Recovering

I've been recovering here at home since late Saturday. The surgery was involved; I had a lot of scar tissue from endometriosis and the doctor wound up removing one ovary and tube after finding it twisted around the intestine. Sunday night I stopped taking the Percocet in favor of ibuprofen, because I was feeling so foggy and weird. My mom is here taking charge of my house for the week. People have been by to visit and drop off meals.
And now, it's naptime.

Barb,

I will definitely keep you in my prayers for a complete recovery.

I had three surgeries for my endometriosis and can relate to what you're going through.

Take it easy and don't push yourself to do things too soon. Rest and place yourself in the arms of Jesus, the Divine Healer.

God bless you and keep you in His loving care!
