Well I am popping in to say that surgery went well. It was just as the doctor predicted. My inner nerve was severed as well as my upper most flexor tendon. Both were repaired and now I am casted and on heavy pain medication. Keith has been waking me up every 4 hours, as directed, to deliver more pain meds. I am in a foam contraption that keep my arm elevated for the next 48 straight hours to help with swelling. I am in a lot of pain so I am going to keep this short and will come back later with more updates. But for now know that surgery went well and I am just managing the pain.
I also want to say thanks to everyone who sent cards, emails and sweet comments. And to Kenny, Danielle, Janet and Hilary for all taking days and bringing me and Keith food this week. You guys are awesome! We sincerely appreciate it. Poor Keith has definitely been affected too…missing work, taking care of everything. To all of Keith’s clients: THANK YOU for being so flexible!
The pain medication is starting to kick in so I am going to go back to sleep. The meds make me dizzy and nauseous but thankfully they also knock me out cold. My Dad is coming over later and he offered to type me a post…what a guy. So more later….
