I'm finally back posting! Thank you all so much for your Prayers and many emails. Surgery did not go as planned! :( I will not go into all the boring details, so I will try to cut this short.
I was at the hospital for my surgery and as you know that ask you a million questions. So I tell them that I am allergic to aspirin and that I can not take morphine. I was given morphine several years ago when I had another surgery and it has no effect on my system. So in other words, my body has a high tolerance for pain medication and most things do not work. I have my surgery and all goes well with that part. They broke my nose in 3 places, inserted a plastic piece down the center of my nose, cut out bone and cartilage, and fix my sinuses! The surgery is over and I start to wake up and I am screaming and pulling my hair out!!!! The pain medication that they give me has no effect on me at all. They strap me down to the bed so that I can not hurt myself and give me several other things, finally they get the pain, my blood pressure and heart rate under control. They debated on keeping me overnight but my vitals continued to stay good so they sent me home. I get home, take my pain medication and my antibiotics and sleep most of the time. So you think after a day or so you should be getting better after all it was a simple surgery right? NOPE! I collapse!!!! Of course with all the work on my nose, I can't breathe through it and then I just could not breathe at all. My mouth had blisters in it too, so I thought that was odd. Anyway, I collapse, I'm rushed to the ER and they admit me! Come to find out I am allergic to the antibiotic!!!!! My throat had swollen together and I could not get enough oxygen so I collapse and they said that my kidneys had started to shut down! I noticed that I had not been going to the bathroom as much and when I did I just could not urinate other than drip! Gross, I know but that is what happened. Anyway, they give me lots of medications and IV's, do tons of tests on my kidneys and heart. Got all that out of my system and they let me go home the next day. I don't even remember coming home that is how out of it that I was.
Things are better now, still weak but a lot better than I was! Thank you all for your prayers and concern. I'm sorry that I did not email you all back, but I was not on the computer. I remember a few times that Andrew would read my email and tell me.
