Posted by Stephanie ( jessica's BEST FRIEND) on 3/28/02 at 16:50 (077865)

Hey everyone!!
thanks for being sooo nice to my friend Jess and help her get through with this... umm.. i just came back from the hospital and I had to leave a bit early cuz she was really sick from the anastetic(dont no how to spell it) and codene... She looks really pale and is not her self....
when i got there she had to go get x-rays so i was talking to her mom and i asked her how she went trying to get in and how she was getting out and her mom said she was nervous and stuff going in but coming out shes like i don't no waht i was worrying about!!! haha....
Well I guess thats all i can say!
Well all the gr 7/8's at our school signed a card for her!!!
And we bought presents!!!
I hope she gets better and she wants the messages to keep coming lol haha

Do you still get sick from the anesthesia? I did too the first time I was put under VERY BADLY ...the next time I had surgery I told them and they gave me something and I didn't even get queasy.
Maybe you can tell them that...?

I think that Jessica mentioned she didn't want needles, and was going to get gas, for anesthesia. Probably a little harder on the system. Probably will be much better by tomorrow, I hope.

Yes Carmen I can go get very sick even with the stuff they give you for it . Now with my injecitons I don't get sick . They give me this med called Porpofol , it puts you to sleep just for a little bit , it is not a general . With my up coming surgeries I will not have a general , they will use the same meds as when I have the injections done. I have already talked to both of my doctors .

I hate the feeling when you wake from a general .

Thanks , Laurie R

Hi Stephanie

Thank you very much for giving us the news about Jess. I'm glad she's got this over with. Now she can concentrate on healing and getting back to riding. Please give her our love (you might print out all these messages and take the in to her?)

Thanks again: you're a good friend!

Re: Laurie

Julie on 3/29/02 at 02:26 (077929)

Carmen, the response to anaesthesia is very much dependent upon the type of anaesthetic given (there are many) and probably even more on the skill of the anaesthetist. After about six hours under I was perfectly ok after my mastectomy (brilliant anaesthetist) but distinctly queasy after 45 minutes under for my cartilage op (a dud).

Incidentally, the brilliant one was working in an NHS hospital, where my treatment was entirely under the NHS. The dud was in an exclusive private hospital, where my private insurance was covering his exhorbitant fee.

Thank you for telling us how she is ! She had alot of prayers being said for her. I do hope she feels much better today! She is a very brave young lady and she is very lucky to have you as her best friend!You both seem to be very special young ladies and I hope that soon you will put this in the past and continue with all the things you normaly do as young teens! Please give her a big hug from us and include one for yourself as you both are great teens! Very refreshing to see young people showing there caring and loving side! All to often we hear the bad about teens! Thanks for allowing us to see the love in your hearts, the caring and compassion that you share and jsut the fresh sweetness of young people! Have a wonderful day and Easter, and hope that Jess feels much better soon! Hugsss to you both!

Yes, please tell Jess that many people are reading about her and wishing her a speedy recovery!

That should brighten her day. And having a friend like you is the BEST medicine she will have!

Stephanie what a sweetie you are for keeping us informed about Jessica's surgery! (tell your mom she's done a great job with you....) When you see Jess again, tell her it's very, very common to feel nauseous and weak after having anesthesia - it'll most likely pass within a short time - and tell her we're all rooting for her!
