Today was the day... I went to Dr. M's office to get some paperwork & also to see if I could get my drains removed. They did it!!!! They're gone! It feels so much better. The right one hurt *really* bad though. It was wrapped in the muscle or something and my whole right side hurts. I've taken some pain meds & I'm hoping it'll go away soon. I also told Dr. M about my negative pathology reports & he was very happy - he high 5'ed me! The nurses said the foobs look pretty good. Tomorrow I go to Louisville to meet w/ the plastic surgeon.
As we were leaving Dr. M's office some of the padding I'd had around my peeling nipples came fell on the ground. I had to replace the padding when they did my drains. The padding I'd been using were old nursing pads one w/ the inside cut out & the other over the top of it to protect the tip. Anyway, I had my hands full, so I asked Simon to pick them up. Then mom looked at me & laughed. She said its not everyday that you get to give your child a counting lesson with nipple pads! Simon didn't seem to mind.
