It's over!

Well I actually had 2 tendons severed and the nerve severed!! I thought I'd only hit 1 tendon.

Believe it or not I had the surgery done at 4pm and I have to go see the surgeon at 9 am tomorrow.

I'm taking narcotics tonight and will get a prescription for different ones tomorrow. Hope this post doesn't sound too loopy. Narcotics + only using one hand = :) I'm actually not feeling too much pain yet.

The nurses made me laugh by saying how spunky I was straight away when I came to.

I was smart enough to pop a pork roast in the slow cooker before I left and since I had no water or food since midnight last night till 7 pm tonight when i got home it smelled divine!

Oh 30 minutes before I left a package was delivered! I won a package from leslie sansone on twitter and I didn't know what it would be.  It was 4 dvd's with 1, 2, 3, 4 super walks dvd's plus a set of body boost cables.  As soon as I can use both hands I'll use the cables and before that I can do the walks but I think I'll wait a few days :)

I'll be back tomorrow and let you know what the surgeon says.


  1. Glad you came through okay! Enjoy the narcotics and get some rest :D

  2. I'm so happy that everything went well today, Suzi!
