BEA'S BOOK NOOK "I can't imagine a man really enjoying a book and reading it only once." C. S. Lewis “If one cannot enjoy reading a book over and over again, there is no use in reading it at all.” ― Oscar Wilde

I'm home! Tired, a little short of breath and a little wheezy, but overall doing well. There were a  few small glitches but overall the surgical team was pleased. I was wheezier than they expected after the procedure; some wheezing was expected since they were irritating the lungs in the profess of fixing them but apparently the wheezing was more than normal. Ah, the joys of asthma. But if the surgeries work, I'll see improvement in my breathing. I had 3 neb treatments in 4 hours after I woke up from the procedure, and an IV with steroids. All my vitals were good though and post-op lung function results were within acceptable parameters. I have a check up in 2 weeks and then procedure #2 a week after that. Because I had more secretions than expected and was wheezier than they expected, they're now planning on tweaking the meds for the next procedure so it should go more smoothly.
I'm glad I took tomorrow off from work. Supposedly, most people go back to work the next day. I am doubtful, especially working with young children. I hope to sleep late, and then, maybe, catch up on review writing and reading just for fun. I read several short stories today, in between bouts of dozing, in the recovery room.

Thanks for all of the well wishes and prayers everyone, they helped! ♥
I think my cat has the right idea. I'm going to curl up on the other couch for a bit and nap. The blog will be a little light while I recover, unless I do get those reviews written tomorrow.
