The good news is that I'm very goal oriented. After I got released from ICU yesterday they left my healing up to me. I'm weaning myself off the pain meds, learning to walk again,etc. once I meet these goals I get released! That is empowering. Last time I had this surgery and that procedure but now I'm in the drivers seat! I'm hoping to get home real soon. Also Chris has really been with me through the worst like he has never been.
The hard part is the learning what I have to do again. I've been through hell and I look like it :p Getting home is the first step but it will probably be three months of rehab after. The idea is home health for a few weeks and than out patient rehab. My whole right side was crushed. I have broken broken bones in my shoulder and hand. Not being self-sufficient has been tough for me. I can't dwell on that! I just need to get better so I can be independent again. I've got 3 great kids to get better for and I'm lucky it wasn't worse. Still this all just sucks. I want to get back to living and not just healing.
Thanks again for all the support.
