Happy Martin Luther King Day! (Surgery update and a weekend full of fun!)

It's been a long wild weekend!

To start, Friday was surgery day!
The Upper Endoscopy was successful and after a biopsy it turns out everything is normal (back to square one). Unfortunately half way through the biopsy, I came out of the anasthesia and was aware of the tube down my throat. I was in a half-awake state and attempted to object so they were a little worried about my vocal cords.
Afterwards, they said that my being young probably attributed to my waking up (though I had tried to convince them beforehand that people with POTS often need more anasthesia). They also said that in a couple more hours I would forget what had happened. Haha, um, yeah. Not so much.
But I came away from it, slept the rest of the day away and had no horrible things found so for that I'm thankful.

I also had a friend to keep me company while recovering.

Then Saturday, I had a Young Adult overnight at my work. I'm by far the oldest person who comes but I love all of them so it was really fun.
We went back to the roots of childhood and ran around playing capture the flag and hide and go seek.
We also accomplished the task that was the original reason for the get together which was to finish painting the room that we gather in.

Sunday, I saw The Lovely Bones. AMAZING. I loved the book and couldn't wait for the movie. The movie did justice to the book. I really recommend it.

Finally, today (Happy MLK Day!) I had an interview for a job. It would be a dream job so my fingers and toes are all crossed!
I stopped off at one of my all time favorite restaurants, Boudin (a Sourdough company) and they were busy making my favorite things ever... Sourdough turtles.
Aren't they the cutest? They even have craisins for eyes. =]

How was your four-day weekend?

Glad everything went ok with your surgery- a couple years ago my appendix burst and i had to have major surgery for it.. i remember coming out of anasthesia talking to the nurse telling her my life story- and she finally said "i think you need to rest" lol well then I started throwing up all over the place hahahaha oh that nurse should have dealt with my stories lol

Hang in there sweety! My daughter also has had a life time of feeling sick or/ and pain. Numerous tests, scans, procedures and no answers. She currently is just trying to live with it and take medication for depression that developed through her trials. She is also high anxiety and I wish that was diagnosed earlier to maybe help prevent her body getting sicker. But society doesnt like to diagnose children with depression or aniety/panic attacks. Probably too many kids would be diagnosed and what would that say about our society and way of life?
Looking forward to reading about your journey.
