Sorry for not blogging in a bit, I’ve basically been either at school or in hyperbaric oxygen treatments throughout the past week. I’ve been trying to stay as relaxed as possible but it hasn’t been easy. Something that stresses me out a lot is uncertainty, and it’s tough to not know what is under the bandages covering where my tissue damage is. I’m putting out positive energy that it will look better or the same as before, but am preparing myself in case it’s worse. My appointment with my surgeon is this Thursday so I’ll keep everyone posted.
We’re really bummed to have missed the wedding this weekend, but it was good to stay here and have time to sleep this weekend and do more hyperbarics. My skin is re-tightening up again after they took out some of the expander fluid (this is what’s supposed to happen) and it’s been getting a bit more uncomfortable again – so it’s good I didn’t fly.
Luckily, I’ve been very distracted with school. School definitely started off very fast paced this quarter so I haven’t had too much time to think about all the possibilities of the tissue damage. During hyperbaric treatments, I’m in a big glass tube filled with oxygen for 2 hours. That would certainly be a good time to stress out, but luckily they have lots of movies you can watch during the treatment. So far, I’ve watched: Legally Blonde (1 and 2), Maid in Manhattan, How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days, Dreamgirls, My Big Fat Greek Wedding, Bridesmaids, and Knocked Up. It definitely makes the experience more enjoyable and not claustrophobic. I’ll keep everyone updated next week!
