First off, I'll update you guys on my progress. I am feeling really good today. My energy level is slowly coming back. Although I've done really well in my recovery, I have noticed how easily I tire out and that my energy isn't where it used to be. This morning I am really full of energy, which is good, because I think we're going to plant our vegetable garden today!
The incision continues to look good, but I can feel it at all times. It kind of feels like I'm wearing a tight rubber band. It's definitely an odd feeling. I'm sure this will go away once the scar starts to relax a bit. Also, the seroma is nearly gone. I can barely see any fluid in the morning. By night when the swelling is way up it is a little more noticeable, but it looks like my body has done it's job and absorbed the fluid. Good job, body!
Now let's talk about compliments. Those of you that know me know that I have a really hard time taking compliments. It makes me really uncomfortable. Yesterday we went to the calling hours for Marc's aunt and I wore one of my new dresses. It is a flattering dress. But I was really uncomfortable with the amount of compliments I was getting. I feel like people must think I'm being falsely modest or something, but I'm really not. I just am not used to or comfortable with people saying how good I look, etc. Plus, I see all the flaws, so when someone says "You look amazing" I am thinking - "yeah, except for" and then I list stuff in my head.
Someone tell me to get over myself LOL
