Sat and Sun I was in alot of pain sitting up and going to the bathroom was the worst part.
Today Monday I have to say the pain is a lot less. The drains are very uncomfortable and sleeping is not easy. The pain meds make me very drowsy. It is hard when you have to sleep sitting up with lots of pillows behind your back and under your knees.

Less pain than yesterday, did not take any pain...

Less pain than yesterday, did not take any pain tablets because I just hate how it makes me feel and today the pain isnt that bad, still taking my antibiotics and the ones for the swelling/brusing. My butt hurts from sitting. I can't stand for too long my back hurts like crazy. Coughing hurts too I am taking delysum which helps alot. Thank God I am staying with my aunt and she is a great help.

I am doing good. I'm not able to stand up straight...

I am doing good. I'm not able to stand up straight yet.....it's scary and the feeling of the skin pulling when I stand.....boy my back is killing me because of bending foward when I stand. Thank goodness I don't have much pain and dont have to take the pain tablets (oxycod generic of percocet). If I have to I will take advil liquid gel. This site has been a true blessing to me.

Today my doc removed the drains, I am soooo happy they are out, he took only a few seconds, it felt weird but did not hurt.

One week today........Yayyyy and it gets better everyday. I am taking a peek every now and then, so far I like what I see, can't wait to see the final results. I've been able to stand up alot better this morning however at night It's been hard sleeping. I never could have slept on my back before and find it so uncomfortable, when I strech out I feel the lower skin pulling and streching it is not a good feeling and I get very little sleep at night. Thank God I survived the first week!!!

Went home today after staying with my aunt for one week, she really took great care of me.....God Bless her.
My mom lives with me and she will be helping out with my two kids and the cooking. I am so happy to be home and my kids are happy to have their mommy back. I never spend a night away from them before. I was a bit nervous to walk in the door, my husband did not even say a word to me. I took a shower and it felt so good but after an hour I was sore and a little swollen. I am feeling a little down because since I came home my husband havent spoken to me. Men?????? I am sure he had a good time when I was gone watching porn and drinking......yes.....he always buying them hiding and watching them when I am asleep. Men are so lucky they dont have to make babies and feel what we feel.....and have to deal with a muffin top, streched muscels and strech marks from being pregnancy.
He did not approved of my TT but it's my body and I paid for my TT with my money. Thank God I worked, saved my money and I could do this for myself. I love my kids and my mom they are everything to me. Only a woman would understand. God Bless.

FUNNY.....my daughter said mommy you need to put two bandaid on your belly when she saw my stomach. And boy she is doing a good job keeping me company since I came home.
Feels good to sleep on my bed again, lastnight I got the best night sleep since my TT and been feeling pretty good with the pain, the area does feel num. I am wearing my own binder that I had purchased from Modells for exercising that is alot more comfortable than the one they gave me. Today I feel like eating KFC. Have a Blessed Day!!!

10 days and I feel GREAT!!! This morning I was looking at my stomach in the mirror and I love my new tummy I love what I see and I feel like a brand new person. I wish I could share this special moment with my husband but still waiting for him to come around, our conversations are very short and they are about our kids....that's it, he has never showned any support or concern about me up to now. We have been together 15 years now with two kids and I just don't know if he is insecure or what??? Every man should want their woman to look and feel good. Have a Blessed Day Everyone!!!

I am doing great!!! I have to say my hubby is finally coming around.....little by little. Yesterday he started talking to me, he even made chicken soup and today he is making BBQ, I feel so much better too.
God is GOOD!!!
