Well, I made it home safe and sound. Maybe not so much sound as completely hooped up on smack.
Then the good stuff wore off.
Slept most of the day away, then like a rock all night. This morning I woke up and my mouth felt like a squirrel had burrowed in it all night.
I don't feel too bad today. A little tired, a little achey.
I got to the surgicenter place at 6am and they took me back to the prep area by 6:15 or so. The nurse made me pee in a cup. I tried to tell her that there was no way I was pregnant--well, there was that .0001% my tubes decided to unravel and let something through, but it was highly unlikely.
She gave me some spiel about how if I had all my "parts", they had to do the test. Then told me a funny story about how "you haven't lived until you've asked a nurse for a pregnancy test". I got confused and asked her if she went to a Catholic high school. Laughs all around.
She gave me my sexy gown, robe and non-slip socks. Got my IV. Talked to the anesthesiologist. No loose teeth to worry about, no allergies, no problem.
My doc came in and we chatted about what was about to go down. Can med students watch the procedure? Sure, why not? Who doesn't want their vadge on display for a bunch of strangers?
Then the nurse gave me something to "take the edge off".
HOLY SHIT. I don't remember anything past that.
Last thing I do remember is watching that "Clean Sweep" show with that woman from Reno 911 and then BOOM, I was waking up from the gas.
Nurse gives me some ice chips. Do I need anything for the pain? Um...yes, please.
There's my husband. Change back into my street clothes. Get my prescription filled. Kind of remember calling my Mom.
I've watched bits and pieces of all kinds of shitty movies. The kids are at their grandparent's house until tomorrow.
All in all, this has been a pretty sweet vacation from life.
