Yesterday turned out to be great day. During my final walk of the day, a small miracle occurred and when we got back to the room, everything had been moved! I got a new room! And it’s beautiful! I big window looking at points east. I’m on the tenth floor, so it makes for quite a view.
This new room doesn’t have quite the same triage vibe as the step down unit. Much more civilized. No alarms going.. no TVs blaring. I couldn’t be happier.
I slept very well last night. I had normal dreams. Not the sort of topical and obsessive ones that have been the norm for these last weeks. I slept soundly enough that I woke up a few times a little unclear on where I was exactly! Perfect!
As you can see, the main dressing is off. Not sure if you can really tell at this resolution that those are all staples. Roughly 60 of them! They’ll come out before I leave. I have to admit that seems a little miraculous. I mean, it’s a BIG incision! In just a week, it’ll have healed enough that I won’t risk opening it back up when I’m playing handball?? *winks*
