Everything was fine. They gave me a nerve block in pre-op so my whole arm was numb until about 7:30 last night. Usually they use a stronger block that lasts at least 12 hours but that paralyzes the diaphram. Obviously with my CF the anaesticiologisy (sp?) didn't want to do that. I think I would have been fine without it though, the pain is not bad at all. I'm just taking half a percocet. The med they gave me to relax me right before doing the block was fun though. It made the picture on the wall dance and swirl. I was so busy watching it that I didn't notice the injection in my neck at all.
