another outing, appt. tomorrow

Went to the commissary today.  Shuffled around the store like an old lady.  I really hate trying to hide the tube and bulb and hanging my arm out at a wierd angle.  The drain comes out tomorrow!!  I'm confident of that.  My followup appointment is tomorrow and yesterday I had <30ml and today, so far I've only had 15ml.  It probably won't even be a full 10 when I empty it tonight.  Woo-hoo!

I look forward to taking a shower, wearing a bra, if they let me wear a bra, then I look forward to wearing t-shirts!!  Something not buttoned.  I look forward to starting to walk again.  I look forward to sleeping in my cushy bed again!!  I look forward to hugging my children again, without having to push their hands away.

I had the drain from my mastectomy come out a lil too soon, which meant I had to go back to the plastic surgeon every week to have the excess fluid drained via a very large needle and syringe..(cartoonish in size almost lol) just make sure it's good and ready to come out.

Thinking of you....
This brings back so many memories of my aunt...
It was hard on us not being able to give her a
"real" hug too....I would imagine it's very
uncomfortable for you....Wishing you well!
Keep the faith!  =)

I pictured you shuffling around the store and had a little giggle. I hope they are able to remove your drain. It must be so annoying. When I had my port put in, it really hurt to hug so I know what you mean. Hope your having a good day.
