And it's over and done with!!!

My operation that is. I got my breast reduction done on November 5 and everything went extremely well. I got at the hospital at 6:45 am and the operation started around 8:15 next thing
I remember it was about 1 p.m. when I was in the day surgery room and Andy was talking to me.

I got home around 6 p.m. I would've been home sooner but the Dr. had an emergency surgery.
He removed close to 4 pounds! I never figured it would be that much!!! Now they really look nice and perky ;)

The pain is a LOT less than I was expecting, which is a good thing! I'm already feeling relief in my back and Andy says I stand up straighter too. The bleeding has mostly stopped so I (Andy) only have to change gauze once a day to keep it fresh. There isn't to much bruising and it doesn't look as bad as I thought it would.

I've been napping and sleeping quite a lot which helps me feel better every day.

And I must be feeling better because I'm getting antsy to start knitting again!
