The words has been spoken, YOUR DOING TO MUCH!! I don't understand how could this be true? I saw my doctor twice since my last post and as you can see from the one week out pictures the one last drain remains. I saw my doctor yesterday and I continue to have about 50 to 60 cc of dark red drainage coming from the drain. I guess an indication to him that I am doing to much. So the scolding began: Take it easy, you have just had major surgery. At that moment I feel like a little kid being scolded. So of course, like me, I begin to argue my case wanting to prove that I am right little did I know that I was not going to win that battle. But I haven't been doing much. Would you say going to Costco (and just geting what we need, no browsing) and visiting at the Gymn Tuesday and going to Kohl's and Walgreen on Wednesday doing to much? And the answer was Yes! Sigh... So here I sit with one sole drain remaining. I see the doctor again on Friday.
Dad arrived yesterday to get Mom and I am sad to see her go. It has been such a blessing having her here and it was wonderful for my kids to spend some time with her on their "turf". So I question if I am doing too much with her here how I am going to do less with her gone? I have a feeling it is going to be a rough going until I get the go code that I can do more.

I know it must be hard to sit still when you are used to being so active. Think of this way...each moment you let your body heal, the sooner you'll be back to your routine. Get some movies or good book. I have to admit that I'd have a hard time staying away from Costco...LOL!

Listen to me, Kathi. Are you listening??? ;) Ok, here goes: Sit down!! Relax!! Let others help you do things. I agree with Linda: everyday of rest = another day of healing. You'll be glad you rested. Thinking of you!! :)
