Day After Surgery

Well, my Breast Lift and Augmentation was yesterday morning. I had to be there at 6:45 am. I think I am doing rather well. I have not slept much, although my pain meds are supposed to cause drowsiness it doesn't seem to affect me. In fact they seem to be keeping me awake. But at least I can nap whenever I want. Hubby has been Super Dad, taking care of me and the kids, he is so wonderful!
I have the WORST cotton-mouth ever... It's from the anesthesia and having a tube down my throat during. It was supposed to go away today, but I still have it. It makes it hard to eat when you have cotton-mouth, the best thing for it has been chicken broth. At least I have not been nauseous at all.
I feel like someone is sitting on my chest. Its really tight and its hard to use my arms. All in all, the pain has not been too bad. The worst was first thing this morning. I think because I had been laying down all night, so when I sat up, it hurt for a little while.

My wonderful Plastic Surgeon sent me a beautiful basket of flowers, the card said "Happy Healing".
