|A note from the boys next door.
I got discharged on a Saturday, and it wasn't long until friends and family started making things easier for both Rob and I with food drop offs. The weekend went ok, Rob had to help me a lot with simple daily things but we found our temporary routine pretty quickly.
When Rob went back to work on Monday I had "Angie Sitters" for the first week while Rob was at work, as I really couldn't be alone. Recovery was very slow but steady. I made sure to get up every hour for a little walk and when I felt a little stronger I started walking in the yard. I saw my family doctor after ten days to get my stitches out.

|Did this every hour I was awake for weeks, so happy when I could finally get all 3 balls in the air!
|Homemade chicken pot pie from a neighbor.
|Nurse Molly on duty.
|She was so happy when she could finally get in my lap.
|Our backyard helped with recovery.
|Rob taking a well deserved break from taking care of me.
|Cookies I ordered as thank you gifts.
It's been over three months since my surgery, and I've been back to work since July 17th, but recovery continues in the chest area. Those drainage holes seem to take forever to heal.
