thanks you guys.

First I want to thank all of you for the well-wishes. I have 100 messages in my inbox, and those are the ones that didn't get caught in the spam filter.

Hydrocodone is my friend.

The biggest pain is from the incisions in the abdominal wall. It's absolutely amazing how much you don't realize you use your abdominal muscles until you can't. Here's a fun trick: try to put on your own underwear without bending.

I've also gained weight. 12 lbs. to be somewhat precise. It's all fluid buildup.

I will update more eventually. I'm mentally and physically exhausted right now and looking forward to sleeping in my own bed.

But I'm home.

I'm so glad you pulled through.

Are you just going without underwear/clothes for a while? I would.

I have to walk, so I'll need clothes for outside. Beyond that, as needed for temp. control.

There's nothing like your own bed and bathroom.

some good aminal snuggles (away from the abdomen) will probably help with that too.

I'm glad you're home, muffin. home can be a nice place after the hospital.

Sadie is confused. She knows someting is wrong and wants petting, but can't understand why I don't want her to bump her head into my tummy...

Clearly, you need a sewing ninja to make special velcro-tied undies for you. Hmmm... !

Good to hear that you're home!

I think what I really need is a custom-fit belly-bra.

**hugs carefully but thoroughly**
The lady at the top of Comments is right: underwear is optional. ;-) Especially in your own house. I remember how hard it was just to get out of bed, let alone bending over to get my feet in the foot-holes of those damn things... (and I'd think that tighty-whities are just as difficult as girly panties). It was much easier for me to simply wear a nightgown, and call it good. (But I'd bet you probably do not have a large supply of nightgowns, so that may be difficult). ;-)

Glad to know you're home, and surrounded by Kitty and Doggie Love... :-) Take it E-A-S-Y for a while, and rest. You'll be up and doing stuff in no time. :-)

I have a robe for around the house. Going outside needs more clothing.

I've been thinking about you. I would blow kisses to anyone with abdominal stitches, but oodles to you. I definitely know what it's like.

*mwah!*
