Everything went as planned, and we got home on Tuesday. I was up and walking Monday night and Tuesday morning - the usual up and down the hospital hallway walk. Tuesday morning, we saw the assistant from the gynecologists office. She checked on the wounds and set up a follow up appointment on the 10th. Other than that, things were pretty uneventful, and we were just waiting for the paperwork to catch up so we could go home. It was just after lunch when we left the hospital.
It's great to be home again. I'm moving rather slowly, but I'm able to get around. I have to take it easy - no lifting, limited bending and stretching, no reaching up high, and no driving for at least two weeks.
Today (Thursday) was our follow-up appointment with the plastic surgeon. They removed most of the bandages, though I still have to wear the pink compression thingie that looks like an 80's tube-top. The drains are still draining quite a bit, so they couldn't take them out yet - but we didn't really expect them to come out that fast, either. We have another appointment with them on Monday, maybe the drains will come out by then.
So, all in all things are going as planned. Slow and steady progress - and slow and steady wins the race, right?
