My mom stayed with me last night. She switched places with Mitch, so that he could deal with the girls who have had some really bad nights sleeping lately. Mom helped me eat more ice chips because I had extreme dry mouth from the scop patch to prevent nausea. Every hour the nurse came in to check my vitals. I had a morphine pump that really helped with the pain. At about 4:00 am, I tried sitting up at the side of the bed and even walked to the bathroom to brush my teeth. Other than not getting much sleep, the first night wasn't all that bad.
