I get to see my daughter today!! I get to see my daughter today!! I get to see my daughter today!! I am ecstatic! I miss her so much, but I have come to realize it was so good to leave her with my mom for a couple of weeks. It became especially clear to me during my recovery from surgery.
I was so naive about that. I thought I was going to be good to go by Friday night. I had made all sorts of plans for the weekend. I was even going to take the local helicopter ride with my husband on Saturday. Yeah right. What was I thinking?
Sunday morning, I woke up and couldn't swallow or talk very well because something was touching my throat. I called the doctor to see if that was normal, and he said it wasn't and wanted me to come into ER. He was concerned it could be a blood clot. As it turned out, there was a blood clot, but it wasn't big enough for him to need to open me back up and drain the area. Hmmm...I am very thankful for that decision. Ouch. So, he gave me antibiotics and told me if it got worse to come back in. Well, it has actually gotten better since then, so that's a relief.
I got to take a shower today for the first time since Friday. Is that too much info? It's very exciting news to me. I just had to share it.
All in all, today is a great day. Now, I must go get the house cleaned and do some of my homework before my family arrives, so I can spend lots and lots of time with them.
