Suture Removal Today

Should I be scared about this? I'm not sure... I think, though, that once the sutures are out, I will no longer need bandages on my back. That would be awesome - the itchiness is driving me CRAZY!!!

My mom went home yesterday - I can't even express how wonderful she was. She helped me on so many levels - lots of TLC, cleaning, picking things up off the floor, dressing me. I will be forever grateful to her for these weeks of care.

But now, I will be alone most of the day. Lindsay has been helping out so much, but she is working and very busy. I have to get through the day on my own. Thank goodness for all the little gadgets that they give you - a sock "puller-upper," a reacher, a long shoe-horn, etc. Oy, now we're at the hard part...
