Sunday and Monday were true healing days for me. I didn't take anything for pain; not since Saturday night after 11pm. I got the Foley Catheter taken out Sunday morning and could start getting the strength to walk around the hospital floor and still rushing to the bathroom.
Sunday and Monday night, I had to take a Benadryl orally for my extreme insomnia (just to sleep in that hospital bed) I was really hoping that my CT scan could possibly be given early like on Monday instead of Tuesday. I just wanted out of the hospital as a possible.
Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday in the hospital was a bit more pleasant than Saturday! I was still hurting off and on through out the day on Sunday but proudly did not use any thing for pain; no morphine; time to heal I thought. Well tonight I finally got to go home from the hospital. My doctor came up to see us after my CAT scan which was scheduled at 3:30pm today.
It sure felt great when the doctor came in to give me the results of my latest CT Scan which was given at 3:30pm today. The image itself wasn't much different from the one given on Saturday morning but the great news was that I don't need surgery just yet; that's not to say that I won't eventually need it. For right now, my snowboard season is not over yet! I could actually go home tonight!
I sent out a mass text message on my phone to let everyone know I was heading home! What a great feeling! I got to go home after 6:30pm and my was it excellent to be able to lie down in my own bed! My cat Tonto really missed me and had much to say to me when I first walked in the door. So great to be home!
