First, let me tell you about my hospital stay. I loved all my nurses and the physical therapist. I received a fleece tie blanket in recovery (shown in picture) and they even gave lamb and Rudy, two stuffed pals I've had forever and taken to each surgery (don't judge) identification bracelets!
I never really had any rough moments in the hospital once settled. The only trouble I had was in recovery. I was sleeping, next thing I know two machines and something else is beeping really loud and one nurse grabbed me by the shoulders shook me yelling "Taylor, wake up!" I took a look at her but was out again, she did it again and this time there's three other nurses around me and I have an oxygen mask on. I was freaking out, I didn't know what was happening to me! I was supposed to be out of recovery and in my room by 12:30, but because of this issue, I wasn't in my room until after 4:00. But I'm alive now, it's all okay. :)
I shouldn't forget to mention the giant giraffe my dad got me to out do Stephan's get well present for me.
I've been home for over a week now and the first few days were hard, and nights were bad. I have some bruises on my back on a bad one on my arm. I have a hard time bending over and can't get comfortable, but I'm adjusting and it's getting better.
I had my check up with the scoliosis doctor and appointment with the neurologist Monday. Each appointment went well. My bandage was taken off and we saw my incision for the first time, it's longer than I thought it'd be. It's feels really weird, but it feels better to have the bandage off. All is good and I'll see him again in three months. My neurology appointment was also good and I'll see him in six months.
Right in line with my scar from tethered cord release from last April.
I missed being in church Sunday and with the 1&2 graders for Sunday school. I received cards from the classes which did cheer me up! Thank you!
