I want to thank every one for all their good thoughts. A very special thank you to Denise, my sister, for clearing her calendar to be with me on surgery day and also to my Southern Stitching Sister, Melinda, for the beautiful bouquet of flowers that arrived Friday morning. Also I want to thank Amy and Ruth for their emails of support. I am truly blessed to have such wonderful friends.
I have been very lucky in that I have not had any terrible pain. The first night my arm was numb so I felt nothing but I was told to take the pain pills to stay ahead of the pain. On Friday, I had mild discomfort but nothing I needed pain meds for but Don and Denise said to take them. On Saturday, I really had no pain but took the mildest pill. Today I stopped all pills. I feel pretty good. I am still having blurry vision, which is a side effect of one of the pills, and, of course, limited movement in my arm. I consider myself very lucky after all the horror stories I heard from people who had the surgery. The only inconvenience is sleeping in a chair but the good thing is my hair always looks perfect when I get up.
