Tube be gone

Posted on Tuesday, October 10th, 2017 at 5:29 am

Got the drainage tube removed yesterday.  I am continuing to make progress in my recovery.  At times, I am doing well, at times I need to be horizontal, but the ratio is moving toward the former.  My biggest issue right now is staying asleep for more than 2 hours at a time.  I find it difficult to get back to sleep, primarily because of heat retention.  I need to get up and release heat, which wakes me up.  This is largely due to body temp, which has yet to return to normal cycles because of the healing process.

Still not entirely comfortable, but I am doing better.  Stamina erect is still missing, but I’m sure that kicking up the diet will help.  I am heading to the store in half an hour to grab some things, some of which are replacing things that I got before surgery and have spoiled.  I figure getting there at opening should be the best time to avoid the rush and get a good parking spot.

Looking forward to washing my hair today.

Flushed the (hopefully) last of the hospital medical byproducts from my system, and it makes a big difference.  Had a decent sleep through the morning as the temperature dropped into the upper 60’s.

A/C s off, office is open, Myka in the LZB.  A little breakfast at noon.  I hope to accelerate the diet a bit.  I feel more like cooking.  Thinking chicken and shrimp jambalaya for dinner.  Chicken pot pie for late lunch.
