It is week 2 of recovery, and it has been fairly eventful. Well, as eventful as lying around like a slug can be anyways...Luckily I have had a small friend who has been loyally by my side. Clark has been glued to my side since I returned home - giving me lots of snuggles and kisses. I firmly believe animals help you heal, and this little guys is no exception.

I had my first post-op appointment on Wednesday, which I breifly tweeted about, so this might be redundant for some. But I got my drains out which is super exciting! (TMI alert!) For the last 10 days I have had 3 drains attached to my body to allow the excess blood and fluid to exit my body from the surgery site. There were 2 on the left side (aka that evil side that caused all the problems on Dday), and 1 on the right side. I had a problem with bleeding, so obviously it took longer than expected to finally get rid of my 3 little friends. But 10 days later and they are finally gone. It feels so much better!

I have been struggling to eat properly since the surgery. The meds have caused some digestive issues and my my appetite has been less than stellar. But I am slowly trying to get back on track. This week I am going to focus on incorporating more...
- Beans and Lentils
- Dark Leafy Greens
