Hi everyone. Its Friday afternoon and I am lounging on the couch. I took my walk this morning, as my hospital release says I am suppose to, and now I am just relaxing. Amazing how good I feel just 3 days after surgery.
They say it is the walking. Its really hard to get moving, especially at first, and with the belly stitch pain who wants to move, but it does make a huge difference.
I wouldn't have expected this at all.
I even said I might make it into the studio tomorrow to a little easy doodling. No lifting yet though. Not up to that at all.
I came home last evening and it was great to sleep in my own bed and see the dogs. The hubby will be home by this evening. I will be glad when he's back home. I will say the care at Massachusetts General Hospital was outstanding. Everything from the nurses to the doctors. Funny story, one of the nurse trainees was a former student of mine from many years ago and one of my nurses was the cousin of the woman who runs the doggie day where the dogs go and where they stayed while we were in the hospital. It sure is a small world sometimes.
Here's a page in my drawing journal before I went into the hospital. I was stating I was ready for surgery, but now I think I can say I am ready to be home and to recover fully.
Its just good to be back doing some of my normal things. That is the most comforting thing. :)
Wishing you all a wonderful weekend.
