Return to Krista's Korner

"Each of us must come to care about everyone else's children. We must recognize that the well being of our own children is intimately linked to the well being of all other people's children. After all, when one of our children needs life-saving surgery, someone else's child will perform it. When one of our children is harmed by violence, someone else's child will commit it. The good life for our own children can be secured only if it is also secured for all other people's children. But to work for the well being of all children is not just a practical matter-- it is also right!" - Lilian G. Katz, Phd.

I live!

Surgery was fairly easy.  I was a cranky person last night and in a lot of pain, but doing well this morning.  I am still taking the Darvocet, though, so I am wired for sound.  I have been doing housework and have probably been overdoing it.  I still miss my internet time, but hopefully things heal well.
Chris did not take pictures, but we will get some this weekend.  I think he was a little bit worried, especially post-surgery.  They told us they called in the Darvocet prescription to our pharmacy, but when we got there the pharmacy had no record of it.  My anesthesia was starting to truly wear off and I was rather muddle-headed, so I didn't know what to do next.  Chris is not used to that kind of problem solving and wasn't sure what to donext, plus I think the fact that I was openly crying in Target rattled him a little.
So, I did what any self-respecting daughter would do.  I came home, shoved my discharge paperwork in her hand and told my mommy to "Fix This!".  She ended up going around in a couple circles, but got a hold of the Dr's service and he called it right in.  Mommy's are the best!

See, told you I am wired.  I shouldn't even be on here!

Edit: I forgot about my webcam:

Post Surgery Dressing

They apparently beat me up while I was under )

Don't I look like I am drugged?  LOL
