Hi AnnieRose2, my post-ops are Weds. We travel to LA tomorrow eve and stay in a hotel as the drive from our end of LA to Cedars Sinai is 3 hours in LA traffic! Yes, this post-op makes it feel even more real! I'm exhausted from pain so ready for relief. I agree about the "out" no pain or noise sedation. I'm a retired geriatric social worker retired from a hospital but not a floor SW. I ran community outreach, family caregiver support, and brain injury case management. I'm trying to be positive too in spite of feeling challenged by my small home, double bed to share with hubby, hubby catching cold, elder care, and a toilet just 16" from the tub to navigate! Ommmm, Namaste, sunshine sister!
