Dos Semanas

Two weeks until I can drive. That can't come soon enough. Getting better and doing well, but starting to go really stir crazy.

I went to the store today!!

Went to Sams Club today with my mom- walked around quite a bit. It was GREAT to get out of the house. I didn't pick anything up and I stopped a few times to sit down for a few minutes and rest (luckily there are lots of recliners/ comfy chairs around the sams club) but it was great just walking around looking at stuff and convincing my mom to buy me things. We got a bag of 5 avocados which I am super excited about! I have been seriously missing avocados since I left Texas...they were so cheap and so fresh and so good...mmmmmmmmmmmm.

getting better, getting bored

Hey all,
I am getting better and better and stronger and stronger everyday. I'm walking about 15-20 minutes a day on the treadmill and hope to start going longer and longer in the coming days. Hopefully it will warm up here soon and I can do some outside walking too- I am getting pretty tired of sitting around the house! Went out to lunch this weekend and it was great to get out of the house- even if I had to come home and take a long nap. I am still kind of sore but it's more discomfort than pain at this point. I am still having a lot of trouble getting comfortable and sleeping at night but it is getting easier. I am still having to sleep basically sitting up which is just killin me as a formal stomach sleeper. All is basically well here- getting better and better everyday and more and more bored of sitting around the house.
Thanks again for your support everyone!

Getting better!

Feeling better and better everyday. I've got a ways to go but everyday is a little bit better. Everyone has been so nice and supportive. I have gotten some beautiful flowers that I am really enjoying. My dad is getting me a membership at his gym so I can go there and walk and eventually ride the bike and workout and get back into shape. I think we are going to go down tomorrow so I can walk on the treadmill for awhile (it's just to cold for me to get my walks in outside right now).

I was released from the hospital around noon on Sunday and made it home a couple of hours later. I still feel like a mammoth stomped on my chest but it is so so so so so much better being home and so nice having my kitty by my side again (even though I keep having to block him from stepping on my chest (he's trying to lick my face!)). My biggest struggle right now is trying to sleep. It's really hard to get comfortable and the pain meds im taking keep making me have hot flashes and chills. I've also been having some really whacky dreams.

Hey everyone!

This is Rebecca updating on my own for my first time since surgery! I'm doing pretty good, other than feeling like i got kicked really hard in the chest by a really pissed off horse with really big feet. They took out the last chest tube earlier today and I feel a lot better with those gone. I am going to be getting a blood transfusion tonight because my blood counts are kinda low- I should feel alot better after that. I will be getting a chest x-ray tomorrow morning and if that goes well then hopefully I will be released tomorrow afternoon! I haven't had a chance to read all the comments and such yet but thanks for your support everyone. hope you are all doing well.

Yea dilaudid!

The Beja is doing better all the time. Today,the neck line was removed which seems to be a very big deal,and precipitated a brief return to dilaudid. Percocet now. She is walking a little and eating a very little and barfing a bit. But,keeps getting better and better. We are on track to go home this weekend if nothing unexpected happens.
Most importantly,the loot is rolling in with a special bear she is now hugging to her incision.

She is not quite phoneworthy but wants me to thank those of you who have been so supportive. She will be in touch soon. I am reading your posts to her. Momja
