I was in trauma ICU for 6 days before they transferred me to General Surgery on June 12.
After 7 days here on the general surgery. floor, I think, hope, and honestly, I am kind of scared that they might transfer meback to the mother/baby unit. Aside from going home, there is no place id rather be.
This afternoon, Baby Benjamin will be discharged into Todd's care. For the first time, he will come and sleep with us in our room.
Physical and occupational therapists have ordered me a hospital bed and walker. They help me practice getting in and out of bed and cheer me on as I take my first steps.
Literally, taking one step is pretty difficult.
They are all amazed at my recovery. I am
amazed at how difficult the process is. Not that I'm complaining-- It is a good process.
Todd showed me a picture of what i looked like when he saw me in the ICU immediately following surgery.
It was hard to see- I cried for him, that he had to see it.
