Dr. Welk came by this morning and said that surgery had gone really well. He was jazzed and even gave me the physician-patented foot squeeze on his way out.

I have transitioned from I.V. to oral pain meds and two hours later, I am feeling comfortable is the hospital bed.

I walked a lap around the ward. I was pretty tired by the end but it was good to get up and around.

Heather, the nurse even gave me an ice pack for my hotflashes. Sweet! 

There’s a possibility that I will go home tonight. I hope I will be well enough to do so because it’s hard to rest at the hospital.
