I'm home

Mom and husband have been awesome. Twin sis is off at our high school reunion also being awesome. She's already called a couple of times with some interesting stories, I'm thrilled she having such a nice time. She deserves it.

Anyways, I'm doing good, the incision line doesn't really hurt that bad. Mostly it hurts at the ends and it extends almost all the way around to my back on my sides. It's where the muscles got stitched together and also the drains that pain me. I'm on the sofa propped up and have a pillow under my knees. I'm getting up every couple of hours to walk and just move. The drains get emptied every 8 hours and that task while icky isn't as bad as I would have thought.

I'm not very hungry. I think it's because everything is al squished into me. Seriously, I get very full very fast. Interesting side effect.

Thanks for all the kind words folks!

Glad to hear it's still going well. It must feel good to be home. I wish rotator cuff surgery would've had the same effect on MY appetite! Hope that part lasts awhile for you being you can't move too much!

sounds like things are starting to mend! how long do the drains stay in? be sure to eat something... fruit was easy for me after my surgery, melon especially. good on the fiber uptake too...

Hi Sarah. Sending you healing thoughts. You're a much braver chicka than me.

I'm wondering if you'd mind if I linked your website to ours at Refuse to Regain. Barbara and I are always on the lookout for personal maintenance blogs and would love to add you to our blog roll. I wasn't sure how else to contact you, so I apologize for putting this in a comment. Thanks for considering it.

Wishing you the best as you recover. Lynn

Sarah, you're so brave. I'm glad the recovery is going well - and hope it continues to do so.

Lynn, that's fine, I thought that I had given the okay for that over a year ago when you got started? Maybe it was your blog, either way, link away.
