Just a quick update, from the other side of surgery, to let you all know I’m doing great and resting comfortably at home, happy to have the last major hurdle behind me.
Both of the two procedures went very well, clocking in at a little over three hours. I came out of recovery fairly quickly and felt well enough to go home last night, happy to sleep in my own bed. (The photo is me about an hour before being sprung from the hospital.)
My appetite and energy level are good and the pain is very minimal. I won’t be running any marathons but I’m fairly mobile, if not a bit hunched over. The hardest part so far has been to remind myself not to raise my arms over my head–I feel so good I sometimes forget that restriction.
Once again, Team Kathryn (Jenny, Anne and Karen) was on hand yesterday and I couldn’t have done it without them.
Thanks to all of you for your ongoing support and good wishes. My positive outlook has definitely been bolstered by the positive energy and good vibes flowing my way.
