I have had a very busy week! Miss 23 had her operation on Tuesday morning. I've included this photo of her favourite piece of equipment in the hospital (her PCA button, Patient Controlled Analgesia button! It delivered pain relief after her operation) because in the background it shows the chair I spent a lot of the week sitting in! Her operation went really well. She had a vertical cut from her bellybutton down to her pubic bone (24 staples worth) through which a large external fibroid was removed. She was up and about the day after her operation and came home on Saturday morning. She is so happy to be home. Hospital is not really a comfortable place - even the best hospital in the world! (Which she declared the Women's and Children's Hospital to be!) She was busting to get out because she felt so much better physically with the fibroid removed. Before the operation she felt nauseous and tired and had lots of discomfort. She has to take it easy for about six weeks which is going to be difficult I think because she does feel so much better.
