Well, here were are, 2 weeks and 2 days following surgery.
I've come to the conclusion that healing generates a lot of heat. I don't have a fever, but boy do I get warm... REALLY warm... when I'm sleeping.
Staples are out, and while it feels better to have the metal out of my belly, things are still really tender.
I also have my driving privileges back, but now after my doctor told me what (who) to watch our for, I'm still scared to get out there. One little accident (they happen all the time) and POP! I'm splattered all over the window. I think I'll skip it unless I really, really need to get out for something.
The hard part now is allowing myself time to heal. From what I've read and been told by my surgeon, it's going to be 5 to 6 months before this cut is healed...well... the cut and all the internal stuff too. I feel like Veruca Salt... "I WANT IT NOW!"
