Just a quick update . . . surgery went well and recovery hasn’t been that bad.Â I’m still not exactly sure everything that happened—one of the dubious perks of being under general anesthesia.Â I know they took 2 polyps, but other than that I’m not sure.Â The recovery room nurse was sweet and helpful, but once she told me that ibuprofen has aspirin in it I decided to get details elsewhere.Â I guess I’ll have to wait until my post op appointment to find out everything that happened.Â At this point it doesn’t really make a difference if I know now or in two weeks.
I’ve cut almost everything out of my evening schedule for the week to give myself a good chance of being well when I leave for Europe and Africa in a few weeks.Â I’m kind of looking forward to a week that isn’t jam packed.Â In fact, right at the moment, I’m looking forward to a nap when I get home.
For those of you who prayed—thank you so much!Â It’s nice to know I’m not totally on my own.
