hi its Sam - Tad and mom are here with me - so thought i would update everyone. I checked my email,facebook - and blog - thanks everyone for your thoughts and prayers.
OK - so where to start - Surgery day was not the most fun day of my life - but it is over! There are a couple of unpleasant things that i remember - the pain, the dry mouth, and the guy snoring soooo loud in the recovery room. A nurse would go over and yell -" breath Christopher" and hit him on the chest - i wanted to laugh- but it hurt too much! i have to say that since then every day makes a huge difference. i am now "speedy" with my walker making my painfully slow lap around the ward. The nurses have been Great! i want my night nurse Gigi to meet Trey - so cute!!! They are taking great care of me and it would be a lot rougher with dry mean nurses. I never knew so many tubes can be put in a person. At the most i had 6 drains, oxygen, 2 IVs, and a honken pump that requires its own purse! The one good think i will say ( guys stop reading if you don't want this news) MY BOOBS LOOK LIKE BOOBS!!!! those aweful mastectomy pictures are NOT me - i really think it is amazing. It looks like a truck ran over me - but you would never know that i had a double radical mastectomy. the tummy hurts more than anything that i have experienced - but it will be pretty when it heals - Can't wait!!!
so - i am coming home tomorrow - can't wait to see my little guys. I will be on the mommy chair with my remote and phone - and when i can some kind of yummy drink! miss you all - and hopefully will touch base soon! Coops having a great time with his cousin - but i will definitely take advantage of the play dates offers next week!
xo to everybody -
