Today was a good day. First off I got to have breakfast with Pinder! She suggested we go to The Tom Cat Cafe. Never heard of it, but holy cow it was delicious. My mom and I met her there around 9, and after reading their 6 page menu of yummy deliciousness we finally ordered. It was so good to see Pinder. She made us laugh the entire time. Laughing is good for the soul. Breakfast was soooooooo good. Pinder, as she always does, went out of her way and got me a bag full of goodies. As most of you know, I like owls, and she got me 2 owl pens, an owl shaped lip gloss, owl shaped hand cream, owl tissues, an Amazon gift card, three little wind up owls, 2 little owl notepads, a pretty glass owl ornament, little owl Dixie cups, and a quilted makeup bag. All of this came in a cute re-useable owl bag. AWESOME. Completely unexpected, but extremely nice. Thank you Pindy!
After breakfast I had an appointment with the doc who referred me to the doctors in Philly. I will be forever grateful to her for suggesting that I travel down there. I could not be happier with the results and my doctors in Philly. Dr. Strieb is the one who gave me the option and names if I chose to go that route. She deserves some credit for her resources. Thank you!!
After that appointment I got my hair done. It felt so good to have my hair scrubbed. I know I pretty much have full range of motion, but I don’t feel like I have gotten it really clean since my mom washed it in the sink a few days after surgery. It was wonderful.
Then, a trip to target. It was so nice to get out and just be able to do something because I wanted to, not because I had to. It was so nice of my mom to drive my ass around all day!!! Thanks mom! We had fun today. And…..we finally finished the round puzzle. Sorry Jill, it was the round one or the chili pepper one, and the chili pepper one looks hard, so we went the easy route.
i know it doesn’t seem like I did a bunch today, but let me tell you, for me it was a lot and I am sore. My right side especially because of the extra fluid. I tend to get sore on the outside of my breast and under my armpit. It makes pulling things a bit difficult. I am also just downright tired. All of the walking around has made my back sore right in the center on either side of my spine down to my lower back. I no longer have my lats back there for support, so I guess all my other muscles are getting a good workout trying to compensate.
Tomorrow I go back to Philly for another fill. I’m sure to be uncomfortable tomorrow, I’m still not feeling full relief from my fill on Monday. Hopefully our trip into the city wont be too difficult tomorrow. Wish us luck!
