I'm going home!

The surgery was a resounding success.
And there's really very little pain.
Not at all what I was expecting. I mean, I have pain but not much.  Compared to the hip replacement, this is a walk in the park!
I was hooked up to a pain pump that would allow me to administer a 1 mg dose of morphine every ten minutes, for a maximum of 24 mg in four hours.  When they came to check it, I had used only four mg in five hours!  I was only needing a shot at three hour intervals.
I'm going home with Tylenol #3 for pain control, which I may or may not use.
The doctor is mightily impressed with my progress.
I'm mightily impressed with my flat tummy.  And it's still swollen!
Am I sorry I spent this money?
Not one bit.  Worth every penny!
