Today's doctor's appointment resulted in the need to have these chest wounds drained/aspirated and compressed. This will happen tomorrow morning at the Pasqua Hospital. Hopefully this is just a minor procedure to help speed up the healing process....apparently this is a common procedure following a mastectomy to help the body find and adjust to a new way of draining fluids in the lymphatic system. Of course I am not thrilled with the idea of another needle poke... however, whatever it takes to heal.
Sleep has been good; the arm is slowing coming along although I still can't sit next to Bob while watching hockey as he continues to poke, bump and assist on almost every play; ...knitting is coming along too....still making dish clothes but I may have to make the quantum leap and start a siwash sweater for the girls.
For those of you on Easter vacation - I hope it relaxes and refreshes you!
Happy Monday! Shelley
