This is how I am healing, slowly but surely. I know that I am 100% better now than what I was 2 weeks ago, but I am feeling really impatient to be totally back to normal. Although at this point nothing is really painful (I haven't been on pain medicine since I have been home) my incision is still really sore, especially by the end of the day.
My mom left today after being here for 2 weeks, there is no way we could have done this without her. When preparing for this surgery I really didn't think that I would need the full 2 weeks to recover, ha! If she would have volunteered to stay another week I would have agreed in an instant. Although I am now able to lift Anna I can't lift her alot and I get tired really easy, I rely on my nap every afternoon to keep me going. I am glad that besides mom work, which is alot of work, I am not having to return to a 40 hour a week job. So I guess what I am trying to say is I would encourage people to expect at least a full 2 weeks for recovery when having this surgery.
