Well, I got the big 10-foot long ace bandage off this morning and then the two inches of cotton bandages, and got to see my 12-inch scar covered with staples. It should be a beauty. This one I earned!!
The pain will be there for a while, as the incision was deep, and it is still really swollen. I got up, after they took off the bulky wrap, and had put on this really awesome waterproof bandage, and I took a shower (didn't tell the nurses aides, as I was FINE), and got their wrath afterward. I hate that they think we are all incompetent.
I am going to a care center tomorrow, and the social worker came in last night to ask where i wanted to go. I told her I wanted somewhere with good food, that was not high calorie. She said, define good food. I said, well, if I ask for a salad, it should have no iceberg lettuce in it, and more than one tomato, and dinner should not be a beef dish fried with gravy. She laughed and told me she agreed. I guess there is a new care center open and has been getting rave reviews for their holistic and healthy approach. I hope to be going there!
Every single day will be better, easier, and I will be one day closer to alleviating pain. My darling Daughter visits me today, and I have a list of a few things i want from home, that she will be bringing.
Hope you are all doing wonderfully, and are finding better and more creative things to eat that I have!!
