I'M HOME

Hi Everyone. Well, I am home and worn out to be completely honest with you. Shawn updated you on what happened and indeed they had to cut me wide open because my liver had grown over and around my gall bladder so, you can imagine the difficulty that they were having to get it out of the way. Anyway, it was a good thing I didn't wait much longer because my doctor informed me that I was also on the verge of having pancreatitis. I am doing alot better with the pain today and that is why the sent me home plus they were probably tired of seeing me cry (lol). It is sad that you take so many things for granted and I am indeed happy to be home and enjoying the comfort of my own home and having my hubby and son around me. It has been so reassuring to know that Cameron has been well taken care of my Shawn's parents and I am so relieved to be honest with you. They are a true blessing to me!! It was just hard being at the hospital throughout the evening by myself. I didn't want Shawn to stay because of the snow that had fallen and the roads were real bad so I thought of him and sent him on his way. It was lonely being there by myself, I was hot, itching and feeling the pain so I was pretty miserable.

I am so happy that I was able to come home and have Shawn help me get cleaned up. Oh, it was such a delightful treat to brush my teeth, wash my hair, my armpits and other areas. It was just nice to get a sponge bath and to smell better or at least somewhat better. My husband has truly gone above and beyond his call of duty when it comes to his wedding vows. He is an amazing man and I owe him big for all that he has done to help me out. He was joking around with me while he was helping me wash up that I looked like a jungle women (hence the armpit hair) plus he told me that I had so much oil in my hair that he could probably give both of our cars oil changes (lol). I am trying not to laugh because trust me.... it hasn't been a good thing. Anyway, it is nice that he can joke with me about that stuff and still love me with as bad as I smelled and looked.

Thank you so much for your thoughts and prayers. I doubt that you will see me online for a few days, but I will try my best to stop in and check on you all. Hope you all are doing well. Hope this all makes sense.
