Day 45: Let the healing begin…
Well, I ain’ gonna lie, it is weird not having boobs and even weirder having four drainage tubes with little grenade looking bulbs filling with fluid attached to your body. Yep. It’s just plain weird.
We just went through the process of emptying those little things, wish I could say it didn’t smart… but it did. There is one particularly sensitive one and the fact that you are supposed to pull along the drainage tube to make sure it is empty of “old” fluids and clear of clots ads to the fun. Doctor wants us to do this every 8 hours – we are currently recruiting volunteers for the 3am shift…
In other awesome news, I received some wonderful loves from Shannon, Fran & Bob and my team at the office. A special thanks to Deanna for the delivery – and my apologies for sleeping through the visit. I think I now understand what a dogs life is like. Eat, sleep, go potty… repeat. Once the pain meds kick in, I get a nice nap, but it seems I come out of that sleep as quickly as I fall into it. Hopefully tonight will be more restful. It is hard to get rest in the hospital.
Speaking of the hospital, I seriously experienced the best staff at Capital Medical Center. From nuclear medicine, to the surgery nurse, the surgical team, anesthesiologists, recovery, night shift, everyone… absolutely amazing. What they say about hospital food is pretty true though… 😛
But hey… look what mom made for dinner? Pretty fabulous right?
Post op is April 1st… yes yes… April Fool’s Day. Feels so appropriate yes? Hope the lab results are back by then.
