Hey Flist, thanks for all your good wishes and encouragement!  I'm doing better and better each day.  Now, 11 days after surgery was the great unveiling - so I went to the dr. office to get my stitches out.  Yes, real actual stitches instead of staples - to make sure that things healed together and STAYED together.  (Unlike the prior surgery where things opened up and caused many extra weeks of healing).

The lab report was 100% negative so this was just a matter of the cyst on the ovary getting quite big and then *OUCH* twisting - causing the pain and travels to the ER etc. That is terrific (yet expected) news.

The only tough part is that I go back in 5 weeks to the dr. and until then - No Driving, No exerting.  That will keep me tied to home a bit more than I will probably enjoy, especially nearing the end of the time. But the goal is healing from the injury, from the surgery, and STAYING healed.

I have help around the house for the rest of this week - then will be independent. I'm doing better with stamina, although my sleep pattern is messed up from naps etc.  Best of all, I can take a shower (sorry if that is TMI !)

So, I'm on the road to recovery , thanks to the many thoughts and prayers from everyone.  Love to you all - I surely appreciate each and every one of you!

Excellent news! I am so glad it's going well.
The not being able to do anything much is a downer, but in the long run it will be worth it if you can be running around all the sooner!
::hugs you::
