Day Three: Post Surgery

Sore. Sore. Sore.

I think I jumped the gun on weaning off the pain meds. I woke up this morning feeling pretty rough. Jon quickly got me a pain pill & 800mg Ibuprofen. Popped those puppies and immediately iced. This was about 5:30 this morning. I was able to get back to sleep, thankfully.

When I woke up around 8:00 I was feeling much better.

I had asked the hubs yesterday if we could adventure outside the house this afternoon so I can get a mani/pedi....he agreed but only if I rested all morning. He gave me strict instructions not to do anything but rest. Sounds like a dream, eh? I have to say, it's been much harder than I thought it would be. Im getting severe cabin fever.

My life has become this...

And this.....

But my happiness with the results WAY outweighs any other complaint!! I find myself staring at the boobs in the mirror, thinking they are foreign objects that don't belong to me. I know, creepy.

On closing, the main thing ive noticed over the past 12 hours or so is how itchy I feel. I think my body is getting tired of the tape, stitches and foreign tubes hanging off of it.
