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.
