Wednesday, May 27
I woke up around 4.10 am. TOOK quick shower, woke up Nick "threw" my kids into our car and went to UCI medical center where I had my vascular surgery done by Dr. John lane.
It was so funny to be patient. Usually I was the one watching after Regina, standing next to her bed, watching nurses hooking her IV's up, giving her "sleepy" medicine. This time I was THE PATIENT. AND it was great feeling. :) UCI nurses are great :)
Anyway. Hooked up my IV, got labs drawn- saw gazillion doctors nurses and other important people who all wanted to know why I was there, which leg will be fixed, what meds am I on-- AM I PREGNANT --hehe, ...
ANd finally after talking myself to death I GOT MY FIRST MEDICINE cocktail. UUHHH. That was good. For about 3 minutes later when they started wheeling my away to OR, People suddenly seemed so cute and cuddly that I just wanted to hug everybody. I felt funny.. and while Dr Lane started doing Ultrasound on my leg I PASSED OUT. whew. I WISH I stayed awake. M WELL, as I was told after vein stripping surgery and Endovenous Ablation of Varicose Veins- I WAS JOKING AROUND and laughing and having good time-- REALLY???? REALLY ??? REALLY??? I HAVE NO recollection what happened. NONE whatsoever. I remember waking up seeing lights, passing out, waking up seeing lights passing out. NOT feeling any pain. AND then finally I woke up and started crying crying like there is no tomorrow. AND I HAVE NO IDEA WHY. I have no IDEA , maybe it was something they asked inside or I was talking about .. but I just cried. OF course I stopped crying and completed discharge process and CALLED NIck to pick me up from UCI .
NOW I am home and in moderate pain . Stuck with TYlenol PM that I am refusing to take. I have to keep my leg elevated- supposed to help with pain. NOT working.
