It's buttfloss time

I have a new, flat tummy. I may start parading around in butt floss. That may also be the drugs talking.

Not gonna lie....the first 24 hours hurt like hell. Now, that may very well be because I had NO pain medicine for over 24 hours after surgery. Why, you ask??? Because the pain pump was defective and nobody figured that out for a full day. You would think they would have been measuring the jiuce in it, but apparently not. It was'nt until I said "hey, look here....this juice hasn't moved a bit and I have been pushing the hell out of this button. I am in pain dammit!" Then they finally gave me a pain pill. So, let me repeat that.....I went a full, agonizing, 24 hours after major surgery without one single drop of pain meds.

I am feeling much more comfortable now. I have been getting up and down like a champ. I go to the bathroom on my own. I have been sleeping in a recliner. I am soooooo glad I bought this recliner off of the list of craig.


I have been so very lucky to have one of my bff's here to take care of me. She had a full body lift years ago, so she was very familiar with how to empty drains and change bandages. She is going to help me take a shower today and I can not wait!!!

That's all I got for today. I need to go nap now.

I have been thinking about you and your flat tummy. I can't believe they didn't notice the pain pump wasn't working, you would think that would be something they would QC with every patient!!

Glad they have everything working now. Can't wait to see the pictures.
