1 emergency surgery
8 blood transfusions
16 days in the hospital out of town
over 20 IV's
and more...But I am alive..healing, and there are no signs of cancer in my body!
That last surgery was unexpected and a doozie. The first couple of days after were better than expected and I felt like it was going to be a smooth recovery...then I tanked. I am still unsure of all that happened. I am just glad that I made it through and it is over. I got home on Saturday night and have basically been sleeping since.
(The strangest part, is that I have been awake and functioning, but I am just realizing that I have absolutely NO memory of about two weeks of my life. I really mean NONE...so I am sorry if I have been a bit out of it. I know they have me on a lot of medicines, but this is my 6th surgery this year and I have never had anything like this happen. I don't remember my kids visiting, my birthday, or anything else for about 2 weeks while in the hospital. It is a surreal feeling..)
