I forgot a big part about yesterday…. I WOKE UP MID SURGERY. I opened my eyes to a sheet over my head and I said, “are y’all almost done?” to which they replied “she’s awake!!!!” The sheet came off my face and I was staring eye to eye with my surgeon and nurses. All I could muster up to say was “hey.” My doctor made sure I was ok and instantly gave me more medicine. The rest is a blur but apparently I told her I wanted to go to The Red Door to eat pancakes. I hate pancakes and I have never been to The Red Door. Who knows what else I said….
Ellen was installed perfectly and the surgery went well. Yep, I named my port Ellen. Ellen and I will be on the couch all day today watching a Law and Order marathon. Thank you for all your prayers, calls and text yesterday. We are recovering nicely!
