I was able to get up early but not before family came over. Both my aunts came and stayed for hours. My cousins were.over too so our kitchen was full. I had three cups of coffee. My mother bought pizza for us. It was a nice lunch. Then my cousin took me to get my prescriptions. I also got dark chocolate eggs as I really wanted them. I love dark chocolate.
When I came home, one aunt left. The other one was on the phone with dryer repair center. She left after the phone call. As she was leaving, she took hold of my face and thanked me for caring for my mother and then started crying. She is so dramatic.
I am feeling depressed today. Just want to be hiding in my room. I woke up in the middle of the night in pain. My foot/ankle was throbbing. I read for three hours as I didn’t know what else to do. I didn’t feel like coloring. I didn’t want to be on my phone. Besides it had been a while since I picked up the book.
I joined a top surgery support group on Facebook and got information about how it will be post op. I think I can manage on my own. I am just worried I won’t be able to wipe myself in the bathroom. They recommended I get shower wipes. I had some but don’t remember where I put them. I put them in the “place I will remember” drawer/cabinet whatever. They also recommended a wedge pillow which I have. I guess sleeping sitting up is going to be a thing for a few days. I am expecting it as I will have drains for a week. I just hope I don’t get dog ears. Surgery is in 28 days. I cannot fricken wait.
I have my pdoc and therapy appt tomorrow. Going to be a busy day. Snow is in the forecast so I don’t think we will have company. That is our saving grace at this point. I forgot to get half and half. Might brace the weather tomorrow if it isn’t icy out to get some more. I have PT on Wed so I can get it then, too.
