Still Healing

I slept all night again, not waking up until Kevin did at 4:15.  One drain could technically come out, but I'll have the second until at least Friday, and I can't see driving to Leawood twice just go get rid of an aggravation a couple of days early.

Showering is coming easier to me, and no longer takes me 40 minutes to complete.  I'm almost like a normal person.  The drains are a pain, but I'm getting better at dealing with those, too.  The worst thing was when I realized that, when they swap the tissue expander for the actual implant, I'll have 1 or 2 drains AGAIN!   ARRGGGG!

Everything is a process, and these pains are just the annoying parts.  People are fixing dinner for us left and right, I'm able to do dishes, and Kevin is keeping up with the laundry, letting me avoid stairs.  We're getting along just fine.  I am down to just one spot that hurts pretty bad most of the time.  I think it's a combo of the bottom of the tissue expander and one of the drain tubes.

Maybe I'll slap some TMI pictures up here later.  Then we'll take bets on how many people faint.  :)

Well, if they faint, they can't say they weren't warned.

I'M SO GLAD YOU ARE DOING SO WELL.. YOU ARE COMING RIGHT ALONG. I KNEW YOU WOULD FLY THROUGH THIS AND MAKE IT LOOK LIKE IT'S NOTHING. ALLTHOUGH I KNOW THERE ARE HARDER TIMES THEN OTHERS AND WE DON'T GET TO SEE THAT BUT YOUR ATTITUDE IS SO WONDERFUL. I JUST KNEW THAT WOULD PULL YOU THROUGH THIS.
GO AHEAD AND POST SOME PIC'S. I PROMISE I WON'T FAINT..
