The Little Signs of Recovery that excite us ....

I thought it would be fun (and mentally helpful) to post the little things that we've been noticing that mean we are recovering...

Personally.. I am excited that I can pull my pants up and down now without having to worry about catching my incision

... at least i'm visibly healing on the outside

I was excited when I could put my leg up on the edge of the tub when I was showering. That way I could shave my legs.

Oooo, I've got the leg up and the rolling over, still watch my pants though. I only wish I could laugh freely..LOL

I was very happy to put a pair of pants on- on Day 8, I finally had warm legs!

That I still notice men! I thought that part of me would die when they took my "womanhood". But it didn't! That is so huge for me! It fills me with hope.

A day I can go through w/out falling onto the couch and actually get something accomplished. My garden may take a week to plant, but at least I'm doing a little at a time. Can't wait to get energy back.

Re: The Little Signs of Recovery that excite us ....

I've had a bunch of them:

One day, it was being able to shower without DH helping me in & out of the tub.

One day, it was making it past 3:00 at work without needing a nap.

One day, it was wearing a pair of stretch jeans.

One day, it was driving without putting my towel under my tummy.

One day, it was laughing & sneezing without having to grab my tummy.

One day, it was feeling my bowels settle into place after a BM.

One day, it was jogging across a street without the jelly belly.

Today, it was driving on deer lease roads without pain, & picking up something thinking it weighed 25 - 30 pounds, then finding out it was 40 pounds.

In September I could not do back to school shopping for my kids, who grew out of everything. Now I am able to go to the store almost whenever I want or need without worrying about getting dizzy or too tired to walk around.
