Back from surgery, and things are going very well. Lots of things about my first surgery/general anesthesia were jarring experiences, but I had great doctors and nurses who made everything very comfortable for me. Will be dozing and recovering a lot today.
Best part is that I can already tell that my airways are much more open! And Jim is being so wonderful! I feel very safe and protected and cared for right now. And Fermi is sleeping at the foot of the bed to keep me company. I feel very fortunate right now.
