I'm feeling really good today all things considered. Last night I was in a lot of pain. Guess what it was? Gas. Can you believe it? Because I can't push a fart out I was in pain. So I sat on the toilet for a while farted like crazy and that eased all the abdominal pressure and I slept like a baby! Aren't you all happy to know that?
Looks like Marc will be making a trip to the drug store today!
When you wear these drains, the goal is for the drainage to go from all bloody to a straw color - the liquid is getting noticeably pinker so I think that's a good sign. My temperature has been around 97, so no infection.
Going to try a sponge bath today and to sit outside for a while. I'm still really tired and any small thing wears me out, but I would think that would be normal.
