The Road to Recovery
Saturday was a big day because I got to take my first shower. Dr. K stitched the 2 incisions from the inside (not really sure how that works) and then sealed them with a surgical glue on the outside so everything is waterproof. I don't even have any bandages. I do have extremely limited use of my left arm so I did need some assistance from Brad post shower. He's considering taking his entrepreneurial efforts in the direction Salon de Bradley! He and I took a tag team approach to blow drying my hair. I style with my right arm and he wields the blow dryer. After 3 days, he is becoming quite proficient! Though my hair has had better "hair days", it's presentable to the public and I don't feel too out of sorts. And Brad has also mastered the art of the pony tail!
So far I'm feeling really good. Granted I'm not out at the gym or anything, but I have been making at least one daily outing. Friday we went to the Original Pancake House for breakfast, Saturday was a big day and we went to Target, Home Depot and Barnes and Noble and stopped for quick lunch. I admit I was little worn out, but came home and rested on the couch for the next 5 hours where I watched a couple of netflix movies.
