This afternoon they took both the drains out. Mom said it was “weird” to watch them pull them out since they were much longer than she thought they would be. I told her it was weirder to have them pulled out since I could feel them uncoil as the nurse was pulling them out. I was glad I thought to take a lot of painkillers before the appointment.
I’m having some issues with the new smallness of my chest. I know it will be good but every time I look down I feel like half of me is missing. Once I can dress normally and stuff again I’m sure it’ll be ok but for now I’m trying not to panic and think they are too small now. I know it’s odd for someone to blog about their breasts but we all knew I was odd, right?
It’s been hard not being able to take care of Dieter. Next week he’ll be back up with Nic and Kelly. Even if I could lift him right now I’m not sure I would trust myself. The medication has me VERY loopy and I’m totally out of it. While there is a lot of pain it’s not as bad as the abscess was so I’m dealing with it pretty well. I’m pretty sure once the pain meds are gone it’ll be worse but for now as long as I don’t move a lot I’m doing ok.
