The surgery went pretty smooth. He was going through my original incision but he didn't think he was going to have to use all of it. Well, the tumor was larger than he thought (about the size of a large orange) and he ended up using my entire incision. About 17 staples in all. He removed the tumor, along with my left tube and ovary. There is about a 15% chance that my right ovary could develop one also, but he looked it over really well and didn't see any signs. I asked for pictures of the dermoid and he said he will get them for me once pathology is done. Everything so far has come back benign which is great!
I just don't understand why I get 4 nights in the hospital with a c-section and one night with this surgery. Isn't it pretty much the same thing?! I think that has been the hardest part, because all of you mothers out there know that there is NO break when you are home. As much as you would like for there to be, it is much easier to recover in the hospital. Josh was great and Leila adjusted well to the bottle. I was able to have enough breast milk frozen so she wasn't in total shock. When I talked to him on Wednesday night he had both kids in bathed, in bed, and asleep by 8:30 and was enjoying a nice vodka/cranberry. LOL!
Sorry, there will be no pictures of me posted. I didn't have my make-up done at Mac before hand, so I wasn't really feeling the camera :)
On another note, Leila attended her first bridal shower and she was an absolute joy. She was such an angel and a little social butterfly.
Last Saturday we took Malakai and Leila to Creve Coeur Days which is just like a little fair here in STL. I hate these kind of places, but I knew Malakai would have a ball, which he did. We didn't stay very long, but he got to ride a couple of the rides and play a few games. Leila enjoyed watching all the lights.
