*waves carefully from Connecticut* I finally got home yesterday and I have to confess, as was true for Dorothy after her ruby slippers trip, “There’s no place like home.”
I am wrapped up with bandages, sutures, dressings, ace bandages on the arms and a compression binder around the middle. Oh, and there are four drains for the tummy part. Pain in the butt, and everywhere else in that general area.
Tomorrow is my first follow up appointment and I’m hoping I will come home with a bit less of everything currently bound around me and greater clarity about what they actually did. The plan was to remove skin only but apparently they also did some muscle contouring which sounds good but is pretty hard to pin down.
Right now it hurts to get up from almost anything (chairs, couch, and the bed). Getting up into bed was pretty funny as well, especially with Tessie watching and wondering where her place went.
I definitely need this week off and look forward to enforced quiet.
