While this entry was posted with today's date, it was written after Lynn returned home from the hospital, after having surgery, once again. Just as you would be aware of, if you either knew me personally, or are a regular reader of Life with Lynnie (LwL).
While in hospital in London, Ontario, recovering from my major surgery, something happened that was surprising to me.
It was decided that my catheter should be removed. The surgeon chuckled when he let my nurses know and he commented to me that this meant that I had to get up and out of bed, more often.
I must admit that until that day, I was getting up when they asked me to. However, other than that, I was out cold, laying in bed. Meaning, I was sleeping.
In my opinion, it was probably due to having the morphine medications for pain. Yes, I had slow-acting morphine, plus fast-acting morphine, plus antibiotics, and Ibuprofen.
It was no surprise to me that I slept a lot!
In any case, I found myself getting up and around. Sometimes with help from my nurses. Other times, without. Depending upon the nurse.
Eventually, I was up and walking without the walker to assist me.
It was then, that I walked the halls. To some, it was shocking.
To me, it was an answer to prayer, from my God. More about this, later.
Until next time...
