Sorry I haven't been back sooner, but I've been really depressed about the breast surgery. I had the surgery yesterday. What should of been a 1 inch incision ended up being a 4 inch incision. My left breast is so sore, swollen and very bruised and alot of pain when the percoset wear's off. I have to wear a sports bra and to get that on is a major project. I had to have my daughter Emma helped me put it on today because Jims at work and I couldn't ask him. Boy did it hurt putting this thing on. During surgery they gave me something that made me very calm then they numbed the area they were going to cut. During the surgery I had to tell them to stop at least 8 times because I felt the pain of what they were doing. They kept having to give me pain medicine. I don't remember saying this, but the nurses said during surgery I asked how my hair was, and if it still looked nice, because my daughter had french braided it for me that morning. They also said I asked for a blanket because my Dad was part bear and I had his DNA and my legs might be hairy and I wanted them covered up, lol. All in all everything went well. My surgeons were great, the nurses were so polite and gentle and very helpful. I was glad to come home though. I was starving, because I hadn't eatten since the night before. I wanted a fish sandwich. So Jim went to the new McDonalds they built near us and bought me 2 Filet O Fish sandwiches (no cheese). I ate both of them, they were so good. Then I went downstairs and slept until 10pm. I came upstairs and everyone was sleeping up here, (Emma, Dan, Daniel and Adrianna). I had a glass of pepsi and took a pain pill and went back to bed until 5am this morning. I'm thinking about going downstairs to lay down for a while. Emma and the 2 younger kids are napping. Dan took Marissa out for a daddy/daughter outting, and Jim and Rebecca will soon be leaving to go out on their daddy/daughter trip. So, it will be quiet here. Jim will be going to Leesburg, NJ tomorrow. He's going to see his Dad. He was released from hospital today and driven by ambulance home. The doctor's said there is no more they can do for him, his time is almost up. He wanted to go home to be with his family. Jim's Mom isn't doing well in trying to accept the end is almost here. Jim's going to spend the whole day there tomorrow. I told him he has to go. Not getting a chance to say goodbye to a loved one can really mess with your mind and leave such an empty void. Well, I go see my family practioner on monday, then next friday I go and see the surgeon who did the breast surgery so she can check the incision. I am praying it isn't cancer, and holding onto my love and faith for God. I want to thank Nelishia for the beautiful card she sent me, and I want to thank Sugar for the wonderful card she emailed me. I guess I will go now. I am feeling alot of pain right now and need to take a pain pill and go lay down a while. Take care and I hope you have a wonderful weekend.
Love to all...........................CINDY
