Oh how I hated wearing that stupid abdominal binder--but I have been officially freed as of this morning. Amens!! Praise Jebus!
I have been in for a check up already and my Dr. is THRILLED with how I am turning out. He swore he never would have thought that my "baby shelf" would have disappear like it did. He even checked his notes and wrote in 3 places that the shelf would remain--smaller, but not totally reduced.
So yeah for good genes and elastic skin! (He said that is what it all really comes down to)
I am really starting to see my "curves" take shape--the swelling is drastically reduced. I still have "lumps and bumps" but those are the fat deposits and "ick" that are still dissolving. They are getting smaller and smaller--I can tell the difference when I massage the areas--and the ITCHING--OMG--THE ITCHING!! It's that internal itch that you just cannot get to--it's enough to drive me insame sometimes, but that is everything healing and it totally normal according to my surgeon.
In other news, we survived Snowmaggedon 2011--we got a lot of sleet and that helped keep our snow fall totals down around here--if you consider 8" keeping it down--but we were supposed to get double that--so I'll shut up. It's now just colder than cold...so the snow is here to stay for a while.
Whilst holed up in my house for the past few days, I knitted my first hat--I used a loom and it was so fun and quick. the hat was immediately commandeered by my daughter--so I guess I'll have to make another one. I got the idea in my had that I wanted to learn how to knit--and I have taught myself the basics (Allah love the internets--you can find anything, I tell ya) and am working on 2 projects-a scarf and a baby blanket. I just didn't see an end in sight to either project and was getting discouraged, so that is when decided to try the hat thing--and wht do you know--I feel so good about completing that one thing, that I knitted almost another 6" on the blanke last night. Maybe I will get it finished by the time the baby that it's for heads off to Kindergarten!! HAHAHA!
Anyhoo---stay warm and out of trouble--if anyone out there is a "knitter", please tell me how to join "blocks" of knitting together. That I cannot figure out......grrrr.........
