Surgery went well. Got away with just two incisions (I think 2-4 is normal). Not very much pain except for some in the shoulders, nothing painkillers couldn't take care of. As I didn't have anyone to take care of me at home, I was taken to the hospital's hotel after the procedure. Felt a lot better after I got some actual sleep; felt dead tired after the surgery but couldn't sleep. Had dinner at the hotel and then slept some more. Called mom and talked for a bit. Slept again, missed evening meal but I wasn't all that hungry so no big loss. Needed sleep more than I needed food.
Slept, woke up, lather, rinse, repeat. -_-

I liked my hotel room. I soon thought of it as "my apartment", really, if only there was a kitchenette, I could live in that small a space. (As long as I could cover the walls with bookcases, anyway.)

Noticed there were a lot of tiny babies there - they had an entire floor of the hotel reserved for new mothers, as far as I could tell. They were so tiny, and, dare I say it? Kind of cute, in a wrinkly alien kind of way. And, being just a few days old, their lungs weren't developed enough to truly shriek. So I wasn't bothered by them.

I'm supposed to not shower for a few days, which sucks. Got out my old loofah on a stick (for lack of a proper sponge) and freshened up a bit after I got back home, but I haven't been able to do anything with my hair.

Odessa was waiting for me when I returned. She seemed a little upset that I had just disappeared like that, so I went and bought her some tulips which she has been nibbling at.

Have had some more food, ice cream, watched some anime, did a load of laundry. I'd like to sleep now, but I don't think I'll have much luck with that.
