Today I was at the hospital all day for an outpatient procedure. I won't get into what it was. I was kind of nervous because I'd never had to have any kind of surgery before. Thankfully there was no cutting involved in this. I got to say that the staff at our local hospital is totally terrific. Everyone explained everything along the way, made sure I was comfortable asking questions, even lead to the bathroom several times since I was attached to an IV. I'm also really loving the medial advancements that created the deep sedation that kept me from even knowing what was going on. And I felt no pain. Yay! Another anxiety for me. I do have some pain medication at home now and I'm going to follow their directions exactly. I really don't like pain. I also got an anti-nausea patch put behind my ear to help with any post-anesthesia nausea. I feel like I was taken very good care of! Now I'm just going to hang low for a few days. Let the healing begin!
