I was home trying to adjust to being immobile. I was using crutches to get around and Mom & Dan were there to help me. There were a lot of adjustments to be made as I couldn’t sleep in my own bed. It was too firm. I missed the hospital bed. I was able to sleep on the sleeper sofa because there was SOME GIVE on the air mattress. Getting around was an adjustment.
I went back to Hopkins to have the drain removed but had to wait 3 weeks to get the stitches out. Since my leg was radiated, they wanted to be sure it had enough time to heal. The bad part was some of the stitches got buried because my skin starting to grow over them. It was rough having them removed.
