Today isn't much different from yesterday, minus the AWESOME THUNDER STORMS. Say what you will about New England weather, but it really never gets old.
I woke up around 6am with lots of stiffness and pain. And by lots, I really don't mean lots, I just mean that it's not as great as my first couple of days. I left Loki uncovered, so he woke up when I did. I got up to pee and start my ice pack usage for the day, and Loki moved to follow me. He was a complete brat about it, shrieking and flying and being annoying. While I was getting my ice packs ready, he decided to fly back to my room, but I had closed the door to keep the cool air inside. So he sat on the floor in the hallway, crying, waiting for me to get him.
I share that little hallway with one roommate, and let's remember that it's 6:15 in the morning on a weekday. Loki wouldn't shut up, so I leaned down a bit to get him to jump on my finger, and my right calf didn't appreciate it. It felt as if my stitches were being pulled out of the exterior-side incision. Fuck. After discussing things with a medically-inclined friend, I figure that my incision oozed a bit and got stuck to the gauze, which isn't an emergency. It just hurts like a motherfucker. My left leg is much the same, still worse than the right leg. My left ankle is in rough shape, too, very swollen. No fever yet today.
I covered Loki up, but couldn't fall back asleep for the rest of the morning. I finally uncovered Loki and changed my ice packs around 10, which is around when I did finally fall asleep, until about 2. since then, I've been mostly awake, taking very quick naps here and there. I had dinner about an hour ago, but I'll probably nap again as soon as I bring my dish back to the kitchen and switch ice packs again.
Two more days till the dressings come off! It's going to be gross.
