I hope everyone has had a great weekend. Mine has been spent walking hallways and resting. I also think it's important to mention this little fact. Oct 6th, 2010 was the date of when I had my original mole removed. Who knew my next 2 years would involved surgeries, chemo, etc. Protect the skin you're in!
Ok, I've been living life pretty big too in the last 2 years :)
On to the update -
This is a quote I always think about when I go thru something like this - I mean who doesn't Love Winnie the Pooh?
So far I seem to be doing well. Saturday I got on the liquid diet. Yep - see the fine menu below!
Thanks friends for the flowers! Very thoughtful of you.
This little machine may look familiar to some. When I had my VAT's procedure I needed to use this to make sure my lungs were functioning properly. Basically it helps me start coughing - which hurts like all heck! That's probably the most painful thing so far - coughing. Ouch! But it's important to get your lungs clear and up and walking.
So for those wondering how I'm feeling - so far so good. Tomorrow my epidural should come out. That will be nice because I would LOVE a shower! Still can't go home until we know things are moving again. The good news is that my stomach is growling a lot and I am passing gas (sorry for TMI folks - but it's part of the healing process...).
Tonight they also disconnected the fluid IV I was getting. Since I am eating and drinking on my own. So while I still have the IV in my hand (just in case they need it) it's one less line to try and trip over while I'm up and walking.
Have a great night. I'll update more when I know more. It will take 7-10 days from surgery to get the official pathology report back.
