I have to remind myself that I have stitches when I go to do something I am not allowed to do like drive or lift something heavy.
I can’t drive until after I have my follow-up with the doctor Wednesday.
The only issues I’ve had from the surgery are that I am really tired and itchy. I get sleepy suddenly. I normally do not take naps unless I am sick, but since the surgery, I nap at least once a day.
The area around the incision is so itchy. I know it is from healing, but it still makes me crazy because I cannot scratch like I normally would. I have to be gentle because the area is swollen and bruised.
I went by my sister yesterday afternoon to see the kids in their costumes and trick or treat with them a little. I had to be physically distant and only give light hugs with them. I know they didn’t understand that, but I couldn’t chance hurting myself.
They were so cute in their costumes. My niece was Mulan and my nephew was Buzz Lightyear. They had a ball. We went up and down the street with them for about an hour and then came home.
We never get many trick or treaters. Our house is on a dark street near woods, so we get 15 kids at the most. I was surprised they didn’t come later being it was Friday and warm, but they stopped about 8:00.
I hope everyone had a nice Halloween! And don’t forget to set your clocks back (for daylight savings).
