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.
Yesterday I didn’t poop. They even had some guy massage my butt. Today they placed me on diuretics. I pooped.
My Dad also visited me today, so my Mom went home. We walked around the ICU. For physical therapy I’m supposed to walk a loop around the ICU 3 times a day.
My heart pounding goes crazy whenever I walk. The reason I’m doing physical therapy is to raise the bar for my endurance. Everyday I’m pushing my endurance levels so I can recover faster.
