The pro's of being in recovery over the holidays are:
1)It's cold out so I'm not sweating up a storm under this cast and I don't mind being stuck under my down comforter.
2) There is no "get stressed out over the Christmas madness" option.
3) Being home to enjoy every moment of the anticipation a 4 year old has for Christmas. I'm cherishing it.
The con's of being in recovery overy the holidays are:
1) I CAN'T TAKE PHOTOS!!!
It's slightly torturous.
This one is from last year.
I had my first check in since surgery and I got to see my incisions...ew.
I have a shiny new (blue) cast and a better understanding of what my surgery consisted of. The surgeon said "that was hard, take care of your recovery because I don't want to do it again!"
Neither do I Dr. Lee, neither do I.
