On the Mend

I thought there might be chance that maybe one or two of you might be wondering how I am doing after all the surgery & hospital drama last week. I've been home for a week now and I am feeling about ten thousand times better! I am back to a normal diet, though I don't plan on going on a cheeseburger bender anytime soon. I had some new blood work done on Monday and my bile levels were just about back to normal, after being more than 4 times what they should have been last week. I checked in with my surgeon on Wednesday and he said I am healing just fine. My abdomen still looks like someone attacked me after a Ginzu knife demo and the top one is still plenty sore. Too much activity does eventually catch up to me later in the day. When I had to tote Micah around in his carseat to Target and then on a couple other errands, I was really hurting by late afternoon. Moving too quickly or stretching too far also causes a good amount of pain. I'm happy to have a sufficient supply of painkillers, let's just put it that way.

All in all, it wasn't the way I would choose to start off my new year, but I'm happy we got the problem taken care of. I just hope we don't have to do anything involving surgery or hospitals again any time soon!
