I was released today. I'm tired and sore but mostly okay, all things considered. I don't know how much time I'll be spending online - it's kinda hard to type considering where the keyboard is and where one of my incisions is!

But I just wanted to let you all know what I'm home and according to the nurses and my surgeon (and his five zillion residents, lol) I'm doing really well. I have my first follow up appointment on Wednesday.

I also wanted to say THANK YOU SO MUCH. You guys are seriously the best. When I got up to my room on Thursday there was one bouquet of flowers waiting, and then on Friday two more bouquets of flowers and balloons arrived! I also got a Vermont Teddy Bear from my aunt and uncle, so I was getting a lot of deliveries there. It was really nice though, and everyone who came into my room from the nurses to housekeeping commented on my beautiful flowers. And then I came home to some interesting emails and snail mail that made me cry a bit... I don't know how to thank you all enough. It really means a lot to me, and believe me, I know how lucky I am to have such incredible friends. Thank you so, so much.

Okay, that's it for now. I think maybe it's time for more protein drink.
