First Flinders Appointment After Surgery :)

Shannon took me to the hospital for my first consult this morning after the operation. It has been a week and 2 days since the surgery. I am still very swollen - probably due to not resisting a 50% off clothing sale at Savers Recycle Superstore yesterday!!! I was there for 4 hours. Was worth it.....I spent $68 and got clothing for the whole family (well, mostly Bella and I - Hard to find good quality boys and men's stuff!)!!

So I went in and the nurse changed the Hyperfix dressings. She put alcohol on the old stuff to make it easier to remove and OMG it stung. Then she swabbed the wounds with saline solution to remove old scabbing that has healed underneath and that stung just as bad. Then the plastic surgeon on call came in and inspected the wounds and said they're healing nicely and to come back next week. So the nurse put more Hyperfix on and I was away again! I have dissolvable stitches so I didn't have to go through the pain of getting any stitches removed! BONUS!!

On my way home, I decided to go to Target to get some crop tops and bras. I found some crop tops for $10 each, one being a leopard print one (so cool!!) and I found a 2pack of those Target brand Ahh Bra things for $16. They're surprisingly comfortable!!! Gotta go and get some more of those!!

When I got home, I went to the bathroom to check out the bruising around my breasts. WOW, it looks horrible!!! Looks like my chest has been hit with a cricket bat!! I will put all my pics in one post, I still have to get them downloaded off my phone, still trying to find my cable to connect my phone to the PC!!
