Yikes, the days go so darn fast! I had my surgery Feb 6, and everyone was super nice to me in the hospital, especially Nurse Morphine. Everything went as planned, and the surgery took two hours, fifteen minutes. It started several hours late though, so when Mr Posh phoned to see if I was out of recovery and they told him I was still in surgery he freaked the heck out. LOL. No surgery didn't last six hours, honey. Take deep breaths.

I took a selfie when I got to my hospital room.

In the hospital

I've had some ups and downs during my recovery so far (pro tip: don't eat chips a week after surgery or you WILL be down for two days with the worst gas pains of your life), and all in all I'm not healing as quickly as I'd hoped. We go to Vancouver to see the Poshkitten on Friday, and I am really not in any shape to be doing that. I've already got a wheelchair with my name on it at the airport, so at least I won't have to walk much there. The plane ride...that's going to be interesting. Hopefully I make some kind of miracle recovery this week before we go. My T3s make me hella sick to my stomach, but I might not have a choice. It's that or extra strength ibuprofen son, and that's not going to cut it. I took a percocet last night (left over from Mr Posh's appendectomy lol) and it was glorious. I wish I had ten of those to take with me, but no such luck. What is it with me and doctors and painkillers? Mr Posh got percocets for both his vascectomy and his appendix, and I got them for neither my C-section or hysterectomy. WTF. Yes, I'm outright bitter, thanks for asking. I'm not saying it's because he's a man...except I totally am.

Mr Posh has been a dream though (I know!), being very helpful and considerate and even cooking! The younger kitten is also extra solicitous, with hugs and water-getting whenever I need them. I belong to a group online called HysterSisters (great name), and there are women on there with nobody to help them, or families who resent and ignore them, and one's woman's husband died the day after her surgery!!! So I'm counting my blessings, believe me.

I'll let you know how everything goes on Friday OMG. Wish me luck.

Darling Posh!!

I'm sorry that things haven't been going as well as you'd hoped, but I promise with all my heart, the outcome is well worth it!

I had lovely painkillers - Vicodin. No wonder they keep those under lock and key. I'd like to have a bucket of those on hand for all the aches and pains.

Best of luck on your continued recovery!

*gentle squish*

Thank you so much, my Bunney! I'm very impatient for this part to be over so I can get on to the healthy life with no periods part.

I hope everything is super great with you these days. xoxoxo

Absolutely, good luck!!!

I hope your healing increases, and I bet your visit will cheer you!

Doctors give men so much more info, and also, apparently drugs. I'm glad Mr. has been a dream. Good for the both of you!

Thank you!! I can't wait to see the kid...and also have a little vacation in Vancouver overlooking the ocean. LOL!

There was another lady on that website who was sent home with no instructions and no painkillers whatsoever. Can you believe that?

Poshy!

I'm orderinh your body to heal right now!!!! This is unacceptable! Can't you ask your doctors for better painkillers for your trip? Or because you are in pain?

Thinking of you!

Mefnord my sweet! Hi! I hope my body listens to your orders.

I actually called the doctor to ask for something stronger yesterday (my doctor was off so I got her partner) and he's all, "What do you suggest I give you?" And I was all, "Percocet?" because that's literally the only drug I know by name. And he was all, "No." Hahaha. So he said there's nothing he can do for me and I should rest and I'll feel better soon. SIGH. So that's where I'm at.

I'm quite scared of going on the plane, but not ready to cancel just yet.

What kind of doctor suggests rest as a cure against pain? Grrrr.

Can't you at least book a seat at an exit? They are a bit less cramped?

While we are talking about no-periods - I have been period free for nine months now, but am expecting a heavy flow any day ;)

Okay, that came out weird. Am pregnant, due date was saturday, can't wait for number 3 to finally show. There, now you are all updated about my life: kids, kids and not much else. (Oldest is 3,5). I still love it, though!

Good lord, congratulations! You are single-handedly repopulating the workforce. I'm so excited for you, and wish you well with labour and everything after that. You must be about ready to burst at this point. :0D

Post pictures when the time is right, won't you? xoxoxo

POOR POOR POSH!! WHy on EARTH will they not give you some proper pain killers for ABDOMINAL SURGERY?! This is an outrage, and is outrageous, and I am outraged.

I'm glad to see your beautiful face, however!

First of all congrats on getting through the surgery in the first place! *HUGS*

It's good to hear that your family is supporting you. Everything will get better now.

You're way too cute for someone in a hospital gown!

I'm glad the surgery went well, and can't believe they haven't given you proper pain relief after. I hope the family's supportiveness hasn't worn off already!

Please post an update! How did it go on Friday OMG??
