I pooped today. Which is great! I also sat in my room’s chair.
I’m not allowed to shower, so my hygiene isn’t that great. The nurse washed my hair with dry shampoo and water. Then the nurse wiped me down with sanitary wipes.
My chest tubes were removed today. The nurses first removed the tape, which they said was “the most annoying part since there’s a lot of them.” Removing the tape doesn’t hurt, but it does create anticipation. After the tape was removed, they yanked the tubes out. It shouldn’t be done slowly, because that creates way more pain.
They covered the holes with some gauze pads and tape.
