Let me say…I made it through surgery! My shoulder was jammed up with lots of scar tissue and I had a few tears. The “gas person” (as my husband calls them), did a wonderful job. I was given a ‘block’ so I didn’t feel anything in my neck, shoulder or arm, then I was put to sleep! It was funny in a way, I remember them telling me they were going to give me… that’s it, I don’t remember anything else! Gotta love it. I apparently had lots of pain after the surgery and was given so good stuff to take it all away. I woke up with my friend in the recovery room saying, “Terri, breathe”. All I wanted to do was sleep but I suppose I didn’t want to take in enough oxygen! She would say, “Come on Terri, you gotta breathe, take a deep breath”.
I was so happy (usually am after given these meds), all I wanted to do was sleep or hug everybody. I bet I was funny. I just hope and pray I wasn’t a pain in the rump. Now, since I got my feeling back (24 hours later), I have been a little sore.
I went to therapy on Monday, yes Monday right after surgery on Friday, and made out okay. I can at least move my shoulder now. Muscles are sore and will be for a while but that’s okay. I will be fine, let’s hope, in no time!
Thanks for all the prayers and a special thanks to all of you that were there for me at the hospital. I love and miss you all!
