Yet, I am thankful for the wonderful nurses, PCTs, PT, and other staff members I had working with me; day and night.

    Hope all is well with everyone, Second day out from surgery was a little rough! I woke up and could not literally move; it felt like I had a ton of bricks sitting on me and my right side, felt like a semi had run over it.Needless to say my morning PT session was short this a.m. They have taken...

    I got the call today Elf1; I have to be at the hospital at 5:05 am. I am the very first surgery of the day. Me and my bestie have laughed all day about the extra 5 min. (5:05, why not just 5:00?) I'll probably be the rebel that I am and show up at 5:06 :) Many Blessings
