I'm glad things are going so well!

Discoloration and swelling is to be expected - it will go away and then you'll look gorgeous!

 

I understand how you feel, though. I had to have a piece of flesh removed from my pinkie on my left hand, where a tiny piece of glass had been left behind after a cat induced / beer glass accident. The piece of glass started to migrate, and with my blood which doesn't clot properly, the doctor decided to excise it right there and then before it got into a vein. There was a hole in my pinkie! I fainted the first time I saw it. Literally. Feinted. On the bathroom floor. Thereafter I cleaned it whilst looking the other way. I was so upset! But now you can hardly see a scar there.

That sounds awful, Mother!  I’m

sure I would have fainted too if I saw a hole in my pinky.  Blugh.  When I looked at my wounds I was laying in bed just in case I did get woozy.  It wasn’t as bad as I’d feared though.  And I didn’t look long.  Lol!

Don't tell the Gaidin lest they decide it's a good idea, but battle scars are sexy. *waggles eyebrows*

 

In all seriousness, it takes a lot to look at a wound and find anything pretty in it. This is a big body change, and even though you wanted it, its going to be a while before you 'like' it. *hugs* Either way, it sounds like you are doing great! More to the points, you are doing things more at your own pace without shying away from it too much for it to interfere with the more emotional part of your healing. You are still beautiful, and it's just going to take a little while before you feel it too.

Thanks for thinking of me, @LilyElizabeth!  There's just so much going on right now I'm a tad overwhelmed.

 

As far as my recovery goes, I've hit a road stop.  I had some separation in the stitches (much worse on the right breast than the left) and it set my recovery back another three weeks.  I'm seeing my doctor weekly, which is lovely because I'm the type to freak out.  She's been amazingly compassionate, understanding, and calming.  So I'm not overly worried, I'm just frustrated that it's taking so long to heal. 

 

I've been unable to look at my wounds because it grosses me out so much, so my husband has taken over changing my bandages every day.  After I shower, he has to clean them with hydrogen peroxide, add a medicated ointment of some sort, then add on a special medicated gauze (called xeroform), then put on the regular, absorbent gauze.  It's a lot, but he does it lovingly and without complaint.  I'm so lucky I've got such a wonderful spouse!

 

A lot of my swelling has gone down, but my doctor let me know it'll take roughly six months for them to stabilize at the size they'll be from now on.  So far, I think they're still too large, but we'll see how much more they can shrink.  If not, I've already talked to her about possible liposuction to get the results I want.

 

So, it's been rather stressful with all this going on and also the forced isolation and trying to instruct 10-year-olds with online learning.

 

Are all you hanging in any better than me?

I have such a great respect for teachers now. I already did, but the flexibility you have had to have to suddenly switch gears - wow! 

 

I am working from home 4 days a week and going into the office on Mondays only. They want a small presence in the office every day and my day is Monday. We still won't be seeing clients. Everything is conducted telephonically now. I'm just grateful that my industry (behavioral health) is considered essential and I have a job. 

 

I've been moving so yesterday was my first day to actually stay home. (I wasn't feeling well Friday so I opted to stay home yesterday to be safe. I'm fine now.)

My sister is a teacher too and she teaches online now too. She says it’s even harder to make kids to concentrate online. 🙂

*hugs*

I'm really sorry about your set-back, Mashi 😞

It looks like your lovely husband has things well in hand, though!
