I have one drain left, but unfortunately it went UP in draining yesterday! From 140cc's the day before to 180cc's yesterday?!?! WHAT?!?! <sigh> It's the left leg, and it's not so hard to hide in the pant leg if the pant leg is wide...and most of my pant legs are. I plan on going to work tomorrow, was going to go in later but Government is 2 hour delayed! Woot! So then I don't have to take leave. :) Speaking of pants...we went to lunch today, the whole family for like a delayed Valentine's Day lunch...and I put on my old jeans. Here I am thinking I am going to have to wear a belt to hold them up...but noooooooooooo...they fit the exact same! I know I am swollen and everything but I wanted to see at least a little bit of difference!
Corrie and I have plans Friday night to take all the stitches out as long as Dr. S says it's ok. I am sure at least the arm and boob stitches will come out, probably the lower body lift stitches too. It is going to take a while with that many stitches and we'll order dinner and watch a movie while we're doing it I guess. The skin is growing over the stitches a little bit...but we will get them out, hopefully, ha ha. Corrie's sister was excited that Corrie got to do this today, because her sister is studying to be a physicians assistant. Corrie should do something like that too because she has such a strong stomach!
I am going to take some pictures on Thursday...that is three weeks out. I haven't really felt like taking any so far because I am in such a hurry to get my compression garments back on after showering. I am so swollen and he took so much skin that I feel like I am going to bust my stitches! It didn't feel that bad this morning so I think that means the swelling is going down! Yay!
Anyway, next post will probably be with pictures! How exciting! Be prepared!
