Surgery Update and A Bit of Stained Glass!!

Welcome to Debbie-Dabble Blog!!
I am so happy you decided to stop by!!

I want to Thank all my friends and family, former Classmates and co-workers for your prayers and Well Wishes!!!

And I also want to Thank my Blogger friends from all over the United States and in other countries including Canada, England, France, Africa, Spain, Portugal, Australia, Mexico, Italy and Ecuador for your well wishes and prayers!!!
Stained glass circles in the Den windows.....

I only had to stay overnight .......
I was nauseated and vomited a few times during the night but we attributed it to the Tramadol ( Ultram) that I was taking for pain.......
Once my pain medication was switched, I was good to go.....
I did the stairs with no issues so I managed my stairs getting into my house but used another stair case further down my row of townhouses where there is only 7 steps rather that 13...
I will be downstairs sleeping for about a week or so and I have my first Physical Therapy appointment on Thursday, May 2nd.

So far, so good!!!

I do have some posts lined up so I hope you will stop by to visit again soon!!

Thanks to those who took the time out of their busy day to spend a little bit of time with me!!

  6. Glad you're halfway through your ordeal and headed for a brighter future. Have been thinking of you and hoping all went well.

  7. I am so glad to hear that you are doing well post op, Debbie! rest and don't try to rush recovery, as tempting as that idea may be. All in good time. I love stained glass so i enjoyed your photos of your pretty window glass hangings.

    1. Linda,
      Thanks so much for stopping by and for all your well wishes!! The first night home ( yesterday) was a bit rough because of the nerve block wearing off....But today, I am doing okay..I do have pain but that is because I can not take a lot of the pain medication usually ordered because it causes sever nausea and vomiting for me. I can only take Tylenol Extra strength and Tylenol with codeine which is not as strong as the oxycodone meds....But I know it will get better with each day...

  9. So pleased that you are doing well after your op. Just take time to rest and recover.
    Continued thoughts and healing prayers.

    I do like the stained glass circles, they are gorgeous.

    All the best Jan

  12. How wonderful news dear friend ! I'm so glad you're in the path of healing due to the success of your intervention and upcoming therapy. Therapy is wonderful, my mom got so much better walking and handling things with her right hand because of her therapy !
    The stained glass are beautiful. I always loved stained glass things and had a window at our farm and now in this house I had one made for our kitchen skyline.
    Praying and many blessings sweet Debbie.
