It seems like years........

Ok, so I know it has only been 2 wks and 5 days, but it sure feels like longer. I thought I'd get to start exercising this week but not yet. I had to go to the doctor yesterday coz the right breast is running like I have a broken faucet and the left is swelled and red. The doctor took a swab for culture of three different sights. He actually cut my incision open a little on the right with scissors. Didn't feel a thing. I don't let anybody bump them coz I don't know how bad it will hurt. The doctor has other ideas. He squiahes them and makes the fluid come out. OUCH!!!!!! I could actually feel the fluid run out of the right side. He put me on Levaquin 500mg for 10 days. I hope that does the job. I woke up this morning and there was fluid all over my bed and my bandages and bra were soaked. I got up and changed it . My DH works nights and he came to bed to a crying wife. Sometimes it is all too much. I just want one thing to go right the first time. Yes I'm being a baby and right now I don't care. Tomorrow I'll probably be better but for this moment I need to cry. I told my DH that I really only did this to take the pressure off my back, which it has. But I don't want to look ugly at the end either. I may be 51 but how I look still matters. How my DH feels about how I look still matters to me. He was so good this morning. He put his arm around me and said we just need to give it time. The infection will clear up and the swelling will go down. Then he proceeded to talk about other things and got my mind off of it. He is really good about stuff like that.
I go to the doctor on Friday to talk about the cultures, so I won't know more until then. I guess this to shall pass.
