Good news and bad news... The good news is, I got my staples out Monday. It stung, but I'm over it, and since then, the incision has been more comfortable.
Okay, now the bad news, and lots of it...there are some minor complications. (Would you expect anything else from me at this point?) I had a small infection in my incision by my belly-button, so doc had to cut me open a little bit, drain it out, and put some stuffing down in there. Should be healed up in a week or two, but now some "home health care" people have to come every day to change the stuffing in the wound. My mom was here for the first one, so now we both know how to do it, and next week those guys will only have to come about 3 times a week for the next couple weeks.
Oh, and it gets BETTER!!! He couldn't get the drainage tube out. Apparently it's "hung up" on something internally, whether it's a muscle or the internal stitches, we don't know, so I'll be going for yet ANOTHER CT scan Wednesday morning to find out just WTF. I'm losing hope here, (not to mention even MORE weight), kiddos. I thought Monday would have been IT and I'd just have to wait to heal a little more before going back to work, and now this shit. Doc said that this is pretty rare, and it could take up to 6 weeks for the thing to "work itself out." Either that, or they'll take me to the O.R., sedate me completely, and then pull it out. If THAT doesn't work, then I have to get cut open again in a few months. Till then I have to put up with this stupid tube & bulb hanging off my side. Good times!!!
Where the fuck is my vodka?
Keep the good vibes coming, okay? Hope everything is good in all of your own corners of the world! We had an AWESOME winter storm blow in yesterday, and I did get some pics. I just need to download and all that happy shit. We had snow as low as 3300 ft! That's pretty low for down here. If I am up to it, I'll do my best to get some good shots of snow on the lower mountains. It's really pretty when it does happen.
