Recovering

Update:
I am getting better, slowly. The redness is gone and the swelling is a lot better. It is still tender and hurts in some areas, but I think I am on the mend. I have not gone back to the doctor.

Aackkk! I am laying in bed with a heating pad on my belly right now. I noticed last night that my incision sight (belly button) where my gallbladder was removed is tender and red. It hurts to bend at the waist. It feels a bit swollen there as well. I called the doc today and he said it is rare for an infection a month after surgery, but not impossible. So I was instructed to use heat, and if it doesn't get better after a day I will have to come in to the clinic. I feel like I have so much to do still before Elijah gets here. I want to be healthy and well. Please say a little prayer for me, and my worrywart ways. I have bad visions of MRSA and staph in my head.

Hi sweetie!
Am finally getting to visit your blog!
Keep up the heating pad, k. I KNOW you are probably feeling like you need to a ton before your babe comes home (YEAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!), but you can do all that later. I promise :)
Easier said, I know......
Sending you lots and lots of hugs!!!!!
