIC experience!
However Im going to jump ahead to today ....I had every intention of blogging and blog reading before now however I am not allowed to sit for more than an hour at a time for the first 4 weeks post surgery and well quite honestly sitting has proven to be extremely painful ...well everything has lol . The past 4 days Princess has been home sick so I have stayed up all day long until my mom got off of work and could take her to her house for a bit ..thus by the time I get to take a pain pill its bedtime or close to it and I am in excruciating pain ..hence laying in bed crying myself to sleep most nights !
I however am feeling a bit better than the above mentioned , but I do honestly feel the surgery was a complete failure and has caused other new issues :0( ..but I pray that will change and is just caused by my body trying to heal on the inside .The Dr. says it takes a complete year to recovery fully from back surgery ,it will be 4 weeks before I am supposed to do minimal tasks, and 3 months before I am to become far more active .
I have however mananged to create a bit while I was sitting up at random intervals ...most of the time when I am up I pace the floor it hurts but it is far less painful than sitting is . I will make a seperate post of the items I have created the next time I am up and about to share with y'all !
But all in all I am alive ,I am Blessed to be so !
So thats the quick run down , I'm heading back to bed as the Princess finally went to school today and I can lay down and try and catch up on some much needed rest . I am hoping by next week to be feeling well enough to visit with each of you and read your blogs!
Wishing each of you a wonderful weekend ..and until we meet again ...Ill always be ...just a lil raggedy angie! hugs
