{Recovery Part 1}

Tuesday, May 3, 2011
Wow, so it's been a while. Exactly last Monday I went in for surgery. Most of you know I had a corrected umbilical hernia, as well as, a tummy tuck... YIKES! The good news is that it went wonderful. I couldn't have asked for better doctors, nurses, and family for help. It obviously wasn't a pain free recovery. It's very intense. I have a lot of bruising and swelling yet, but today was a good day overall. I got both drains out (most unpleasant things ever) and although taking them out feels like being hit in the head with a baseball bat, it's SO much better afterwards.

Tonight I feel as though I have a little more freedom. I am walking around with out a walker at about a 45 degree angle (the past I had to be at a 90 degree angle all the time.) I am able to wean myself off the meds fairly easy, so it's been overall smooth sailing. I still have a lot to go, but in a months time, I should be back to doing most of my normal activities ... which I am looking forward too.

Tomorrow I have another doctor's appointment, so pray everything goes well there too! Thanks for all the kind words and emails, it's been so appreciated!

Hope everyone is having a great start to their MAY!

Glad you are doing good and are in good spirits, just remember to PACE YOURSELF. DO NOT, do not, do not rush it and push it!
