Em hotep, all!

Thank you again. <3 I believe my drains can come out tomorrow (finally! woof) and apart from GI issues due to the antibiotics and stress, I'm doing quite peachily. (For better or worse, I was too stubborn to take the narcotics starting the day after surgery. Set-kid, anyone?) ;)

My dad went home yesterday. It's rather nice to be alone. The trip, if nothing else, highlighted how distant we've grown and the gap in our relationship. It was pleasant to have him here, even if our interactions weren't always good--we rather walked on eggshells around each other--but it's also given me food for thought in how our relationship might be down the road, and a realistic picture of what it is now.

Anyway, thank you all. Even though everything looks pretty scary and bruised and swollen now, it's all healing well and every day is better than the last. Dua Sekhmet! ^_^

Senebty,
Gezausenu.

Em hotep, all!

*deep breath*

So. My first post-op follow-up appointment today . . . did not go well.

Basically things aren't healing the way the surgeon expected. There's more swelling than he'd have thought--he said "Well it doesn't feel like a hematoma?"--and one, uhm, nipple is apparently "struggling for blood supply."

This is made all the more rattling by the fact that my dad's gone (for however distant we are, he was here), and the caregiver service I engaged is . . . not good. Not good at all. I have no trust in them, whatsoever, which essentially means I'm dealing with all of this alone. Not a big deal when everything's going well, but when it's not?

I have one more appointment Thursday, before I head home Friday (I hope?). I'm honestly frightened about what they'll say then. The surgeon had no bedside manner, nor did the nurse who assisted. I wasn't given time to ask questions, or even express my fear. Or the fact that, sure, taking off the ace wrap to apply ointment twice a day is fine, but . . . well, I don't know if I'll be able to rewrap myself?

I've since called the office to put in a message with the nurse who's helped me pre-op, and she's a sweetpea, so hopefully she'll be able to help undo some of this rattling that's been done.

I honestly thought all this was going great. Welp. Guess not.

*flumps*

Prayers to Mama Sekhmet that this isn't as bad as it seems would be very much appreciated, and that my body heals the way its supposed to. <3

Thank you all.

Senebty,
Gezausenu.

So sorry there's been some set backs, Gezausenu.  Prayers things get easier and healing goes more smoothly.

I'm so sorry that things have gone sideways like this, Gezausenu.  I'll be praying for the recovery process to improve, and for the people around you to come through for you and do better...

Much love for you, twin. So sorry to hear of all this. I hope that your body heals swiftly and wholly, and that you are able to find more support in this process. Prayers to our Parents both. <3

Em hotep nefer, all!

First, dua Set, and dua Sekhmet! (Both have had Their hands in this I think, haha.)

Second, the appointment today went so much better than I could have hoped for. Thank you so, so much for your continued prayers and support and love. <3

Essentially, the swelling is sloooowly subsiding, and as it turns out--not to get all TMI on y'all--but my li'l nip is a fighter! Apparently beneath all the scabbing mess there's healthy pink skin. It's not for sure going to make it but I sure feel a lot better than Monday (when I basically felt like a nipple killer--such weight to bear, that was).

The drains came out as well, and holy Gods, I feel so much better. Contrary to my previous experience with drains (which hurt horribly), these didn't hurt at all to remove! I get to wear a handy compression vest for a month or so, but still, it's fantastic to look in the mirror and know that that isn't a binder squishing things--what's there is just my chest, albeit swollen as it heals. <3

I'm praying that I'll be pure enough for Wep Ronpet, but even if not, there's much to celebrate and be grateful for.

I'll leave you now with what I said when waking up from the anesthesia, slurred-sleepy speech and all, just to end things on a light note. :)

Senebty,
Gezausenu.
