Two weeks post surgery. Yes, I covered cause I still had on that ugly bandage!

Yesterday marked the first month past surgery. I am doing so much better than I expected! Wound has healed and scarring is minimal, thanks to my surgeon using plates instead of wire to "put me back together!" Getting used to my steady heartbeat instead of all the hops, skips and jumps I've had most of my life.
Thanks for all the info on this site. I wasn't nearly as scared because I knew what to expect.
Looking forward to catching up on a lot of life I've been missing!
I hate the wait. Gives me more time to get nervous and worried. I was ready for 9/10 surgery, but had to postpone. I just dread the pain of recovery, even more than the surgery. I have Fibro, and I have had so much pain in my lifetime, I don't want more, even if it's only a few weeks. I'm tired of constant pain. But then, maybe this pain will take my mind off all the other pain...
Try to keep remembering it's in God's hands and His Will will be done. If He didn't think I could handle it, then I wouldn't be having it. So I must be stronger than I think!
