A few things I have discovered this week:
Attitude IS important.
Backscratchers should be sold in ALL hospital gift shops.
Pain pills are a blessing and a curse.
Abdominal binders are wonderful.
More than 2 hours of sleep per night is necessary.
Friends who cheer you through your first postop poop are priceless.
Children who are compassionate AND funny are a true blessing.
My husband is amazing.
