Carpal Tunnel Surgery

The surgery itself wasn't bad--of course I was asleep! duh!! :-) I mean, everything happened on time, we didn't have to wait long...David was there with me (his joke-telling was really fun; his obvious concern was even better!)...I felt fine as we left.

Last night was a different story. I assume it was the anesthesia, but something caused a monstrous migraine--the kind that gave me nausea and had me throwing up (more than once, but that's more than you care to know!)

This morning, except for this PAIN in my hand, I'm okay. The pain pills the doc prescribed are taking the edge off of it. David got me all set up here in bed. Everything is at hand--my right hand, that is--I have my laptop, my phone, my books, my favorite quilt, a cup of coffee, the sun shining through the windows. It's good. And I don't mind typing with one hand.

If I can stay awake I'm going to work on my paper for the UCC ministerial partnership--I have to write a history of the UCC, go through an interview process, and then the Association votes on officially recognizing my Disciples of Christ ordination. After that, I'll have official dual standing in both denominations.

Anyway, that's my day. I'm assuming that within a very few days I'll be pain-free and very happy that I had this done!
