Today, I finally underwent my surgery. Dad took me to the hospital. We left the kids at home and left the house at 5 AM so we could arrive by 5:30 AM.
I was in the prep room by 6 AM and asleep by 7:30 AM. I remember being given the medication to make me happy but I don't remember leaving the prep room or even Dad leaving the room.
I woke up several hours later with Andrew and Dad at my side. I was told it took me longer than most to wake up. They expected me to be at home by the time I finally woke up.
Andrew told me that I told him he "was nice" one time when I woke up. He said that he was laying his head on my shoulder when I woke up and said, "you are nice."
I finally got home late in the afternoon and went back to sleep pretty quickly after getting home.
I got flowers from Cappy and Nana.
