Its still hard to believe the month of July happened like it did. It feels like we'll never be over the trauma of it all, but I know in reality it won't be long at all.
I've been home nearly a week and its been incredible. (Thanks to my sister, I came home to a clean house, caught-up laundry and a stocked refrigerator.) We've done a lot of hanging at home, reading together, playing games, walking and just being. It still doesn't feel normal yet, but it feels good to be re-connecting.
Mostly, I'm feeling better and better. I nap everyday, but can also do light housework and give directions, love and supervision to children.
The visiting nurse is here everyday to change the wound dressing. For several reasons, we opted to take the wound vac off late last week. I don't know if it will stay off but the break from it has been welcomed. The pain, hassle, noise and inconvenience of it are not missed.
We go back to NYC tomorrow to see the surgeon and the infectious disease doctor. I'm just paranoid enough that I'm going to throw a couple "overnight" items into a bag for our "day trip" into the city.
I'm low on words today (so. sick. of. cancer.) so I wanted to include some random pictures from the month of July that I haven't posted yet.
Thank you for checking in, for caring, for praying, for believing. I'm ever grateful for Team Lisa.
