On Tuesday, my friends Megan and Eileen came over and they brought me these gorgeous flowers.
They had some lunch with Ben. He made grilled chicken salad. I had a cherry popsicle. Meh.
Yesterday I had a bit of a scare. It was around 8:00 and I noticed that part of my left leg was swelling. Justin and Anna (bro and sis-in-law) are both nurses, so I called Justin and asked him if he thought I should be worried about a blood clot. It wasn't red or warm to the touch, but it did hurt a bit, although not consistently. He said it most likely wasn't, but I got scared anyway and Ben and I went to the ER, where my dad met up with us. Justin came along later. They did an ultrasound on it and they said it was fine. I guess I'd rather be paranoid than dead, but I sort of feel silly about it. I'm relieved though. I've been walking like I should, so I was really upset when I saw the swelling.
Oh, speaking of ultrasound, Justin and Anna went for their first ultrasound today! I'm so excited about my very first niece or nephew. I just can't wait :)
Today, Ben went back to work. I feel so bad that he spent all of his vacation time with me and we didn't even do anything. He's pretty swell though. After he left, I got a visit from my grandma and my cousin. It was good to see them. Last time I saw them was a few weeks pre-op. They said they definitely noticed a difference in my appearance. So exciting! They brought me this cute basket with a few different nail polishes, body wash, lotion, and some sugar free mint chocolate chip gum. We had a nice visit.
Oh, I have kind of a TMI/gross question for you guys, so if you don't want to read about it, stop reading now and have a great day.
It's normal to have liquid stool when you're on a liquid diet, right? I mean, no solid food in=no solid waste out, correct? Just checking, because my "safe discharge packet" from the hospital says that if you have diarrhea then it's probably from a bacteria acquired in the hospital and they can treat it. But, I don't really feel like it's diarrhea, it just seems to me that it's liquid poo. Thanks in advance for your answers. Take care, all!
