Thanks for the e-mails and comments I've received. I've been doing really well. Obviously, I'm a little sore, but ibuprofen has been taking care of most of my pain. My biggest concern with my surgery is that I have gained 6 pounds in 2 days and I haven't even eaten that much. I thought everyone loses weight after surgery, not gains weight. I have felt incredibly dehydrated and have been drinking 2 1/2-3 liters of water a day. My hands are so swollen that I can't wear my wedding rings. They look like chubby baby hands (cute on a baby, not cute on an adult). And my stomach is swollen ~looks like I'm 3-4 months pregnant (also not cute unless you're pregnant).
Thanks to my parents for coming down and for my mom making an awesome Thanksgiving dinner. We had the best 2 days hanging out with them.
