Recovery

I had surgery yesterday to repair a hernia. It went well, though Nurse Noodle couldn't get an IV going and caused me to faint by grinding the needle inside my hand whilst looking for a vein. Fortunately, the anesthesiologist jumped in, and knew better than that nurse how to insert the needle for the IV by numbing my hand first.

Fortunately, that's the only bad experience I had. Recovery from anesthesia was fairly quick, and five hours after arriving at the medical center, I was on my way home. I slept well last night, and even though I don't like to use narcotics, I did. They really did help me sleep well, so I can recover better.

Today, nothing is on my plate but to rest. I have already received a number of casseroles and other goodies from my senior pals, but I told them that I didn't really feel like having visitors today. Instead, I will watch a movie, read, sit with my partner and hold hands, and do nothing. That's the plan!

Life is short: accept love from those who love you!

Here's wishing you a speedy recovery. And don't exert yourself before you fully recover please.

Oh, and squirrel whisperer... Does Best Half send them into the light too? :)
