almost clear

Surgeon’s office called today to say that the swab/culture taken on Monday is showing no signs of infection, so all that’s left is to let the ostomy close and I’ll be all done with her and the home-care nurse.

I have an ugly scar – and I’m not talking about the incision itself, I’m talking a raised, hard ridge – and I still have lots to go with the physio. I can now lift the arm to shoulder height, a lot of the pain has subsided, so it’s just stretching and work, work, work.

Speaking of work, going back part-time was the smartest thing I’ve done. I’m going to remain part-time until mid-August.
