The funny thing is that unlike ralph they didn't just put a bandaid on they put this humoungous amount of tape on it, i'm talking right up to my belly button and almost down to my knee and they put the big stone in between the tape to keep pressure on the site. So when i'm wearing clothes i look like a guy who's how do i put this excited!! Yep the rock plus all the gauze is that big :)
Oh and they ended up putting 2 stents in as the blockage was bigger than they thought.
Before the surgery i was talking to the surgeon who sat there eating a chocolate chunk cookie from Tim Hortons. I was teasing him because i couldn't eat anything to which he said don't worry i'll get you one. So after the surgery was finished he left and came right back with a cookie wrapped up with a sticker on it with my name and put it on my chart so that they'd take it up to my room for me :) Ahhhh he' s such a sweetie!!
And the other thing that was weird is that i was one of the last day surgeries so when they took me to recovery there were about 20 beds there and i was the only one there! It was like the twilight zone. And having to lay absolutely still flat on my back for 4 hours was definitely no fun and trying to sip water flat on my back wasn't either!!
So for today i'm kind of hobbling around trying to keep my leg straight. But he says i should be walking around o.k by Saturday.
Anyway i couldn't sleep on my back so i decided to get up and post this :)
Have a great day!
