I went to Dublin Methodist for my surgery. That hospital is so nice. Big rooms, two tvs, one computer to check e-mail or watch netflix, quiet whenever I wanted it, a bed for Joe to stay with me at night, great nursing and room service 24 hours a day. Oh and let's not forget all of the great pain medicine every 3 hours. What else could you want! I was on the same floor at labor and delivery and they played a nice soft song every time a baby was born. If I didn't want to hear the music I shut the door. It was great.
So now I'm home recovering from my mastectomy. It has been hard at times but I remain very optimistic about my recovery from surgery. I have been busy doing my physical therapy. It is not easy but I have seen some results and it encourages me to keep going.
I'm so grateful to all of the people who have helped me. My mom took a whole week off of work and right now my kids are at my sister's house in Virginia so I can relax and recover. Other people have sent cards, flowers and food. Thank you for your support. I am happy and ready for radiation to begin.
