Hooray! My wound vac came off yesterday. I can now stand normally while walking and don’t have the purse and tube to tote around all the time. It’s freeing.
I go back in a week to be sure I don’t need that all put back on. In the meantime I have a fancy top wound dressing we can put on me ourselves.
I have to start slowly. I’ve been on bedrest since July 8, nearly 2 months ago. I want to move about quickly but know I can’t risk this reversing. So laps around my back yard for today, starting to lift Asher out of his crib, and light housework.
Finally I feel my own recovery is progressing. I hope to be able to start working again soon and even driving. Showers must wait until the wound is entirely shut.
