i'm alive....


(being wheeled into recovery after surgery...)

vital details:

1) no endometriosis (!!)
2) no detrimental c-section scar tissue
3) no noteworthy causes of pain

overall, today was a rather calm experience and prayers were answered! i was home by 3pm and laying comfortably on the couch. i will say that it was a VERY vivid reminder of what a c-section is like. anticipating pain when using abdominal muscles and just alotta deja vu in that department. those memories came flooding back and i remember thinking, "yep! it's still pretty fresh in my mind!"

the staff was wonderful and hello (!), the hospital gowns plug into the wall and automatically WARM UP!? that's why i look slightly like the michelin man -- i was full of warm air!

off to bed but just wanted to briefly update the world of this great news....
toodles!

That pictures is killing me!!!

So glad it seems like a successful surgery and you are doing so great.

We just got back from the beach late last night so let me know if you want me to take Isaac sometime. I know Abel would love to tackle, I mean, play with him. :)

Wandered over here from Stirrup Queens' blogroll and I wanted to say congrats--I'm so glad this went well, and especially for your baby! I have PCOS myself, and though we haven't actively started trying, we will one day, and this gives me hope!
