Last week was Brutal around here with the heat n humidity. I'm SO VERY THANKFUL for a/c!! The pool isn't even cool as the water temp as reached 94 degrees. The kids say it's refreshing, but I beg to differ. Indoors for me :)
What else is there to due in this heat but ..... recover from surgery, right? Well that's what Danny has been doing. It's been a ROCKY week post op, but I think he's finally on the road to improving.
Every 6 months the surgeon goes into the same spot and lengthens the rods in his back (grows Danny taller, ahhhhh stop).
This is day 2 post op ~ looking good (the redness around the incisions is glue, don't be alarmed....they really need to find a better color, geez)
Danny started to 3rd space (retain all fluids) and he gained 3 lbs in a matter of 1.5 days and become VERY puffy. Even his poor eye lids were swollen :( Thankfully today he started dumping his fluids, on his own. I'm sure the pressure and discomfort from all the extra fluid has been one of the sources to some of his troubles this week.
The 4th of July was definitely a different one for us. We normally are Up North for the 4th, but with Danny's recovery and the heat.....it played out much different.
We still managed to be in the spirit of the Holiday :)
I hope you all had a SAFE and Happy 4th of July!
