(Day 4) Improvement // 16th November 2020

Looking at me today no one would ever say I was a proper mess 2 days ago, honestly.

The nights are still difficult but I’m feeling a lot more like myself now. I was able to do some proper work today and half a workshop I had booked. However, at 6pm my body was simply giving up and I decided it was time to call it a day and have some rest.

(Below a picture of me in the morning working…. versus at 6pm when I was absolutely exhausted)

The pain is at an acceptable level and I’m only taking paracetamol every 6 hours, which is definitely an improvement.

Today was also shower day! (whoop whoop! We like shower days hehee)

And for all of those who are wondering what kind of set-up I’ve got in place… please see below (“I’m not embarrassed, you’re embarrassed”)

Tomorrow I’m going to the hospital to change the dressings. I haven’t used my crutches since Thursday and I’m just too scared of the pain it might cause. Might have to take some cocodamol just in case.

All of this to say…. day 4 after surgery is better. =D
