And oh ya: I'M HOME!
WOO FRIGGING HOO!
I got home Friday night! They discharged my ass so fast on Friday that it was pretty overwhelming and completely satisfying. I was going crazy in the hosp and getting depressed, and let me be honest when i say my progress since being home and skyrocketed astronomically!
Minus today, i'm still not dressed, i look really frazzled and i've been on the couch all day. But i think that's allowed. I did order my new medicAlert tho so that's good!
I have a lot of pain today. Not substantially more....it's more that i am getting more feeling back into my chest than anything, but it's nothing that T2 can't handle. The only prob is, i can't open any bottles myself. Oh well. No fear of overdosing.
Being home - if only for the weekend - has been so good for me. I am doing a lot more walking and i have no residual swelling in my ankles. I don't walk so much like an ogre any more, but i walk slow still. But hey, it's better than sitting and letting myself melt into the couch!
In other happy news: I HAD A SHOWER FOR THE FIRST TIME IN 2 WEEKS YESTERDAY! HURRAY HURRAY! I no longer feel like i smell like i've been festering in an onion patch for 2 weeks! Friday saw my first step into liberation when i shaved my armpits. And yesterday, thanks to dad and his speedy run to the store to pick up and ultra dignifying shower chair, i had my first shower! All 45 glorious minutes of it! Minus the part where i slipped getting out and mum grabbed me under the boob and tugged my incision a little bit....it was freeing. I feel like i can emerse myself back into society and not offend people with my odour. YAY
No more nausea either! I can go to the bathroom like a big girl, i can dress myself, feed myself, self medicate...it's grand. I still have trouble sleeping, since i can't roll around like a freak and sprawl yet, but i know that will come in time. I had a bit of a scare in the middle of the night when i woke up and my chest hurt. I guess i fell back into old habits and was breathing shallow out of habit. It was tres weird.
Sorry if my last entry was weird. I was partially with it. Before being released into the computer room, my nurse drugged me with oxy for pain and then motrin for nausea, so to say that I was higher than a kite is pretty accurate. Add to that the vomitting sporadically on the floor and I'm not sure how much sense my entry made. I know it was quite repetative. It didn't help that the nurse also just left me to fend for myself for over an hour, but oh well, it's done and I am home and I am happy.
The parents are in TO collecting the keys for our place! So i am enjoying just loafing and catching up on things. I hope you are all well! Now that i'm out and have my lappy back I will be able to update more frequently!!
Have a great weekend! THANK YOU ALL FOR ALL YOUR SUPPORT AND COMMENTS!! I IFEEL THE LOVE AND I HOPE U FEEL IT BACK!
