4 days post sugery

Well...It's been a rough ride.  At this point I don't know that I would be able to say that I would do it again...but I am praying that I get to that point.  I am healing just fine...although my drain did come out.  Not much they can do about that - a lot of docs don't even use a drain.  Friday was the hardest day...I kept [praying it was just a bad dream.  Today has been a good day though.  I've rested, played a few games with my friend Sydney, and I may even try a shower later!  WOW!  It's been hard to find a comfy way to sleep.  It's been hard to find food that is tasty.  But in a few more days it will be even better.

Whew...I have now sat up for like 5 minutes in a row...time to go eat my dinner...an ounce of broth, an ounce of jello, and an ounce of something or other...

just wanted to let you know things are going well...

Good to hear from you. Hang in there, major surgery is no small matter. It will take a while to build up strength again, but you will. Take it easy for now.

When you see those pounds leaving forever it will be so worth these hard moments. Can't wait to watch your journey.

Wow. Recovery from surgery is always so hard--and this one sounds pretty significant indeed. Hope you are able to rest for a while longer and not push yourself too much. Looking forward to following your healing journey!
