COUNTDOWN - 10.5 hours . . .

and only one more dressing change!


I will have drains in for about 10 days (a major pain in the neck, but it goes with the territory). I will also have a catheter delivering a local anesthetic to the donor site (my lower left shoulder blade) for awhile. This will help me go off any pain meds sooner. I will also have a skin graft taken from my left thigh. So, I will likely be uncomfortable, but I know it gets better every day and that's a whole lot better than pain getting worse as it is now.

I'll see (i.e., well, you'll see my words) you all on the flip side!

I hope surgery went well, Dee! I am thinking of you and sending positive thoughts. Heal, Baby, heal! Let's say goodbye to those blasted dressings. :-)
