I spent the night at the surgery center, and the nurse for the night was like, "Wow, your heart rate is high" It is! I showed her my medical history and she made a comment. Like, what am I gonna do about it?
We spend the next two days at a hotel near the surgery center. This was actually really nice. A king size bed for me and dew. I know I watched a lot of cat videos and tiny house videos but I barely remember it. Opiods are a hell of a thing.
I had my first bout of post-surgery depression after I had the catheter and packing removed, which, wildly, the doctor even warned me about. Even the group sessions were like, "Yeah, the emotional part is more difficult than the pain."
I have my second followup appointment on Wednesday. Curious what that'll be about. There's also a music festival right outside our airbnb's door. I want to make it out to some of the food stalls at least once but standing isn't easy.
Oh, re: airbnb... since we had to be here for a month, it was the most reasonable choice. I love our host, though? She's been really nice and helpful, her husband brought us food while the power was out, etc. AirBnb as a company and a model has issues, but the basic idea of, "We have a suite we'd like to rent out" has been much appreciated in this case.
