This is why...

nemesis ...I am so insistent on a good nerve block!

It means that not only can I be awake during the surgery but keeping all other drugs to a minimum makes me feel better in general.

My block was put in a 10:30 this morning.  It's now almost 6pm and I feel absolutely nothing!  My arm is so numb I can barely move it and I have absolutely no movement in my fingers!

I needed painkillers for a headache rather than anything else!

Once DH returns with DS and shows me how to use the webcam on this thing I can post pics.

Thank you all for your love and support over the past few months weeks and days.  It means so much to me!

oooh I am rather clever!  While looking for the webcam I discovered this thing has bluetooth so I was able to transfer some pics from my mobile!
