I'm feeling SOOOOOOO much better now! Thanks for all your sweet comments and for checking in on me :) It was really rough going for quite a few days there. The home health nurse came yesterday and said everything looks great at the incision site - that drain tube is ready to come out. That will probably happen sometime before the end of this week.
OK, so I'm a little embarrassed to admit this but yesterday was the first day since I had surgery that I actually got dressed in "REAL" clothes - not just pajamas or casual 'wear-it-only-around-the-house' clothes. (C'mon, you know what I'm talking about...those favorite pair of sweats you wouldn't be caught dead wearing outside your house! hehe) Anyway, my son Tyler played chauffeur for the day and took me to the grocery store. Let me tell ya, it's bad enough laying around on the couch but it's even worse laying around on the couch being hungry with nothing that sounds too appetizing! (Somehow saltine crackers or ramen noodles just didn't cut it.) Yes, I DESPERATELY needed to grocery shop! I felt a great sense of accomplishment last night after our trip to the store :)
The doctor who performed my lymph node surgery called me yesterday with the pathology report...GREAT NEWS!!! All of the lymph nodes tested NEGATIVE for cancer...whoooo hoooooo!!!!! Oh yeah, doin' the happy dance :) Sometimes I feel like I'm playing Monopoly...now I can advance to the next space - which, in this case, will be radiation. ha ha Yep, things are moving right along and I am very happy about that.
Oh, and I recently won a giveaway hosted by Michele @ Country Vintage blog so I'll have to share a picture of the goodies. Thanks again, Michele...LOVE everything!
Have a WONDERFUL WEDNESDAY!!!!
