Surgery Re-Cap [11-5-08]

1 Jan

After surgery, I felt fine.  Not overly happy or drugged from the IV, but not painful either.  I felt so well, that I found the prescription they gave me completely unnecessary.  It was all strong and had a lot of warnings on it anyway—I’ll save it for later.  I didn’t even need over-the-counter aspirin though!

Mostly my trouble was what to do in a vacated apartment for 4 or 5 hours.  I decided to eat some Doritos (yum) and watch “Pauli Shore is Dead”  I made it through the movie somehow, but by the time it was over I WISHED I had been drugged.  Wow, it sucks horribly—don’t watch it.

Lauren and Josh finally arrived and were overly cautious of my condition.  I suggested we go out and eat.  I was pretty stir-crazy by that time, as my day (aside from surgery) mostly consisted of waiting.  Suggestion:  Rainforest Café is yummy and reminds me of Vegas, so go there!

That night, I slept on a loveseat.  I’m pretty short, so it wasn’t as bad as it could have potentially been, but let’s just say it wasn’t the MOST restful sleep I’ve ever had.  Saturday, I had to get up at 7 am to make it to work on time.  Yeah, I worked half of Saturday the day after I had surgery, cause I’m hardcore like that.  Well, and there was no way out of it. . .

All in all the whole egg donating venture was pretty painless.
