I just woke up from a cat nap, and I'm feeling ok. A little crampy and tired.
The procedure went well and quick. Everyone at the Fairfax Medical Center was soo nice and caring. Marc was a gem as usual. He was with me through out pre-op, and tried to keep me talking...and laughing. The doctors brought me in a gown, robe, socks, and a dashing blue surgical hat. Since I got to wear all the other stuff, Marc decided that he looked better in the hat. He wore it the whole time, until Dr. Forrest came in to take me back for surgery. I couldn't stop laughing..it was great!
Once I got back to the O/R, I was greeted by an Anesthesiologist Dr. Kim, Dr. Forrest and about 3 other nurses. Dr. Kim has some difficulty with my veins, and they ended up having to go through the top of my hand, whcih was much less painful. We began talking about the trip to England..etc. And then, just like that, I was out. Dr. Forrest told Marc that they had to give me extra juice, to get me to fall asleep because I wouldn't stop talking. Ha!
Once I was awake from surgery, and in the recovery room, I started to ge upset and cry. Something just hit me and I became so emotional. I think my mind finally realized that this was all over and I was no longer pregnant. It was all a little bittersweet.
