This morning, two days shy of the 6 weeks from the surgery, the drain came out. I feel very much better, almost 60% normal. That is still not a lot, but comparing to the last few weeks it feels like heaven.
Today my cats will be sleeping in bed, on top of me, wherever they want. They were remarkable throughout this ordeal, like they sensed that there was something wrong and they just could not bother me. They have my great gratitude.
I am back at the University trying to catch up with my preparation for 450 students awaiting me next week. My TAs were keeping the preparations afloat, and like my cats, they have my utmost gratitude.
I am finally feeling glad to go through it. I hope this blog will come to the nice and happy conclusion soon.
