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.
