I did wear my red satin nite cap to surgery! Jane Volk had suggested it so I did it for you Jane...lol! The anesthesist took a second look as the attire on my head was explained to him and my doc loved it. Before they finally put me out everybody in the OR had a history lesson on the Red Hat Society. They actually threw the paper cap they usually put on your head away and promised I would have my red satin nite cap on throughout the procedure. Someone later told me I was the talk of the hospital that day....well I don't know if that was good or bad...lol!
A few of my chapter members came to my room to celebrate the 10th Anniversary of our wonderful Red Hat Society. They decorated and we just had a party. Some of the staff joined in too.
Surgery is over and I am home. The whole thing is still kind of a "fog" so my verdict on the experience is still out. I am continuing to go to rehab out-pt. I spent 2 days in acute care and 6 in acute rehab and I was ready to leave and do my out-pt therapy. They say I am doing well. The worst thing is being without my arthirtis meds because I am still on a blood thinner for now.
Just wanted to share my experience....please view my photos under my gallery...there are 5 of them.
Love to you all!
