Hello everyone. Just wanted to give an update. Five days have gone by and I have been home for a day now. I can get up out of bed by log rolling. I was able to sit on edge of bath and bathe the front of myself. I am eating although bowels won't budge. Starting to worry about that. I can walk outside in the yard for a few moments. Sitting on the couch is uncomfortable. I can come to the computer for a few minutes. Usually he chases me back to bed though. If I stay in bed too long, incision site hurts. So I get in and out. Hair is still a mess.
Today is my beloved son's 19th birthday so it's a happy day in our lives. He is my only child. We are eating like kings and then having cake. Weather is beautiful. I would just like to thank everyone that sent me well wishes right before the surgery. I can't believe how helpful you actually were. This is a very worthwhile site. I am now going to pay it forward and give out words of advice or wisdom here for new people facing what we have gone through.
Thank you for everything.
