Well, I’ve done well with my recovery so far. My surgery was two weeks ago today but I must admit my underarm / arm is more sore now than it was in the beginning. It hurts to drive (bumpy) and today even to walk (pounding, swinging). I still have the drain in but hope to get that out on Wednesday when I go back for another followup. I can do ok driving for short distances. I just drive one handed which isn’t a problem at all. It’s moreso the bumps in the road and the seatbelt that cause the pain though. I talked to my friend Lisa who I met in the chemo room a long time ago (very beginning of my treatment) and she said her arm is still sore and her surgery was about 5 weeks before mine! Ouch. I’m doing my arm exercises though so hopefully it’ll get better. Gosh darn lymph nodes.
We mailed off our application for our adoption home study today. It took us a while to pull together all the documents and fill out all the forms but got everything pulled together yesterday. It should take about 5-6 weeks before we know if we’re approved or not. That’s the first step in any adoption. It involves background checks, fingerprinting, autobiography questions, marriage liceses, forms, references, home visits, interviews, etc.
