This is a text conversation between me and my cousin Jay. He is an idiot, but I love him.
Maybe I am a freak of human nature, but I am feeling surprisingly great. The first twelve hours after surgery was really really rough I must say, then all of a sudden I felt like I turned a corner. There are three tiny incision marks and a little mark where they went in through my belly button, but the only thing that really hurts is my throat from the intubation. I have Dave taking care of me like a champ and when he’s not here, my mom is since I can’t lift Tate by myself. I’m hoping that by the weekend I’ll start picking her up a little and see how it goes.
Thanks so much for all your good thoughts and kind wishes.
Dave and I have also made the joint decision that I should be wearing this bracelet at all times.
