Hello, I am home again

Recommended Posts

Had my AK conversion on Monday. They tell me it went well even though the surgury itself took a few hours more than anticipated. I met some really good people along the way and plan to stay in contact with some of them.

Monday was all about the operation.

And Tuesday they applies the radiation treatments.

Wednesday the pain was less so I could back off on the meds. :-)

Thursday I missed the opertunity to go home because of a teeny fever. But switched to Tylenol for pain and fever.

Friday the fever was under control so they let me go home.

Today is Saturday. I had to learn to give myself injections. Wow. I am here and healing. Thanking God for looking over me.

Thank everyone that prayed for me or my surgeon.

Hi Doug, glad you are ok and that the surgery went well, hadn't realized you still had to have the radiation treatment even though you'd had a revision to a/k, so hope all the healing etc. continues well.

Take care.
