Another day down.

Today was a pretty good day.  Had a much easier time getting up to go to the bathroom. Able to eat  some and I even took a walk down the driveway to the mailbox to get the mail!  Success!  My JP drains,( I have 4) have been putting out less and less fluid every day.


I get tired pretty easy, but have been trying to limit my naps.  I wanna try and stay awake during the day in hopes to sleep through the night.  Trying to decrease my pain medications, but I still need them.  i guess that’s what they are there for.  I’m pretty sore under each armpit and on the lateral aspect of each of my breasts.  It’s weird, because I don’t have sensation when someone touches but it hurts. Hard to put into words.

Do do you know what makes my recovery 100% better?  My Mom.  She came and picked me up from the hospital (car rides suck!) and has been here taking care of me.  She cooks yummy food ( I don’t really have an appetite), helps me get cleaned up, washes and dries my hair, sets her alarm to get up in the middle of the night so I can get my medicine, and keeps me very entertained.  I am so very blessed to have her here.  No body can take care of you like your mom.  I don’t know how people do this without a strong support system.

thank you Mom, this would be HORRIBLE without you. I love you.

  1. It was great to talk with you tonight and even better to see ya, you are doing great just like we knew you would.

  2. Glad to read each day you’re feeling better. Your Mom, my good friend Kathy is a wonderful person. She has been there during my time of need & you couldn’t ask for a better person. Positive, spiritual, a doer, yes a good cook, good listener & doesn’t hold back good advise (honesty). Geeze this sounds like a review. Enough about Kathy (ha ha). Glad she is with you. Enjoy your time with your Mom. Best wishes for the fast track to recovery.
