good day/good night

Today was a good day. My appointment with Dr Cohen was set for thursday, but the drains were slower and funky, so I called. They said "come on in today and we will take them out." HURRAY! You don't have to tell me twice.

So I went. And presto! I'm drain-free! Yyyyaaaaayyyyyyyyyy! It's wonderful.  It's amazing what a difference it makes. I can move so much more freely. And I don't have to be grossed out anymore. 
A huge step in healing! I am proud of the fact that the doctor's are happy with my healing progress. They have advised me to do certain things: rest, take my antibiotics, take certain vitamins, do my physical therapy stretches at home, and start walking again. I did them all, and it has paid off.

Now I am living a drain-free life! Ahhh the good life (funny how your perspective shifts). I can lay down again! Ahhhh.

And tonight, I was able to put my son to bed without assistance. AND, he fell asleep in 5 MINUTES (with only two inadvertent flying elbows to the incisions)!!! Now, anyone who has participated in the bedtime activities knows that this is a miracle in and of itself! Wheeeehoooo!

So the rest of this week is dedicated to resting and healing some more. I guess I can handle that.


  1. Im not one to post my thoughts and feelings on here regularly but i thought i would share this funny yet slightly disturbing mental image I had after reading today's blog.


    The Muppet Show opening! The song, the dancing, the singing, the lights and yes, even Kermie with his head held to the sky and arms flailing about.

    LOVE YOU!!!!

  2. I am beyond thrilled that you got the drains out, and are on the positive road to healing. I knew you could do it!!!! Keep up the excellent work dear friend!!!! :) Love, hugs, and prayers always!!!! :)
