Aug 14, I was working and had lots of abd pain and went to ER while I was at work and hoped if it was anything it was appendicitis but after a CT of abd, and a consult to a general surgeon. I had a mass in my upper abdomen attached to my pancreas. So lots of stress and Dr visits with a trauma surgeon, hematologist and such. I was scheduled for surgery on Sept 14th. Spent lots of time trying to get everything that I could think of done before surgery, not so successful if I do happen to say so, but we made it.
Sept 14th, went in for surgery at 1:30 and came out into the ICU at about 7pm. Very long surgery. Thank God for the ICU staff and my surgeon. I was graced with lots of good people and people that I knew to take care of me and make me feel safe.
Sept 16th, apparently that evening after brushing my teeth, I coded and was thankfully brought back. What an evening, very stressful for my husband and son, and the ICU staff and my Dr who were there with me. Thank God!
Well after 5 days in ICU, I was transferred to the surgical floor and spent 5 days there and was finally able to go home.. My mom was here to help take care of Gavin and me for about 3 weeks which I am very greatful for her help. I had lots of wonderful friends and visitors while in the hospital. Thank you everyone!
