Day four

The recovery is truly amazing. I am totally off pain medication (other than pain pump on my neck) and relatively pain free as long as I do not do anything stupid, like sliding my netbook off my knees into my stomach... My biggest complaint is sleeping in the chair (last night was pretty much sleepless), still having that pain pump, drain tubes, and no shower. I feel like I will be able to get to somehow normal life soon, ahead of the schedule and doctor's prediction. I can get up from chair pretty well, as long as I bend my knees I can stand pretty straight. Tomorrow morning I'll see the doctor, and hopefully he will get rid of some of the drain tubes, pump, and containers. Actually I am looking forward to see myself in the mirror for the first time without all these pads, tubes, etc. Speaking is still more difficult...
