Amie's Breast Cancer Journey #4 June 20, 2015

Going home after my surgery!

I slept through the night last night.  I had the most wonderful nurse who woke me up every few hours to check on me.  I believe I was give a morphine drip to help with pain management.  It must be working because I don’t feel any pain.  I feel a tightness around my chest almost like someone or something is sitting on my chest.  Paul arrived around 6:00am this morning it was really great to see him.  Paul and the nurse helped to get me up to the washroom.  I am feeling weak because I have not eaten since Thursday evening.  My brother had brought me a tea biscuit from Tim Hortons and Paul began to break off the smallest pieces to feed me.  Breakfast was delivered.  I am not able to lift my arms to my mouth I think it is because I am tired so Paul spoon fed me jello and eggs.  I immediately perked up.  It felt great to eat again.  Throughout the morning I was checked on by the nurses.  My discharge papers were arranged and with a few instructions I was heading home around 1:00pm. Here is a picture of my mom and I heading home.
