I am home...finally!

Surgery went well, thankfully no complications!
He released me today, although he was a bit hesitant on doing so when he saw the kids sitting there. He pulled Jason aside and told him I am VERY limited on what I can do, basically sit, lay and go to the bathroom. Im just glad to be out of there, you know how it goes when you have sick "roomates". OMG!!!! Horrible!

Im feeling pretty good right now thanks to the vicodin, realized that I actually have to take 2 at a time rather than just one if I want to walk without being hunched over. I thought he was going to send me home with the drain tube and I kinda felt for Kindle because she would have been the one who drained it for me. Thankfully he pulled it today and changed my dressing. My incision is about 18" long, pretty big for removing a cyst. So it kind of wraps right around my side and hurts like a mofo when the meds wear off, wow!

So I just wanted to quick post an update that I was home but I better go get back in the chair and get my feet up!
