Day 20

It occurs to me much too late that I should have been labeling these as post 1 post 20 and not day 1, day 20.  But hey, it’s too late for that, so who cares?  Not me!


I’m Whiny

I am a whiny little baby today. My chest hurts from the skin expanders, and for the love of all that is holy, these drains are KILLING me. I could probably deal with the pain from the skin expanders, but the drains, they are simply intolerable. There are two of them, and they have tubes that are underneath the skin of my underarm and they go down to those two little hand grenade looking things. They are painful and they are gross and they have disgusting stuff coming out of them, and I hate them.

Chinese Food

I had a dream today about Chinese food, so that meant we needed to get Chinese food. The place I like doesn’t deliver, but I was determined to get food from Aloha. Of course I can’t drive, but I do have a son who can. And I went with him. It was so nice to get out of the house. According to the visiting nurse lady I’m not supposed to go anywhere but religious services and medical appointments. So I decided this was a medical appointment and it was necessary for my mental health! Better still, even though my son hates my jeep, we took it. I love my jeep. I haven’t driven it for over a week now.

More About Food

So we got the food, brought it home and all I could manage was have a bowl of won ton soup. I don’t know if that’s a good thing or not? Could it be that my lack of appetite is making my tummy shrink? I don’t know, but it’s a super positive thought. I have about 9 million pounds to lose, so this may help.
