Talking Thanks

Thanks everyone for your well wishes. I met with gas dr. yesterday and opted out of the epidural. He said they use it about 50% of the time for pain management. I'm going with the morphine pump instead. I got a little nervious when he said I probably wouldn't feel my legs for 3 days. YUCK.

Today, clear liquids only. MMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM that broth and jello was delicious!

Thanks again all. I'll keep you posted. I'm sure being home and bored for 4-6 weeks will keep me a little more active on the board.

Lorrie, I'm getting excited for you!!

I think you made the right decision, morphine pump instead of epidural. I held so tight to that little pump, it was my best friend!

Good Luck tomorrow, we'll be thinking abou you.
