I'm drugged up on endone but wanted to do a little post for those special people like my friend Carmel who are far away and not on Facebook so have spent the day praying for me and worrying!!
Pre surgery I was extremely nervous. Sentinel node injections went smoothly and were far less painful than Dr Google had suggested! Not a walk in the park but not gripping the edge of the gurney either:)
Every single staff interaction I've had today has been lovely...the Mater in Sydney is a place brimming with caring, compassionate people.
Waiting for surgery was emotional but I had Saint Mike to hold my hand.
Being roused in post-op I felt drowsy and in pain but not nauseous and knew I was in good hands. By the time I got to the ward I just really needed to see my gorgeous husband....how people go through this without a loving partner is beyond me.
I'm on hourly obs so can't really go to sleep...I'm amusing myself by watching The Great Australian Bake Off and reading the many many messages from friends and family on Facebook and text.
I've also spoken to Oldest and Middle KAT and love that I am once again humbled by what beautiful and caring girls they are:)
Signing off now....thanks and love to all my friends and family who are getting their updates here!
