I'm Alive!

And definitely a lot smaller! 13 ounces smaller in Ms. Right, and 14 ounces smaller in Ms. Left.

I apparently made an ass of myself in the recovery room while coming off the anesthesia... I distinctly remember a nurse shaking my face saying, "Why do I always get the loonies?!" When I questioned another nurse about it later when I was fully conscious, she said, "Ohhhh! Are you the one who was swearing?" Nice. I have no memory of swearing, as I was off in La-La Land, although I do recall trying to tell the mean nurse that I'm not actually a loonie.

To top it all off, I threw up all over the shoes of a handsome young man who was helping to move me from the stretcher to the bed. Peter witnessed it, and calls it my finest shining moment.

I've been spending a lot of time on the couch. The girls are still pretty sore at times, though not nearly as bad as you'd think, considering what they've been through. I still feel nauseated a lot of the time, apparently from the anesthesia. But, it's totally worth it!

I've read five books so far, and watched a lot of movies and Gilmore Girls.

Thanks for all the well wishes, guys.

I'll post before and after pics sometime soon.
