Surgery on Friday

Jul 27, 2016 5:49 PM

I am sorry I haven't been on much, been busy with blood work and X-ray's and Dr's appointment's getting ready for surgery on Friday, I am asking if you could please pray that everything goes smoothly with no complications during and after surgery. I am really nervous and anxious about this one , they are finally going to take out the Essure Coils via a Full Hysterectomy.

Flappys , know that I am praying for your surgery and that everything goes smoothly and no complications during or after surgery.

Love, Hug's and prayer's to all my pain family! πŸ˜˜πŸ’•πŸŒž

Oh Moparmom!! You never have to ask for prayers. You are part of this zany, wonderful, encouraging family and you're always in our prayers.

Sorry I didn't update you all sooner, I was in alot of pain and the pain medication they put in the IV knocked me out for a good duration of the day and the whole night. Who knew one could actually get rest in a hospital lol! I woke up coughing and which hurt but that's a good thing too as the stuff is not sitting in your lungs. They gave me oral pain medication at 7 this morning and I will be going for my first walk today!πŸ˜ƒ I am excited about that part!

I want to Thank Everyone for their prayers, I am truly blto have such a wonderful family here! Love, Hug's, Prayer's and Sunshine for ALL my pain familyπŸ˜˜πŸ’•πŸ™πŸŒžπŸŒΉ

Amen & thank the Lord! πŸ™‚πŸ’•πŸ™πŸŒΈ

Looks like my stay at the hospital maybe extended for another night, they finally had gotten out the cathaider, big relief! But now I can't pee and one of the site's reopened today, I guess after my second walk through the hallway. I will see what the doctor has to say about it. If they recommend another night, no biggie the staff here is great but I really really miss my kids and want to be home with them.

My husband didn't have much of a good night last night anyway, he was taking my stepdaughter to her memes when some did a hit and run on her side of the car, they both are okay hubby is just a tad ticked off to say the least, so now we have to pay out our high deductible to get the car fixed. But we are just so thankful that God was watching out for them and they didn't get hurt as they were on an express way doing 70 mph.

Jul 30, 2016 2:20 PM

Oops, hit enter to soon sorry I dosed off for a minute. I will keep everyone updated on if I can go home or not and know that I am always praying for you my family here. πŸ˜˜πŸ™πŸ’•πŸŒž

Jul 30, 2016 2:22 PM

Some people are so reckless with other folks lives!! So happy your family is safe, hope you get to go home soon.πŸ’

Jul 30, 2016 3:22 PM

Me too silvrry! I miss my kid's and my fur babies lol!

Jul 30, 2016 9:16 PM

Oh goodness! I'm so glad they were not injured. Rest up and hopefully you can go home tomorrow! Hugs love & prayers! πŸ™‚πŸ’•πŸ™πŸŒΈ

Jul 31, 2016 8:55 AM

I was able to pee, but a third site broke open and now they want me to belch at the bottom end and my bottom end doesn't feel belchy. *Sigh* as soon as he wake's up I am going for another walk, my back can't handle this bed anymore.

Jul 31, 2016 11:25 AM

Moparmom I am sorry that you're being delayed in the hospital. Better that you are there when this happens than being home and having to go back. I understand about not feeling belchy but the walking will get that to start moving and you will. I remember when I had my gallbladder out the nurse said she wanted me to have a bm or to fart and I said I didn't have to. I got up and walked a bit and said I had to use the restroom. I said to her, stand outside the door in case I toot so you can hear me and believe that I actually did it... LOL!!! Anyway, I hope that things get better for you quickly and they are able to get everything settled and closed.
I can't believe that car accident!! Thank God that their guardian angels were with them and that nobody was seriously injured.
You're in my thoughts and prayers my friend. {{{Hugs}}}πŸ’•πŸ™πŸ»πŸŒ»πŸ˜Š

Jul 31, 2016 1:52 PM

Thank You Alwayz, I have walked for the last 3 days since surgery and I am really getting down because it's just not happening. I even got up and got a shower, but I just can't do the other. I am praying that it happens soon or else I may cry! 😞 Dang these wacky hormones!

Jul 31, 2016 1:55 PM

I know Moparmom. I'm so sorry. Have you eaten? Sometimes due to lack of food or a decrease in food parastalsis doesn't readily occur because there's not much waste and also the pain meds they're giving you also slow that down. Please don't cry. If you need to lean on my shoulder, I've got your hand and you're in my prayers. I'll keep checking up on you. {{{Hugs}}}πŸ’•πŸ™πŸ»πŸŒ»πŸ˜Š

Jul 31, 2016 2:30 PM

Yeah, I have been eating good and no nausea except for the first night and that was because of the Anastasia.

The nurse came in with miralax and that stuff tastes nasty so added a tiny bit of sugar to it so I could keep it down lol! I love my nurse! She saw me walking around like crazy with no success so she went and got me something to help me get home.

I didn't think about the pain medication, it could be the problem as my pain management doctor just switched it to what I'm on in the hospital. Right now I am having to take it every 4-6 hours, I try to hold out to 6 hour's and this last time I held out to 6 1/2hours! Getting better half hour at a time.

Jul 31, 2016 5:51 PM

The staff at the hospital was really wonderful and the night nurse even told my husband that if he needed anything after the accident on Friday to let her know.. that's a nurse who truly care's about people and her patients family, all the nurse's and Tech's I had were awesome, I even had one tech tell me I wish all my patients were like you! Made me feel good.... if I ever need a hospital again I will definitely be going back to the hospital I WAS in I AM FREE!!!! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

Aug 03, 2016 7:38 AM

Yay! So glad for you. You'll rest much better at home. Keep testing & walking, but don't overdo it. Hugs love & prayers for a quick recovery! πŸ™‚πŸ’•πŸ™πŸŒΈ

Aug 04, 2016 3:30 PM

Yeah, I have over done it last several days as I am not one to sit still but it was stuff that had to get done within a certain time frame like picking up kids school schedule's and then school supplies shopping, so I was told by my kid's and husband that I was NOT to get up or do anything for the next few days lol! I am on couch restrictions so to speak hahahaha. I am resting today and doing well. The walking around helps me get the soreness out for a little bit. I am in great hands with my family taking care of me. The only other times I have to get out is Tues for open house at the school so I can talk to the band teacher and get my daughter's clarinet before School starts.

Aug 04, 2016 11:06 PM

Test this weekend!! πŸ™‚πŸ™πŸ’•πŸŒΈ

Aug 05, 2016 1:16 PM

Moparmom I guess since you're free you finally managed to fart!! Good for you.. LOL!! πŸ’¨πŸ’¨πŸ’¨

Aug 08, 2016 3:33 PM

Alwayz lolπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ yes I did! I have been home since Sunday after the surgery lol, had been super busy with school supplies shopping and schedule getting and tomorrow I have open house at the school and still have to get my daughter's band instrument, but I have to relax because my sites are not healing right.

Aug 08, 2016 3:43 PM

Moparmom I'm glad ur up and about and hour surgery went well. Please be sure to rest up we do t want any infection settings g u back.

Aug 08, 2016 3:49 PM

That's why I am taking it easy today, and most of the day tomorrow until the open house. My first post op visit is on the 11th so I am hoping that they can do something about it besides the glue that they used. I clean it up daily and change the bandages to keep from getting an infection, I hate sitting still lol.

Aug 09, 2016 2:54 PM

Moparmom I know you hate to sit still, just try to take it easy so those incisions heal properly. Ever since I developed all the issues I have, I've gotten horrible infections from my last two surgeries so I'm horrified for the ones on the horizon. Sending you much love,
{{{Hugs}}} and prayers for a speedy recovery my friend πŸ’•πŸ™πŸ»πŸŒ»πŸ˜Š

Aug 13, 2016 3:32 AM

Moparmom, just rest and take it easy between your kids school activities. It's hard to rest with so much to do, but rest is important to healing. Hugs love & prayers your incisions begin to heal completely! πŸ™‚πŸ’•πŸ™πŸŒΈ

Aug 13, 2016 12:32 PM

The post op visit went great, they glued the one site back together and put more stripes on them and the other 3 have healed up nicely with all the work I did with cleaned changing the butterfly stitches.

Hope you're doing well today Flappys, praying for a complication free recovery, Love You my dear friend take it easy and rest well! πŸ˜˜πŸ’•πŸŒΉπŸŒž

Aug 13, 2016 9:12 PM

I'm glad to hear your p post op was a good one. Keep resting & healing, and don't overdo it too soon. Hugs love & prayers for a much calmer last half of the year for you dear friend!! πŸ™‚πŸ’•πŸ™πŸŒΈ

Aug 14, 2016 3:17 AM

Thank You Flappys I am praying for a calmer one as well! But by the looks of things it's not showing down yet.

Got an email from my lawyer and it looks like my ex is signing his rights to the kids away to keep from doing whats right by them and paying child support. Go figure! Today I get a call from my mom and my Cousin who is only a year younger than me had a heart attack, and I am having to keep an eye on my daughter as her friends grandmother called her tonight to let her know that he killed himself, it kinda made me mad because she had my # and could have called me and told me so I could have broke the news to her, but she called my daughter directly and told her and I had no idea what was going on until 2 hours later when she refused to come out of her room. I this year will get better, it's just taking time. God will have me there in his timing I just have to lean on him and not lose my faith.

Before I would be a big mess but with everything that I have been through this past year and last year I have learned to lean on Christ and trust that he knows what he is doing. When I times of stress I pray and then put on my music, especially "just be held" .

Hope you are feeling well tonight and your pain from surgery is leaving, prayer's always with you Mt friendπŸ˜˜πŸ™πŸ’•πŸŒž

Aug 14, 2016 9:58 AM

Oh Moparmom what a nightmare I am so sorry for all that is going on. You're an amazingly strong woman and I know that things will get better for you. You've had one hell of a year and it's been pure hell on you, I know, I would have fallen apart by now. I'm sending you lots of love, gentle {{{{Hugs}}} and prayers to help get you through all this. πŸ’•πŸ™πŸ»πŸŒ»πŸ˜Š

Aug 15, 2016 8:09 PM

Oh Moparmom, my heart breaks for you & your family. I'm sorry for the loss of your cousin, and your daughter's friend. The ex is a loser! I didn't know a parent could just sign off rights to avoid paying child support; wow! This is going to be hard for your daughter. But with you as her mom she will get through it. You are very strong, and you can lean on us anytime! I wish I could remember the verse in the Bible that says, though we have many trials to go through, they are shaping and strengthening us. Much hugs, love & prayers for you all! πŸ™‚πŸ’•πŸ™πŸŒΈ

Aug 16, 2016 1:39 PM

Thank You Flappys, I was actually going to say that God must really love us to be putting us through all these trials lol! We are having major issues with the plumbing and if we don't pass the perk test thier is a strong possibility that we will have to move out of a hour that is paid off. But Again I know God's got this and we will be okayπŸ˜‰.

Hope you're doing well today my friend! Prayer's staying up for you and your recovery my friendπŸ˜˜πŸ™πŸ’•πŸŒž
