It’s funny. After six weeks of wandering around in a bathrobe or sweats and t-shirts, putting on jeans and a regular shirt for the first time is odd. And constrictive. I wonder if I can modify the dress code at work for my return… Hmmm…..
This morning I went to work to drop off my return to work form with my boss and I spent just over an hour wandering around saying hi to people. It was good to see them all again. I’m ready for the interaction with real people on a regular basis once again. Sitting in the house alone for this long does get on one’s nerves just a bit.
After wandering through the offices, I went to lunch with a friend to get caught up with her.
Last night was another sleepless night. I think I was so excited about the freedom from tubes that I just couldn’t shut off my brain. I started to think about all the things that I can do again, both outside of work and at work, and that just kept me going until about 3 AM. Ugh. I hope that excitement is behind me and I can get into a regular sleep pattern once again.
As far as the drainage tube site is concerned, it’s closing up and beginning to heal. I’ll have to admit that this one seems to be a bit more tender than the first one that was removed for some reason. I’ll keep an eye on it.
I’ve also been keeping an eye on my temperature: 98.6. Let’s hope it stays that way through the weekend and beyond.
I’ll wrap up the day with dinner at the local Mexican restaurant with friends in a short while.
