Had surgery..on to recovery

July 7 4:30am and we're on the road. Check in is at 6:00 and surgery at 7:30. I wake and recall the memory verse from journaling: 2Cor 1:3-4 3Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, 4who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God.

I really like that verse! And all morning He has given me the comfort that He promised to give! :D I go in and get to the holding area pretty quickly. I ALMOST called Donna just for laughs, but I didn't! lol Figured I'd let them do what they were supposed to be doing on me instead. I get on the gown, the long white knee high hose and footies and get in the bed.

Dr. Kee, the anesthesiologist comes in and gets my IV going...he is awesome!!! Barely a prick of the skin. We wait a little while longer and some techs come in and get some IV stuff going in me. They say it is time to go. Graland gives me a kiss and an I love you. The tech tells me the stuff will burn a little and OUCH! Yes, it did! Dr. Kee tells me to take deep breaths and it will help. Guess it did...that was the last I remember and when I woke, I was in recovery!
