Yes, I’m home.
I was discharged late this afternoon and arrived home about an hour ago, thanks to the chauffeur services of a friend.
I spent a little bit of time getting the stinking black bananas out of the kitchen and organizing after my five day absence.
The drainage bags that I was given are the same kind that I had for the surgery itself–a small, football-shaped plastic container that’s slightly larger in size that a large lemon. They fit nicely into the pockets of my sweat pants, so getting around the house will be much easier than I expected. Sleeping, however, might be another story.
The large bags clipped to the bed linen away from my body. I’ll have to figure out a way to keep these smaller contained away from me so I don’t roll onto them during my sleep.
One thing that I need to do before going to bed is create my fluid output rate spreadsheet. Those numbers will determine when the drainage bags come out.
Hopefully I’ll be up for a more detailed update tomorrow. G’night! 🙂
