I am improving. Off of pain medication except for an occasional dose in the late afternoon. I was able to drive myself to my first post-op appointment today and the surgeon’s assistant was pleased with how things looked! Still not able to do a whole lot, but am able to do more than I could 2 days ago. I am, however, still extremely tired, and don’t have much energy for thinking through the posts floating around in my head. Hopefully I can think more coherently in a few days. I’ll check in with you all soon.
