The surgeon made rounds early this afternoon. The Foley was removed this morning and finally I felt nature's call. I have an IV of Lactated Ringers running at 100ccs an hour and the Diludid on demand.
He asked how I felt and of course I tried to look as healtjy as possibe and plastered a big smile on my face. I denied all pain, no swelling and mentioned the great bouts of urination I was having along with the flatulance that was required before being discharged ffrom thie hospital.
I asked if the IV could be DC'd. He agreeded and said the Dilauaded could be stopped if I didnt need it. I was IV free and I could cruise along by myself without taking all this stuff with me.
My nest qusestion was "Can I go home tomorrow?" I really didn"t expect him to say "yes" but that's exactly what he said.
I'm packing now. Of course the surgeon that did the surgery might have a different opinion when he rounds tomorrow. I'm packing anyway.
I'm on my way to shampoo my hair, find my lipstick and eyeliner. I want to look as bright and shiny as possible tomorrow morning.
