No sugar coating tonight

Tonight I'm sick.

The surgery went well this morning.  I came out of the anesthesia feeling pretty good.  The surgery was at 7am and I was home by 10am.  I took it easy today, but I feel like I've just felt worse and worse and the day has gone by.

I think the events of the last 7 days have just caught up with me.  I'm sore.  The nurse blew my vein when she put my IV in for the surgery and I have a 4" black / blue circle on my forearm.  

Larry has spent the day keeping things up and going around here today, and I am so thankful for his help.

I have 2 good friends that are pharmacists.  I wish I could call them right now and see if it's OK to take Ambien with Lortab.  But I think it's too late.

Tonight I feel like I have cancer.

Good Thought:
I have wonderful friends helping me out.  My needs and my families needs are being met.  Now I am going to focus on feeling better.  Tomorrow is a new day!


  1. I am hurting for you and the pain you must be feeling. I wish I could take some of it for you. I hope tomorrow will be a better day.

  2. I hope you are having a better day today. I have been thinking about you and know that there probably isn't anything I can really say that will help, other than I am praying for you and to tell you that you are courageous and you give others hope! Thank you for sharing your journey.

  3. You must be on my mind because now it has been 2 nights in a row that I have had a dream about you. (They were good dreams) We are praying for you jenn.

  4. I can't believe all you've had done in a week!! I'm so sorry you're feeling sick! I pray it is very short-lived. Love you!

  5. You have been amazing! You write in such a positive and wonderful way. I am so sorry you are going through this and I wish we were closer to be able to help. Sounds like you are being taken care of by wonderful people. You are exactly right about staying positive, positive thoughts bring positive reactions. Keep up on the great work and you are such an inspiration and blessing to the rest of us. I send you our prayers and know that you are loved by so many people and especially by a loving Heavenly Father.
