So far today has been much better than yesterday. The doctor can by early this morning and said it was time for the Foley catheter to come out. He also removed the IV pain pump and placed me on oral pain killers. The hardest adjustment today was getting out of the bed to walk around. I am learning how to get out of the bed with the least amount of discomfort. I was able to get up a total of three times: 2 times to the bathroom in my room and once a short walk down the hallway.
I am so appreciative of all the support I have received through this blog and other forms of communication. I know your prayers are one of the reasons I am doing as well as I am.
The doctor just came by and said everything is going well. He inquired if I would be interested in being released tomorrow if tonight continues to go as well as today. He said he would be by early in the morning to talk more about it.
