Hate to sound like a broken recorded, but I was to the wound care specialist yesterday. The redness is disappearing nicely and my blood work came back A OK. What a difference a couple of days makes. I will continue to go through this wound care every Monday and Thursday for a while until the VAC comes off. (small machine for suction of the wound. I have a lot of pain at the suction site this morning, possible the hose pulled while sleeping. I'll have Jake look at it when he wakes up. I can't see it.
Here's a laugh for you...they have told me I have no belly button anymore. Jake says it too. Possible its true, but I'm not easily convinced till I see it....no belly button, that's a laugh! Anyways according to them, I continue to heal but must be patient as I guess I was in real bad shape when I entered the hospital. It was a lengthy surgery and difficult.
Here is another funny for you, while in ICU I remember flicking the ashes off my cigarette and then rushing to catch them. I would wake from a daze with a smile on my face that it wasn't true! The action felt so real though.
I am so thankful that I never turned back, as tempting as it was at times. Especially when I first got sick. Miserable as I was, a smoke, in my mind, would have made things all better. Yeah Right what a lie, huh. I'm 98 DOF today and I'm happy despite my pain. Have a wonderful smoke free day and do remind yourselves that smoking does not help a thing!
