I have never really appreciated my home and my freedom as much as I do today.
The freedom to eat what I want and when I want.
To sleep without being awoken.
To snuggle my puppies.
I have been home a little over 24 hours, and to be honest, I’ve spent most of it sleeping.
Maybe it’s the fatigue from only sleeping three hours a night, or maybe it’s relief from getting to rest in my own bed….but I am more tired than I’ve ever been in my life.
Vic the Vac and I came home.
No more surgery.
Just 8 weeks of having a machine hanging out with me.
Vic is mostly annoying.
He sits there making farting sounds and can’t even be bothered to say ‘excuse me.’
But he works. Here’s a quick rundown about Vic the Vac (otherwise known as a KCI VAC).
Since I’m at home, essentially on bedrest, I need something to fill the minutes between naps.
One of my favorite nurses, Lara, suggested that I learn to make hats for babies in the NICU. Apparently there’s always a shortage.
So that’s what I did today.
That’s about it for an update. I’m learning to rest.
That’s all I can do. Rest and heal.
