T3: Tummy Tuck Timeline, Wednesday

Yesterday was a bad one, peeps. Maybe worse than Monday because I didn't have so many drugs in my system. Every time I got up to use the bathroom my hips where the drains are felt like the searing pain of 10,000 burning suns. Okay, maybe not QUITE that dramatic, but they hurt like a mutha, especially the left one. The drainage is decreasing each day, which is good - mayhaps they will remove them Friday (fingers crossed) because once that bridge is crossed, from what I understand, I will feel mucho better-o.
Didn't do much other than sit in my recliner, sleep, eat, watch ANTM, and cruise the information superhighway. Talked to a few people on the phone, and it is AMAZING how much that can perk a person up.

I am eating pretty much anything I can (within reason), since I have yet to have a well, you know, ummmm, a number two? I haven't dropped a deuce? you catch my drift. Not to mention we're out of colace, so hopefully the Hubs can pick somma dat up today. WHAT? It's all part of the pipes down there, and if my recollection after my c-section is any indication, I am NOT looking forward to it AT ALL. Jesus, take the wheel.

Anypoop, thank you for all the well wishes you have made. I know I haven't replied to any so I'm doing it here. I sincerely appreciate them, and it makes my day every time I see one.

Mwah!

Heidi - thank you so much. It doesn't sound stalkerish at all, and it DID make me laugh, which also felt like a stitch popped, so thank YOU.

LOL! I hope the first download is not painful (who knew poop could be so horrifying - never did I dread it as much as after I gave birth. and rightly so, does the phrase "shards of glass" ring any bells and that was with colace.) Thinking about you and hope those darn drains come out by Friday. If you have any leftover pain meds just send them my way - kidding, just kidding - sort of...

How do you stay so funny during a time like this. It's truly a gift!
Just keep your eyes on the prize. You did this for a reason. Just milk it for all it's worth in the mean time. Maybe you need a foot massage too. :)

Been keeping up on your TT Chronicles! And after having a 10 lb 7 oz child, I am living this adventure through you. Keeping you in my thoughts and prayers that all continues to go well! Heal quickly and may the force be with you...XOXO!

Shanny Shan Shan....my head has apparently been up my ass! I haven't even checked in to see how the surgery went. Shame. On. Me. I just read everything and got all caught up. Glad to see that you are doing well minus the presence of numero dos. Wishing you a speedy recovery! xoxox

Good luck with those shards of glass (as Jenny so perfectly put it) coming out of your nether regions.

I grimace at your drain pain--so sorry. Hope you're doing better now and let us know when...the eagle has landed? xoxxo
