This'll be yet another quick post to hopefully launch me into posting more often. I finally arrived home on Thursday late afternoon, and I have been enjoying the joys, rest and calm of home along with the very busy busy busy ness of taking my meds and exercising and resting. Like a lot of other post-transplanters, I actually am finding the pills easy to manage compared to home IVs or nebulizers or the bipap nap - but the meds themselves (and still some pain meds) make me tired in the head, and the exercise and general rebuild-CG-plan (uh... plus the 5 surgeries) make me pretty sore in the morning.... til like noon. Then I feel pretty good the rest of the day.
My mom and I are having a pretty good time learning how to cook with less fat, and after so many weeks of barely eating at all, I'm finding that low fat or no-fat foods taste yummy enough to me. Weird.
I've started scar lotions for ALL of my scars from the IV lines, drains, and surgeries. Aye Aye Aye. I swear it looks like a baby bird made footprints across from stomach from the drain scars and their stitches' scars. But they are going away.... they will go away!! My BIG scar still has some of the staples in it, so it has not yet begun to be potioned or lotioned, but I think it's going to heal very very well.
So that's my story for today. Goodnight!!
