SO I sit here in a nice quiet house. Actually slept for about a 4 hour stretch. I woke up in some real discomfort but I think I can say not pain exactly.
Did I mention that Frank moved our guest bed downstairs to the family room for me so I did not have to climb stairs? And my powder room is now filled with my necessities? Very handy! I am still getting used to getting into and out of a non hospital bed but at lease I can do it on my own!
I took the opportunity to empty my drains. Not too bad 17ml total in 12 hours. My girls have been wonderful but I am still trying to keep some things completely from them. The drains are really something. A much-needed yet totally uncomfortable and honesty very disgusting need. I have put together an outfit with and undershirt underneath one of Franks short sleeve button downs. I can pin the drains to the undershirt with the girls not having a clue that they exist.
Guess I should wiggle my way back into my bed. I am still doing the breathing exercises from the hospital. Not sure if I am supposed to or not but figure they sure can’t hurt! I will post some pics of my new family/bed/hospital room soon.
Today I get my first home health care nurse visit.
