So now Iam out and feeling not to bad the drugs help a lot can't wait to have a look at my tummy tomorrow
Feeling a little groggy now
Funny thing happened well it want not to funny at the time my daughter who is 22 lent across the bed to kiss me and pressed the bed remote to put the bed down it killed like hell but all is ok the poor bugger cried as I screamed
So note to self never put the bed remote were itt can be bumped

Day 6

Went to my wonderful ps today for my checkup before I travel home tomorrow 6 hours away but I am flying which is better then sitting in the car.
Well he took off my tapes and I got to check the scar out well I was very happy and my belly button looks great.
I didn't get a pic as he taped it up again.
this gets the best result for a flat scar so each week for three months I will change the tape .
so when I do it myself I will take a pic of my scrar
Standing a bit taller to day alls good

Glass of wine

Just what the dr ordered NOT but I did ;)
No really I am not on any pain killers now for two days
Had a glass of wine with dinner and I think I will sleep like a baby .

Crying mess today

Woke up teary eyed felt un loved no one cares blaablaablaa !!!!!! You know how it's goes just had my meltdown I think it had to come I was feeling to good .
Oh we'll I through the airport waiting for my plane home

That's crazy because I was so emotional today! I cried most of the day for any little reason. Guess it's just part of the emotions of this recovery. I am also six days post OP. Go figure! Lol
