Last thing I remembered going into the operating room was having my body shaved. Woke up in the ICU, and i felt like a Mac truck had hit me. Had all kinds of tubes and wires protruding from my chest, but at least I was still alive. Lots of pain killers the first night, and constant montoring of my vitals by the ICU nurses.
Next day they had me get up and walk. Felt like I was going to pass out. Had low blood pressure so they gave me 2 pints of blood. After the 3th day in the ICU, was able to walk a little and starting to feel better. had a real hard time regulating my body temperature, don't know why. I was either freezing or sweating and hot. On the 3th day, got moved to normal room.
