Hi everyone! It's me Lucy. I thought I ought to let everyone know how I'm doing and include some darling pics of myself just so you'd believe me.
This was me just before surgery. I was pretty pooped from waking up so early. And no...that is not my mother breastfeeding me. She's lame and never did that with us kids.
Lots of drugs keep a girl happy.
This is me day two. I feel like a sausage. You can't really tell but I'm HUGE! My skin is pretty tight.
I'm doing good. There's a lot to balance right now and it's a little stressful but nothing we can't handle. I'm still totally sedated and probably will be for another day. I'll probably come off the ventilator on Thursday. I still haven't peed. I'm working on that. I'm also having a few other little problems: low oxygen sats, low blood pressure and irregular heart rhythms but that is to be expected. After all I just had my sternum broken and heart sliced open. I'm so tough! Mom has a feeling tomorrow might get a little rough but I'm ready.
