I’m home recovering from a little gallbladder surgery I had earlier this week. I’m beginning to think I’m sending my body parts to heaven one at a time
Today is the first day I’ve actually felt like checking my email and doing a little blogging. So, here are 10 things I learned from having surgery this week…
1. Compassion is the greatest quality in a nurse, and I’m thankful that my nurse was full of compassion.
2. It’s impossible to have any kind of self-dignity in a hospital gown.
3. It doesn’t matter what kind of surgery it is, anesthesia makes me throw up every time!
4. When you’re wearing one of those always-open-in-the-back hospital gowns, never turn your back on your friends
5. When you’re told, “This medicine is going to make you a little woozy,” believe it.
6. It’s nice when a friend stops by and says, “Can I pray for you?”
7. If you’re visiting someone in the hospital, any visit longer than about 3 minutes is too long.
8. I learned that real love is my sweet wife spending her entire day sitting right next to my bed.
9. The best place for recovering is at home in your own chair or bed.
10. It’s great to have friends who pray for you and check on you.
