Surgery Update

Hi everyone, AJ here. Just a quick update, surgery went fantastically well, and she is doing great! The surgeon was really happy with the results, but we will have quite a wait before we can see for ourselves! There are no plans for her to move until tomorrow, but she is really alert and has discomfort more than pain - about 3 or 4 on the pain scale. I think the 3 shots of morphine have probably helped!! :)

She does have a catheter that feels "like nothing" so her fears there were unwarranted. Her biggest issue is a numb hand from the iv tape being too tight. 

I feel weird now that I was so stressed out about this, as it has been smooth sailing so far (touch wood).

Thanks everyone for your support!

Cheers
AJ

  5. AJ, thank you for the update! Glad to see she's doing well.

    If it's any consolation- I was exactly the same when Jay had his big jaw surgery. I was so stressed and worried, but of course everything went fine. I'm pretty sure it's normal!
