I drove today. I haven't driven a car since about a week before my surgery. It felt kinda weird and liberating at the same time. I am sore now. I still have to take it kinda easy. I still can't reach but so far with my right side. Plus I have pain all along my right side of my back. I got my first fill Thursday. My chest feels tight. I still have to compress that side for 1 more week. The Dr. told me it hasn't been 6 weeks yet. I was like "What?" It feels like it. Sleep is uncomfortable again... I guess it's back to my comfy recliner.
I want to throw a big party next year for my birthday next year. 43 will be awesome because I know in 1 year I will be back to normal in every way. All my surgeries for reconstruction will be done.I will be feeling strong again.This birthday I will be happy I made it. Next year I will be happy I survived.
Well back to the driving part.... The Dr. told me it hurts because I haven't used that muscle much. So I can drive short distances. So I guess I won't be back to work yet since my job requires me to drive around the city. Plus driving today I think made my chest hurt. I kept wanting to drive with my right hand. I was in pain every time I did! I had to act like I had a stick shift to keep from putting my right hand on the wheel. But I still did it. I was able to drive my car from the old apartment to our new home. I unpacked part of my kitchen then I needed a nap. Matt and Jay took care of the living room and the dining room. I slowly did the bathroom and I will work on our bedroom and finish the kitchen this week. I won't be driving unless I have to. But it still felt good to drive again.
