My mom had a hysterectomy today. She was so nervous about it, and I could TELL.
How could I tell?
Lastnight when I talked to her on the phone, she was making very little sense. She was saying things like "tomorrow when you come over for lunch..." when she knew that I am not going there until Wednesday...
So I went to see her today after work, and I stopped by the gift shop in the hospital lobby to buy her a nice vase (we collect vases, the flowers are just decoration) and a card.
In the card, I wrote:
"Get well soon, from u-ter-us... er...I mean from US TER U!!"
Heh! Get it?? From uterus? Us to you? No?
Well, I thought it was funny anyways.
I am thankful that she had a successful operation and that she is doing ok. She was nervous for nothing! She said that she had thrown up right before I got there, but I told her she was just being a pansy.
(my family is a family of teasers if you hadn't noticed that already. we're only nice to you if we don't like you)
Anyone else had experience with hysterectomy recovery?
Anything special I should do?
