I am currently expecting a little boy, due 7/7/11!
When we arrived, we were put into room 3. Dr.
Levi came in shortly after and we went down the standard 'list' of
info that he needed. He kind of got onto my husband for smoking, but
it was all in fun. He asked if I had eaten and I hadn't so we were
going to do the surgery in a couple hours! I peeked in on AJ and she
was doing good! She had just had her IV, cath and epi removed and
was about to take a shower. So, Dr. Levi handed me my gown on
the way back to the room and told me to get changed. The nurse came
in shortly afterwards to do my IV. She did a pretty good job, but it
was still painful. She got it in though.... They came to get me a
little before 6 and I was crazy nervous. They wheeled me down to the
OR and told William to get changed into the scrubs. While he was
gone, they got me up on the table and I was really starting to
freak. I was terrified that they were going to put the epidural in
before I had the 'funny juice' in my IV! But Dr. Levi was there and
he was calm and told me not to worry, he would handle it. So, he
started my IV juice and I was all good.... I wasn't still enough, so
they had to do the extra sedation, but I was still awake for and
remember some of the details. It was all over by about 7:30 and back
to my room!
We ate some lunch in McAllen and were on our way
home.... The pain has been pretty bad, but I'm a wuss, so that
doesn't say much. We ended up stopping in San Anton again on our way
home to stay the night because I couldn't get comfy in the car. I'm
home and resting now.... bored out of my mind!
