Almost Free!

I am off oxygen and they took my catheter out! Now I only have an IV, and hopefully is coming out this morning!

The doctors will come talk to me by noon, they said, so then we will know more.

In an hour I get to go walk for the first time, and later even shower and put on my own clothes!

And I still have no pain!

I feel better than I have in months!

It’s so exciting! I have to be sure and go slow and pace myself, and I know being up today will be hard and sore, but I am so excited to have surgery over and done with, and to already be feeling better!

It’s like a miracle for me, these precious hours without pain!

About Emily

I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints since 2009. I serve as a Chaplain, and work as a counselor. I got bilateral cochlear implants in 2010, but will always love sign language. I choose books over television, and organics over processed. Nothing is as close to flying as ballroom dancing - except maybe running, when in the solo mood. I would rather be outside than anywhere else, especially at the river riding my bike or kayaking. PhD in Marriage and Family Therapy, and currently doing a post-doc in Jewish Studies and an MDiv in Pastoral Counseling. The best thing about Emily World is that it's always an adventure, even if (not so) grammatically precise. The only thing better than writing is being married to a writer. Nathan Christensen and I were married in the Oklahoma City temple on 13 October 2012, and have since fostered more than eighty-five children. We have adopted the six who stayed, and are totally and completely and helplessly in love with our family. Nathan writes musical theater, including "Broadcast" (a musical history of the radio) and an adaption of Lois Lowry's "The Giver". He served his mission in South Korea, has taught song-writing in New York City public schools, and worked as a theater critic for a Tucson newspaper.
