Finally Awake~All this rest makes for one Stiff body..LOL..but feelin pretty good!

Hi everyone...have you all been praying that I get pleanty of rest? I think it worked!! Thanks!!

I can't remember ever sleeping this much Restful sleep at one time...I'm finally awake at least for a little while.. I think I must have been sleeping off not only the surgery but all the stress over the past 8 months...When I finally crashed I crashed hard.. But thank god it was peaceful sleep...I never moved an inch so when I went to get up I could hardly move these old bones of mine...LOL..gotta tell ya this is not a good situation to be in when you need to make tracks down the hall to that little room on the right...

Anyway I made it and then I made it to the desk..It took me awhile to get myself awake enough to read all your sweet comments..
Thank you ..... I promise I will be taking care of myself and get plenty of rest... I don't think my body will be letting me do much else for a few days..

I feel pretty good all things considered.. just a lot of soreness in my neck muscles...and shaky from that stuff they give you during surgery to make your muscles stay perfectly still.. but the Dr. warned me that I would probably get the shakes today so I was prepared...
I'm gona get dressed, go outside and take a walk around the yard and soak up some of this sunshine..its beautiful out today...A nice walk ought to loosen up these old bones...LOL...

My neck is a little swollen but everything looks great..Dr. Phay did a great job...Hard to believe they sew everything inside but they glue the outside together... I told the Dr.. I wanted some of that great glue  to use in my shop...He got a good laugh out of that...

Time for that walk... thank you all once again for your support, kind words and prayers druing all of this.. You have been my Rock and for that I am grateful.  I'll keep you all posted...

Have a great day my friends have a great day!!

  9. Happy to hear everything went O K and that you are getting a lot of much needed rest. It was another one of those sleepless nights again for me last night so I am sure that when I fall asleep tonight I will crash.
    My #6 son and his wife are on their way down now with his travel home and pulling his boat. I of course will not be able to go to sleep until I see them parked in my yard.
    Have a good and restful week end Tonya

  10. Tonya, glad to hear that you are able to get up and move around some. Once the meds wears off you'll feel much better. Did you get the name of that wonderful glue they use? Seems like they use glue for alot of different things after surgery.
    So relax and don't come Take it slow.

  15. It's cold & raining here. So glad it is sunny in your area. sunshine helps keep up cheerfulness. Will help your recovery. Be sure to get your rest. You earned it. Blessings!

  16. Tonya, this is the best news...REST is so important for healing and your body said it needed it. There are many, many friends out here praying for you so I see it's working.
