A HUGE thank you to everyone who came.
The Amazing Food Spread
Joe was very excited.
I was very nervous.
After a long wait. They took me into the operation room. When I got in there I started to panic. And then cry. The nurses where awesome. I became very very overwhelmed. One, I was having surgery and I was awake for it which freaked me out a bit. Two, I was having a baby and that was very overwhelming. Apparently 9 months did not prepare me enough. :)
Anyway, you see what the OR is like in movies and TV but that does not prepare you for the real thing. It is unbelievable bright and cold.
So naked (but a gown) I hop onto the ICE cold table. Which was then raised very high (the anaesthesiologist was very tall). And these two little nurses tried to hold me and my big bell up on this tall table. I had to bend over to get the spinal. And since I was all stressed out I was having contractions or brackston hicks and leaning over thinking I am going to fall but having to be very still for the spinal tap. It was a nightmare.
The c-section was the craziest feeling, the doctors digging around. I felt sick a few times but she was finally OUT! They showed her too us and then Joe and the baby were gone. The baby was perfect! Then I was alone.
With my ovary intact. Dr. Hamilton and Dr. Adebi were AMAZING! I am so grateful I did not lose my ovary.
However, they had to take a little bit of the ovary and the cyst was attached to my fallopian tube and part of my intestine. Because they did stuff to my intestine I was not able to eat for 48 hours. This is me taking my first bite of real food. I order everyting!
