Let the healing begin

I have been at my parents for two days now. I slept 17 hours the first day and about the same the second. I only have one comfortable position because of the chest tube in the right side and my 10 incision on my left. My Mom helped me bathe today. I shaved my legs, washed my hair, and she washed my left side of my back. This all while covering my chest tube entry on the right side. It was a bit tricky. I haven't puked yet today which I have to say is so painful that your body does it in slow motion to minimize the pain. Today, everything seems to be getting back to normal. I am doing my exercises, eating more, etc. I tire quickly as I am noticing right now I need to stop typing. Jen is coming over to visit tonight after spending the entire week with the boys giving everyone a brake. It has been nice for everyone and the boys are totally in love with her looking for her in the morning (not Grant), wanting her to give them breakfast (not Grant), etc. She goes home tomorrow and, while the boys will be sad, they will just add another amazing friend to the list of people that love them. Thank you Jen! Happy Thursday, Ang

Every day takes you a little bit farther on the road to recovery. I know you'll whoop with joy when you ditch that chest tube.

Happy Birthday you non-tweener. How was not planning your own party? Do you need therapy now or what? I can provide that for you for a very reduced rate.

Now go back to bed!!!! :-)
