After a week of bed rest (for all intents and purposes), some pain medication, and many fun band-aids, I have officially cleared by the doctor to go back to life as usual. Granted, I went back to work on Monday and have been cooking the whole time...but it still feels good to have your surgeon say "Looks great! You can do whatever you want." Hooray! I still have a little bit of healing left to do with my incisions, but they are pretty much healed.
Thanks so much for all of your prayers! God certainly has carried me through a scary and potentially stressful time.
