I woke in my room at 12 i know it was 12 as that is what was writen in my notes, I remember waking in the recovery room but it was very unclear it was such a large room and very clinical looking . I remember the Nurse stood to my Left saying "Hi Emma its all over " i drifted in and out of sleep for a while i did ask the time " it's 11: 20 Emma" so i had been out for just about 3 hours wow three hours to change my life for ever.
Back in my room there were nurses and health care staff in and out most of the day had a few phone calls allthough they refused to put calls through to me as the staff Protect you for the day of your surgary , No Visitors untill about Tea time that afternoon. I found this very good as you dont really come round untill about then ( well i didnt ).
I did have a very light "tea" on the tuesday it was a sort of very watery soup with a posh name looked like Beef stock . and was a bit salty for me but was the best thing ever having not eaten for almost 24 hours .
Had a bit of a restless sleep but it doesnt help with being woken up every hour to have your Blood Presure and blood suger taken every hour .
Robyn called this evening was really nice to see her ,
Wednesday 14th July 2010
Woken up at 05:00 breakfast was a cup of tea with no milk ( part of the Low residue diet thing)
this was to continue for the rest of the day as i am diabetic i was to be back on my Normal diet from day 2 wow i carnt wait.
Mr Thomas called in to check i was ok and looked at the T bandage it was ok but needed ctightening so got the nurses to do it later that morning even though he had pulled it tight it needed changing so they did it felt as though they were going to Pull my B**** through the top of my head ( well if i had any )
It was at this time i did wonder if MR T had done the op so i asked the nurse ..... " Emma i can assure you IT has gone !!! "
so what happend on wednesday NOTHING apart from the Nurses and health care staff calling in Emma "just need to check your bandage" one thing i will say here is if you are a bit shy at all learn now and leave you Dignaty at the door of the Hospital even better At home .
so they move all your covers bend your legs carfully all with help from the staff and them lift you Bum like in a crab sort of move so they can see under neath yo and make sure your not bleeding , Non was ever found under me at all not to say i havent lost a bit since
Dinner time was the thin soup again of which there were 2 types
both brown and both taste very much the same if im Honnest this time i did have lemmon and Ginger Tea which i do like more so than Black plain tea ( but i did get a liking for it )
4 more Bandage exams throught the after noon and that was the most exciting part of my day
and more Beef soup for tea again
