Post Op

It has been  sixteen days since surgery.  I have found a painless moment to write a little something.
Surgery was a blast, 8 hours on the table 3 hours in recovery, I don't remember much more for the next couple days except I felt like I was laying on a shovel, rocks, twigs and a fire pit.  When I was coherent the fire ants all over my back burned like hot coals.  I was finally able to have them look at the incision they had used Tegederm sheets to cover my entire back, that was great however I am allergic to adhesive,  It was noted on my chart,  I made sure we discussed it before the surgery.   That was all beside the point by now.  so they changed the dressing and I was completely blistered all over my back and sides. Big long wide blisters like 2nd degree burns,  I realized that my thoughts as to how my back felt was fairly accurate.  They redressed it and the staff was a frenzy to find out how it happened.  All I wanted was relief. They put some cream on it and redressed the wound.
I was determined to go home on Sunday, and I did. It has been so difficult.  When you can't even get in and out of bed like you use to.  I hate pain meds and have really tried to do without it. Its not possible as hard as I try, I get to a point that is beyond control and I have to do something.  The Doc said I should be on them for two months.  I am not in favor of that at all. So for now I will take it one day at a time.

Soon I will start making something..............................

Pre Op Post

Thursday is the Day,  I have been waiting for this surgery for five very long tears.  I am going to have a Spinal Fusion L4 ,5 and S1. I have had so much pain I don't know how I am going to feel when it is repaired. They told me a long recovery up to 2 years before I can do every thing again.  As long as I have my family, computer, puppy and I can sew soon, I will be fine. I am usually the care taker and now I have to be cared for, for a short time.  I will be in the hospital for 5 days then come hell or high water I am coming home! My little puppy will be lonesome without me and I will be the same.  She is my constant companion, My fuzzy BFF. 
So I will post again soon.

Out Of Rehab

If you follow my blog, you will remember a few months ago ( We Picked Up Some Babes). There was a fight or a rumble that ensued in the sewing room in the middle of the night and the next day when I went in I found this:

DISTURBING RIGHT??  Well something had to be done so they had to go to rehab. Why you ask ?  Well they had all been in storage for some time, and really can not take them out of the storage unit  and expect them to just adjust over night obviously.  So help was what they needed and so we split them up. So Anna Belle went to live in Yuma with Sarah. I sent her there because I knew that the atmosphere would keep her interested with the kids and everything.  Anger Management seems to have help enormously, Anna Belle still has a few problems with Sarah's other   dress form Marielle.  It's only if Marielle gets to wear the new aprons first. They are working on it.
Two of the girls are staying with us Anastassia and Addalyn  they are doing so well with Hildie . So far no problems.  Anastassia got her new make over when Sarah was here visiting. and Addalyn is Patiently waiting for hers. Maybe it's the medication? I will let you know from time to time how things are going.
Here are the new pix of the girls.
