The long-awaited, heavily anticipated day finally arrived, the first day of school! Thankfully, both girls had a great day. We had some struggles last year with Meg’s teacher so she was worried heading in but came home thrilled.
Madison was ready to go at 7am this morning although the bus was not until 9am. She loved that she got 30 minutes alone with us between her bus and Megan’s. She was so great, bus came she looked at me waved and said “bye Mom” and up the steps she went. I knew she would be like that so I made her give me a big hug before we went down for the bus. She waved happily from the window as the bus pulled away, then I was alone. Walking home I might have shed a little tear but part was sad that my babies were growing up but the other was just how proud I am of who they are becoming!
Since I had to go to the bus stop this morning I got up and took a shower, my first full shower in two weeks which felt wonderful! I got dressed including a bra. I put on an old sport bra which is pretty close to the right size. I am still so swollen on the sides it is hard to tell what size I really am. Due to the incisions under my arms and the bruising I still have from the lipo, I can only express my feelings on wearing the bra as down right painful. And since I have to be a fully functioning member of society I must remain narcotic free during the day.
Frank stopped at VIctoria Secrets yesterday on his way home as a surprise. I have not been able to shop there in years due to size. I still have the steri strips so I will save my new fancy bra for a few days. I cleaned out my drawer yesterday and in doing so realized I was a 40 DDD prior to surgery. No wonder I had such back issues! I know that each day will be a little better.
I need to get my stamina back up. I am wiped out! Bus stops, laundry and some other things around the house, dinner and soccer practice should not do me in like this. The highlight of my day was getting home taking a vicodine and getting my bra off…ahh the little things in life!
