I know I must be feeling better because I had my first dream about actually having this baby last night. In my dream, I was at a mirror combing my hair or something, getting ready to have the baby (because that’s EXACTLY what I will be caring about then!). I even felt recovered enough from surgery in my dream to have the baby. But it was funny because then, some more conscious part of my brain said: “No, not yet. We still have 4 weeks to go!” And so then I just stopped getting ready and I think my dream changed to something else.
It is nice to know that my subconscious has moved onto bigger and better things to think about!
In other news, I’m getting my staples taken out tomorrow at 9:30. I really hope for a few things: 1) it’s as painless as the stitch/bolster removal for last surgery was; 2) I feel less restriction of movement once they are out (in the last 2 days, I’ve been getting some pretty severe back/neck pain, I think partly from holding my head so still); and 3) my incision heals as well as those from my previous surgery.
Speaking of multiple surgeries, it’s been funny because several doctors and nurses have gotten confused over which surgery happened when and which wounds/scars are from which time. It all happened so fast and so close together that everyone is getting confused!
Finally, in good non-news news, I had a regular OB appointment and we are back to treating me like “normal”!!! Yay! My OB was so great, too. He was commenting on how these appointments are so great and it’s so nice to be able to talk about good things that we should just have one every day, just so we can say “Everything looks good! Keep up the good work!” He also offered to go to bat for me with getting various appointments, but I think I’m going to reserve that for when we try to schedule the oncologist (which I just feel will take a little while, for some reason). Hooray for baby non-news news!
