Some slight improvement

I took the dressings off of the incisions today. They're healing up ok and don't show any sign of infection. My abdomen is still very swollen, especially on the left. While there's still a lot of pain, it is lessening a bit - I can more easily get myself onto the couch or bed. The painkillers are also helping, though. I'm hoping that by Monday, I'll be able to actually go for a short walk at a reasonable pace.

I'm so lucky to have Ian - he's been helping a lot. I don't have the flexibility to get into the bathtub for a shower, so he's been helping me there. And he's helping me get comfortable on the couch, and he's serving me food when I'm hungry or thirsty :)

I'm about half-finished Ian's scarf. I think it's going to turn out really well.
