The pain is a lot better than yesterday! My incision wound doesn’t burn anymore, which is worth celebrating. I still can’t stand up for long, but I can use my crutches to get to the bathroom now, haha. I find that my skin is super dry though. I’m hoping the pain will subside by tomorrow, but ehh. We’ll see.
Looks like I made it through the first day! I don’t know how people move anywhere with surgery, because my incision wound BURNS. Going to the bathroom is no joke, haha. Heading into the OR was surprisingly fun; they warm you up and all. Last thing I remember was them strapping my arms down. I fell asleep with amnesia within five seconds. But then you wake up from amnesia feeling throbbing pain once the surgery is done, which kind of sucks.
I’ve been laying down on the sofa the entire day, because any move I make ends up hurting my incision area. I can’t really stand up, because the gravity rushes my blood towards the ankle, which pretty much kills me. I’m hoping the pain will be better by tomorrow so that I can head to church, but we’ll see how things play out.
I have an appointment ten days post-op, and the doctor said that he’ll remove the stitches and MOST LIKELY put me in a walking cast then. Yay! But in the meantime, THIS BURNS.
I’m hungry and thirsty, but I can’t eat or drink anything because of the surgery. I’m hungry and thirsty though…

I heard a joke once: Man goes to the doctor. Says he’s depressed, life is harsh and cruel. Says he feels all alone in a threatening world. Doctor says, “treatment is simple. The great clown Pagliacci is in town. Go see him. That should pick you up.” Man bursts into tears. “But Doctor” he says, “I am Pagliacci.”Robin Williams (via paintedlions)
