Thank you everyone. I can speak my thoughts and feelings freely here as I know you understand, footprints have been here before mine made imprints. It is a relief to be able to share ❤️I am still in hosp, they are not pushing to send me home. I have a great surgeon.I had to remove the padded dressings we placed yesterday as the dressing tapes we used all gave me an allergic reaction. I took it as my body asking me to take a breather and look, to reconnect and rejoin, to do the ‘together thing’, allowing healing to happen from the inside out. That’s the place of where the weeping begins. Tears rolled as gently as my heart beat ...a calm sadness. It will be ok, a wave of inner strength will emerge...slowly and lovingly. For us all 🍃🦋🍃💞🍃
How are you going today?
It’s a huge thing that you have been through, just having significant surgery as you have will take its toll and on top of that the sense of loss is significant. You are bound to be emotional and teary. You are definitely not weak – be gentle on yourself. Have plenty of rest when you get home – is there someone who can help you in the first few days? Something that may be helpful for home that I used was a plastic bunnings type chair that I put in the shower so that I could just sit and shower – that way if you are feeling tired or just not up to standing for too long you can sit and relax a little. Make sure that you put your feet up and snooze or read a book during the first couple of weeks at home, I think that the rest is really helpful. I hope that you are ok.
