This body

This body. Amazing what it can withstand. My excellent doctors tackled my body’s negative reactions to anesthesia and pain meds with a full on approach. Nerve blocks at my neck, breastbone and armpit to get me through the first 16 hours, a patch, IV anti nausea, as well as an oral anti nausea med to push me through the first week. 
It’s definitely making a difference. I’m doing what my body needs to do: sleeping a lot interspersed with small single laps around the house and our little farm, lots and lots of water and ice. 
My pups have been my constant companions, lavishing snuggles and puppy kisses on me whenever I’m weepy. 
My hubby has kept careful and pampered watch over me, easing the tough moments. 
Thank you all for your prayers, well wishes and cheering. It’s meant the world. 
Most pressing debate in our home at the moment regarding my giant Dynasty-esque shoulder wrap:
Me or Joan Collins. Who wore it better?
