*UPDATE* as promised: 28/f who had 60% of her lung removed today and can't fall asleep in the ICU
Last Wed. May, 16 I made my first IAmA post and was pretty shocked at the response it got! Had a hard time keeping up with all of the posts and I'm still wanting to reply to some of them as soon as I get the chance. I was FINALLY discharged from the Cleveland Clinic yesterday(Tuesday) morning. It has been a long, hard week! My surgery went great. My recovery is going ok. I've had a few complications(excessive bleeding, air in my chest tube) and setbacks, but hopefully things will go more smoothly at home. I really want to thank everyone for voting up the comments by helpmeimbored. She did NOT pull a scumbag Steve. She came to visit me TWICE! and even brought my daughter a birthday gift I feel really lucky to have met her this way and I know we are going to be lifelong friends. She's wonderful! She had surgery on Monday and I got to return the favor and visit her tonight. I'm not sure what else you guys want to be updated on. Let me know if you have any questions or want to know more details about the surgery/recovery. Thanks so much for all of the support, well wishes, and the entertainment you gave me during my hospital stay. You made it much more bearable!!
