I have a whole garden in my room! Thank you all so much for all of your love and support. I feel like a celebrity! 💁🏼
Depending on my pain level, I may be able to go home today. This has its pros and cons. Obviously I’d rather be at home healing in my own bed. But at the same time, I still feel like I need assistance and supervision with getting up and around and controlling pain meds etc. Also the drains that are attached to me thoroughly gross me out, so I’m not sure that I’m quite ready to be emptying them on my own. So, I’m just trying to take today moment by moment without putting pressure or expectation on myself. That’s hard for me-getting rid of the “shoulds”. Especially because I’m used to being able to doing what I want to, when I want to do it. This is definitely giving me a greater appreciation for what my body is normally capable of. I cannot wait to be healed enough to be able to do some yoga! That first session after all of this nonsense is going to be so much more appreciated, because I will be so thankful for all that my body is able to do.
Also, please just look at my room. It’s the largest room in the hospital, and I was told by the nursing staff that it’s a VIP room. It’s basically like a hotel suite:
