i came home from hospital yesterday. i’m moving slowly but i’m encouraged by the fact that i have more range of motion than i had before surgery. I may regret moving my arm around so much once this numbing agent wears off.
i kinda feel bad that i haven’t kept personally in touch w/ most of ya’ll. i do appreciate all your thoughts & prayers & calls & notes
[NOTE UPDATE: as of 11/08/17, im definitely feeling the “yup i had surgery “ and i cannot do too much. but on the flipside of that, i can do a bit more everyday & i’m starting to feel a little more human 😉
many of ya’ll have asked if i’m up for visitors… i think so. give me/us a holler & make sure i’m up
[MORE NOTES: i won’t be hugging you. i have stitches around the middle-left side of my neck, completely under my left arm (entire armpit area), halfway down the back of my left arm and my left side/back area. i also look as if i’ve been mauled along both arms, hands, chest & stomach. These are from the needle prick things the used to detect nerve status during surgery (glad i was unconscious). they also blew 3-4 veins w/ iv’s, failed at drawing blood multiple attempts & i had to have shots in my stomach instead of xarelto. i look like i lost a fight w/ a bull 🙂 ]
