We left this morning about 9:30 for the 10:45 check-in. Apparently right after we left, the Surgical Center called asking that we come early - Dr. Buchanan was running ahead of schedule - of course we didn't get the call, but as soon as we arrived they got things going quickly.
I was taken to surgery about 25 minutes early....and was finished in 30 minutes. Dr. Buchanan told me to take the pain pills every 4 hours (for the first couple of days) regardless of how I feel, just to stay on top of the pain before it can set it. I had a pill before we left GR, and Kevin is in town picking up the heavy-duty stuff (as well as getting Tumblebump's valium refill!).
Tiredness has set in, so it's time for a nap....glad to have the surgery finished and able to look forward to continued recovery.
