...at this time I am CANCER FREE!
They successfully removed the one remaining tumor. My surgery was at 7:30AM, right on the dot. Before they take you back to surgery they give you something to relax you. The first surgery I was able to fight it off and didn't fall asleep until I got to the operating room. Apparently this time I feel asleep before I got to the operating room because I woke up in post-op totally confused. I became very attached to my anesthesiologist and would not let him leave me. Finally, they brought Cody back and I gave up my anesthesiologist:(
He was a nice guy.
Anyway, Cody and I made the decision to head home after my surgery since it was scheduled so early in the morning. I think the drive just about killed Cody, but for me it went quite quick! I was out of it most of the drive! I feel so lucky to have a husband that would do anything for me.
I am feeling good. I am more sore today than I was yesterday, and I have discovered that I should NOT take Hydrocodone during the day. It did get rid of the pain, but I was a little loopy after taking it. It was an odd feeling!
Luckily, Cody and my Dad were here to help with my loopiness and watch over the kids! I am so blessed with excellent men in my life. I could not have asked for a better husband, father, father in law, or brother. They have all shown that they are willing to do what ever they need to do to help me through all of this. And for that, I am extremely grateful.
Huge thank you's to all of you out there. I truly believe that God has been listening to all of our prayers. I am realistic, I know that the chances of this cancer returning are great. But, I also believe that God knows how much my children need me and how much I need them. He is listening to us, my Prayer Warriors. Keep praying for clear scans! We can do this.
