I'm 24 days post surgery today, it feels much longer than that really. It's the last day for my blood thinner injections...yay! My home health care nurse discharged me this morning and my therapist will do the same this afternoon. Both are really pleased with my progress.
I went to my primary care doctor's visit Wednesday. She was happy with everything. I was most happy with the scale this time around....I know, I think that's a first. Anywho, I'm down 15 pounds since my last visit a month ago. I wish I could say it was intentional but it's not. Please Lord, help me keep the weight off. It will be in my best interest for sure. I've not been very hungry and I'd like to keep it that way.
I start outpatient therapy next Wednesday, so until then I will continue with what my therapist has had me doing. I hope they will be pleased but still really push to get better results.
Preferred Home Care came to pick up the CPM machine on Wednesday. It was kind of bittersweet. I got up to 112 degrees of bending on it, and I can't get there myself. I know it's almost impossible to do it, but I really didn't mind staying on the machine for hours and hours a day because I knew I wasn't forming scar tissue that would interfere with movement.
I'm feeling kinda weird that people won't be coming to check on me...but I"m sure its a good thing because they wouldn't release me if I wasn't ready. There's still a long way to go.
I'd like to thank Connie, Vanessa, and Leanne for all your support. I really appreciate you all and the work you do.
