This is the first time I've been able to sit up long enough to type on a real keyboard; all the other post-surgery posts were pecked out on my phone. So it's a milestone of sorts. Of course, the screen is swimming and I'm breathing hard. Red blood cells: you need them!
For those of you into the gruesome, here's a picture of my incision scar (the black spots are where they had attached the "drain." For some reason, surgery bloats the abdomen, so I look about twice as thick as I normally am. Apparently, it was all much more gruesome a week ago, but no one thought to take a picture then.
